    It would be 448mm, to be exact (so yes, 450mm is darn close ;)).

    Since you do not currently have the lens, the m2 version is definitely the way to go. The original is a darn fine lens, though, and I felt no desire to spend the money to upgrade when the new version came out -- unlike with the 100-400L, where I did upgrade.

    After watching this preview, I'm kind of tempted by the M6 as a travel camera.

    I have the M50, and love it for those times where I want to travel light -- or to take a 2nd body to avoid lens changes but don't want to carry two full sized DSLRs. I would suggest getting native EF-M lenses instead of using the adapter and your EF lenses, though. If you want to travel light, buying a small body and then attaching big lenses really defeats the purpose. I do own the adapter, but rarely use it.

    My entire M50 kit fits in a pretty small shoulder bag. It includes the body, 22mm f/2, 11-22mm, 15-45mm and 55-200mm EF-M lenses, along with a 270EX external flash, Spyder Black Widow holster, charger, spare batteries and SD cards. I preferred the slightly larger M50 over the original M6 because the M50 has a built-in viewfinder -- the M6's are slightly smaller, but the viewfinder is an extra that attaches to the hot shoe. I also own the original EOS M, which I bought on closeout, and one of the things that I disliked was no viewfinder when shooting outdoors.

    Here's a shot I took recently in Iceland with the M50 and EF-M 15-45mm lens:
