Hit the display button to turn off the rear display as you walk around. I moved to the M50 from the SL2, and it doesn't even have a disp button to turn off the rear display, I have to map one of the few buttons to do this if desired. :(

Thanks, TeamSpeed, that's a good idea, especially since I was using the optical viewfinder.

How do you like the M50? I just got a 6d2 and am thinking about selling the SL2 and my efs lenses for a M50.


Rocking the 6d2 and SL2 and (mostly) the 24-105 f4 L, 50mm f1.8 STM, and 135mm f2 L along with a few others.

I love the camera, it fits in my coat pocket with the kit lens, and I took it everywhere this weekend.

IQ is great as expected, high ISO is right there with the SL2, etc, so no complaints in that department. Manual focus with the focus peaking is awesome, if that doesn't work well for the scene, you can then just zoom in 5x in the viewfinder and use that for manual focus. Just a great little camera! I don't miss the SL2 at all really at this point.

I have 2 big ergonomic/feature gripes though.

- They put the delete button on the 4 way pad, which is used to view your image when you zoom in. The button next to the play button is the menu button. I have probably hit that menu button about 400 times this weekend trying to delete an image. I would view the image, zoom in, and then decide to delete. I have to hit play again, then hit delete, then select one of 3 delete options. I cannot reprogram the menu button to be delete. It is a headache to delete images on this camera.

- There are 3 AF modes: AI Servo, One Shot, and Continuous AF. However continuous AF is a menu option separate from the AF Mode of One Shot and AI Servo. IMO, these should be 3 options on AF mode, not 2 on one setting and 1 on another setting. I have to program 2 buttons to control these instead of just one to cycle through the 3 modes. I know why they did it, but I wish I could at least configure this in some way. I could see having continuous AF turn on or off for One Shot, but again, I wish there was some sort of AF mode expansion option that enabled continuous AF options with One Shot and AI Servo.

The delete one is my big gripe.

I went a little crazy with the teleconverters during the last full moon. This is 400mm (f2.8) + 2x Sigma TC + 1.4x Kenko TC.
This image is NOT cropped at all.

If anyone decides they would like to try mirrorless, IMO the M50 is a very close cousin to the SL2. Great grip, small body, with many of the features/functions of the EOS R. You can also produce very near FF quality images with the M50 that you cannot with the SL2, using hardware that doesn't exist for the Rebel line. I had the SL2 for a year, and just replaced it.

As travel friendly as the SL2 was, the M50 is even more so.

I've been enjoying traveling with this tiny camera.

A shot from southern Louisiana with the kit lens...
