Great camera for travel. 11-22mm and 22mm pancake are great. The rumored 32mm f1.4 lens would be great addition to the system. Low light perfomance is somewhat disappointing but my main camera is 5div. E.g., I am happier with 5div’s files at ISO 12800 than at ISO 1600 with m50 in low light. If you need high ISO for action (fast ss) in better light than ISO3200 is quite good and similar to ISO 800 in low light due to significant shadow noise.

Fabulous light and very good use of the lens flare! I really like the light and details here! :-)

Very nice. I'm still waiting a call from the store for the 11-22mm to arrive. I also bought last week a 22mm pancake at a very good price from a local ebay.

I have to send mine back to B&H. It switches at random from autofocus to manual focus, and I have to keep switching it back through the menu. Not acceptable. I am going to order another one, both my wife and I like the camera. Giving it another shot. If successful, the camera will replace the wife’s 6D. If not - it will go back to the store for good.

What happens if you press the auto/manual button on the back ?

No sh_t Sherlock! :-) How stupid of me - that was exactly the case. I was pressing this button by accident, and that’s why it was switching to MF.

The camera stays with me. Thanks for saving me all that trouble.

Reason why I mapped this button to Drive mode so it will not have any major effect when pressed accidentally when taking photos.

How’s everyone liking their m50? Happy/ disappointed after a time? I’m wondering if it’d make a better small backup/snap shooter than staying with Fuji and there’s still not a lot of info that I can find. Love the rendering on my Fuji but am tired of the missed shots.

After putting the M50 to more use lately, I am still liking the camera as a smaller, lighter alternative to my 5D3 and/or 7D2. I brought it along to a recent trip to northern Minnesota, and it was handy as a 2nd body with the EF-M 15-45mm mounted while I also carried my 7D2 + 100-400L II on a 2.5 hour boat trip through Voyageurs National Park. It was much easier than managing my 5D3 + 24-105L along with the 7D2.

Auto focus performance has been a big improvement over the original M, which I still own but no longer use. I mostly like the ergonomics, although I still find moving the focus point and setting exposure compensation awkward compared with my bigger bodies.

It's only recently that I really got interested in creating timelapses. I was excited for the M50 timelapse capability but after doing some extensive reading and watching youtube tutorials, I realized M50 timelapse function is somehow limited.

You can only make a timelapse from video and not from still images using an intervalometer. I cannot even use a wired/wireless timer remote because of the lack of port. The only way to do this is through a 3rd party apps that connects via M50 wireless/bluetooth function. I purchased an IOS (no Android) apps Cascable and happy to report that it works perfectly with the M50.

Below link is a short compilation of the first few night timelapse using the M50 and my oldie sony A6000.

M50+11-22mm lens are used in the video from timecode 00:00:26 to 00:00:35 since I only bought the Cascable the other day. The rest is with the A6000.

That's good to know, thanks. Not to go off topic, but I'll share some of my thoughts I've had as I've gotten more in depth in my deliberations and handled the camera in store. In case it'll be helpful to anyone else along the way.

Size- first thing that struck me was that it was smaller and lighter than I'd expected. The CameraSizeComparison website hadn't prepared me for just how tiny a camera it is. It's relatively comparable to my Fuji X-A10, even with the viewfinder bump. Not the same, mind you, but in the neighborhood at least, and that's a plus.
EVF- was well-sized and clear. Would be easy to use.
Autofocus- lightning fast. Immediately apparent it's better and more confident than I was used to.
Grip- here I have to qualify. Having a grip is better than not, and while the depth seemed about right, it's too skinny for my tastes. I'd rather it be chunkier, just a little bit, so I don't have to nearly do leopard's fist to hold it. (FWIW I thought the M6 felt worse and I'm not sure how that's possible because I thought they were the same.)
Screen- as a matter of personal preference, for what I'd use this for, I prefer a tilt rather than a flip out screen.
Other qualms- lens selection, size of system when using adapted lenses, features relative to competitors, price.

I appreciate everyone's insights/opinions. I think if I had only ever been in the Canon ecosystem, exclusively, it'd be a nice option. Or if I vlogged. But right now it's looking like it might not be for me.

Im loving my M50 so far, shooting video with it mainly. I will be getting the 32mm lens this week, cant wait to test that out.

Here is a little video I made with it.

Going to be getting one of these for my wife to use and for my 5 year old to start shooting with. I’ll just throw in a 64Gb card, slap on the new 32mm 1.4 and let them use it. The 5 year old has been watching me shoot for years and wants to mimic me shooting. Plus the wife can use it for her vlogging. It’ll make for a nice family cam. Had the M6 before for her and she didn’t like the flip up screen and I hated not having an EVF for it. Now wi5 an EVF and a flip out screen and the new 32 1.4, should make for a good combo for them and useable for me when I don’t want to carry the big cameras around.

I ended up buying an M50 to replace my broken M5 (I ran over it with my car, don't ask).... and I'm a fan thus far. It's very similar to the M5 with fewer customizable controls, but I kind of like the simplicity of it. I've had it out shooting a few times and it's a pretty solid performer with the 18-150mm and a couple of adapted lenses:

Just out of interest how many bracketed shots will it do? I have a M5, but prefer the articulated screen.


Olympus M1 MkII, Olympus M5 MkII: Lenses covering 8 - 300mm
Canon M5: A variety of Canon, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina, prime and zoom lenses, Samyang fisheye, 2 lovely Minolta MD, just for fun a Helios 44-2 58m - and adapters.

The M50 is just like the M5 in this regard.
