    Welcome to the forum.

    M6 is a new modern camera with performance close to cameras in Canon line that cost quite a bit more. With your desire to move to Fuji you apparently like mirrorless systems.

    Get to know your M6 first before making plans to jump ship. It's ok to want what you believe is better equipment. But it can get expensive to chase specifications.

    I think Canon has done a pretty good job with the M series mirrorless cameras. I think it will be a good one for you. It will make professional level images as long as you use professional level technique.

    M6 is a pretty good camera with a very poor lens line up so you will need to get the adaptor and use DSLR lenses if you want a good lens selection.
    Buying also Fuji cameras make no sense to me, these are two totally different camera systems, investing in 2 different lenses and accessories is very expensive, you are either rich or not aware of how much good glass cost.

    My advise, choose one system and invest in it.

    Yes. I usually used to capture the daily life and views so I think mirrorless lens camera is more suitable for me.
    I like the photo quality from M6 and I like the color shown from Fuji that is really awesome! I will jump forward gradually. A lot room to be improved.

    I am not by any means a Canon expert, I use Nikon and Sony but assuming this lens will work on your M6 with the adaptor then I would start with Sigma 17-50mm 2.8 but again if you are going to consider this lens be sure it will work on this camera with the adaptor.

    What do you currently have for lenses? You have an APS-C sensor so it has a 1.6x crop factor. So to get the same view similar to a 50mm on a full frame / film camera. You need about a 30mm lens. 50mm being considered "normal" view.

    true, the 22mm f/2 "pancake" style lens is sharp and inexpensive
    also get a $19 ebay adapter to use Canon's DSLR lens
