Thanks! Since I sold my 5DIV (in anticipation of owning an R series FF), I've had to lower my expectations, but with decent glass one can still get a decent pic or two (out of the hundreds I throw away  :p )

Thank you!
I haven't done a proper comparison (tripod, etc.) between the two for sharpness or anything else.
I've used the 250 when I want a little more reach or need its lesser minimum focus distance for macro-type shots. I enjoy having the native 200 on the M50 without the adapter because it makes the rig so much lighter and smaller, and I'll take that one with me when I travel by air.
I haven't noticed any other differences to this point- I guess the 250's construction is a bit more solid.

I did a quick test in the M50 thread.

It's been two months that I have an M10. I sold my XTi with the 18-55mm for 150euros and bought an M10 for 140.

So far I like
It's small with few buttons. All functions are easily accessed from the touchscreen menu.
Auto settings work great too.
The screen it tilting.
The flash can be tilted and bounced.
There is Wifi connection.
The 15-45mm is a very versatile lens, I can reverse it and have 1:1 Macro.
I can shoot with almost any lens available with adapters.
Focus peeking is a joy to use with manual lenses.

What I don't like
It's big, it can fit only in a jacket pocket.
Battery life is short.
AF is not very fast.

I have an M39-M and an EF-EF-M adapters.
My M39 rangefinder lenses are not very sharp nor focusing close, so I use the kit lens instead.
My EF lenses mounted on the adapter hunt a lot to achive focus. They are also very big compared to the size of the camera.
Composing with the screen only needs some time, so I cannot use it for street photography, the camera is big and easily spotted too.
Perhaps I'll buy a native M-mount chinese lens to make the combo smaller but then again I will be restricted to a single focal length.

So, the camera sits a lot on the shelf because of it's size, it is not a small and portable system.
If I go out with friends or for street shooting I'll bring a capable compact (Sony RX100 or Olympus XZ-10)
If I'll go for a serious work I'll take the 5 or the 6D and a bag full of lenses and gear. They are full frame, faster and easier to use, with their viewfinder, sturdy grip, and fast lenses. Surely a more enjoyable experience than with a smaller camera.

I will bring the M10 sometimes to test manual lenses, shoot portraits with an extra slave flashgun or for lanscapes and urban fragments but with all the lenses the package becames big and heavy again..
I guess I am not ready for mirrorless yet...

Some simple photos

“I guess I am not ready for mirrorless yet...”

I miss the capabilities of my late 5D4, and am frequently frustrated with my M50, but until I acquire the former's ML replacement I'll just have to get by.
Meanwhile, things with wings...

Nice one. Especially the musicians, surrounded by the colors. :)

Been pondering this and wanted to get your thoughts:

32mm EF-M vs. 28/2.8 EF IS?

For plain walking around the 32mm get's the nod. However I do like being able to use the EF glass when necessary so in that regard the 28mm allows that and use on a FF body. Can also use an extension tube for macro so the EF side does have appeal with the adapter.

Your thoughts?

Can't comment on the two lenses but don't understand the last sentence. You can get extension tubes for the EF-M mount. Canon doesn't make any but several third parties do.

My confusing word salad. :oops:

The Canon extension tube with the EF-M to EF/S lens adapter was my intended thought. The EF glass performs really well on the M and that's what I was leading into. Not sure how well the Fotodiox EF-M tubes are.
