Looks like there are many happy snappers with this camera.... might have to invest.

My observation, the face has to be relatively close to the camera for the eye AF to engage.
And the regular face detect seems to work at greater distances so maybe it only engages when the DOF is shallow (subject close), by design.

With the many features of this camera and the performance, why is it classified as the entry level camera and 2nd to that of the M5?

Not unless you want more dials.

Here’s a cool thing I found today (probably in the manual though). If shooting movies in P, TV, AV, M AF works as normal. Snappy and instant. If shooting in Movie mode the AF is slowed down and more glides in to focus. Pretty cool. I know some of the DSLR’s have a speed setting for AF, but its nice to have it in the M50 as well, even if its not quite the same thing.
