Apparently it is 35 mbps video, so I was correct.
Good for you. But you were completely wrong – again – when you stated that any Canon camera with Digic 7 would shoot 4K video. So I'd be careful about patting your own back, a 50% correct rate is a failing grade.
You are the one who is wrong. The Digic 7 can do 4K, but it is the camera that can't cope with the heat. I have said this repeatedly. This is why the 1DXII and 5DIV use Digic 6+ processors and software encoding as MJPEG.
Digic 7 is a variant of Digic DV5, which as you may (or in your case, may not) know does 4K hardware encoding using H.264 at up to 400 mbps (IIRC). They are both the same generation of processors, with minor differences optimized for different applications.
If they put a fan in the M5 it would have been able to shoot 4K using hardware encoding.
