Anyway, just picked up one (locally) - traded in my M10. I was also weighing the M5, but at the end of the day, it came down to size and the M6 can still squeeze into a Dashpoint 30 bag (the M5 requires a "Mirrorless Mover" or equivalent size larger bag). May be the first M I actually enjoy shooting with. The buttons and dials make it feel much more like a serious camera, and you even get 2 custom modes to boot! More time is needed with it for a full "first impressions" type of post, but upon unboxing, I like what I see so far. I will say this - Canon for some reason went really bare-bones with the body-only package. All you get is the body + strap, a "getting started" guide, a battery and the charger (plus warranty card) - that's it. No cables, no CD, etc. Not even a USB cable - and EOS Utility can't even connect to the M6 via it's Wifi. I did have a spare cable, but just note.
More to come later.
Let me know what your thoughts are with the M6. I'll eventually trade my M3 in for the M6 since I like how the flip screen flips up instead of down for real estate photography. Does anyone use Flashpoint (Godox) gear by any chance? I want to know if my XT32C triggers will continue to work with the M6 and M5.

- AF can still hunt sometimes, even in good light
- Buffer could be improved, particularly given the speed of this camera
- Images are softer out of camera and need PP work if good sharpness is desired
