    My simple answer is 'bulk'. I haven't used the newish 200D but did use a 100D, and prefer the M5 for its compact size and bulk. (I also have a 7D2, and a range of EF lenses, including L series, but use the lenses on the Ms that were designed for it, the M series lenses.)

    You forgot to mention that the 5-axis in-camera stabilisation of the EOS M5 is only effective when shooting movies. The built-in stabilisation is digital – not a moving sensor as in some makes.

    I still don't see any answer to my real point which was what is the reason for choosing mirrorless for macro? I wasn't talking about the general merits of the M series, just wondering why they would be considered superior for macro. Yes, they have more a/f points than the 200D, but with macro you'll almost certainly be using single point and/or manual focus by moving the camera.

    If the 200D doesn't have focus peaking then that would be an advantage for a mirrorless camera, most of which do I believe.
