2.Olympus OM-D E-M10 MIII
3.Canon EOS m50
4.Sony a7
5.Lumix GX9
6.Fujifilm XT-20

The only mirrorless sytem with which I am familiar is the Fuji X system.  Since product photography benefits from the use of a macro lens I would suggest the T-20 from your list.  The T-100 does not feature interchangeable lenses.  The Fuji 60mm macro is a stunning performer.  I use it every day for product shots.

I'm pretty sure that X-T100 has interchangeable lenses :)

I've settled on OM-D E-M5 II with 12-40 mm 2.8 oly. for 1150$
I'm very pleased

If the products are quite small (jewelry), there are some slick macro lenses for the Canon M50.

For candid portraits a Canon or Panasonic (Lumix) would be handy.

For sensational creative portraits full frame is tops. Which in this list is only the Sony a7. Check lens prices before you leap.

For video Panasonic is tops. Sony a6300 also does well.

As an inexpensive vaca shooter, Oly E-M10 has nice budget lenses.

If you like to fuss with controls for exceptional JPG shots straight out of the camera, the Fuji X-T20 fills that bill. X-T100 is almost as sweet, but with slow autofocus.

So this all depends on your priorities.

If it were me...

1.  a6500 used (under $1,000)
2. a6300
3. Xt20

I am obviously going to lean towards Sony, but it’s hard not to. Sony is at the top of the game atm, and the only company that COULD change that hasn’t released their mirrorless just yet; Nikon. They are using a new mount for it too.

The E-M5MKII is perfect for product photography with the high res setting it has. It will output a 40 megapixel file which will beat any of the other cameras suggested here.
