Any one upgraded from M50 to RP or using both? Is RP going to be big improvement over M50 in terms of AF speed, high iso and 1080p/4k video quality? Is RP going to be as big and heavy as 6D2? I have 6d2 and got M50 refurb on sale with a big discount. Wondering if it is a good idea to move to M50 or just wait for discount on RP? Other option is to keep both. But it is a overkill for my light use.

The RP is basically a FF M50. I bought an R at Christmas for $1200, it was a great holiday Desk and is a better value than the RP. The R is a bit on the larger side though.

I hesitated to pull the trigger when it was at this price. Now, price is back up to holiday season sale. i am also little concerned about size and weight. It felt like pretty close to 6d2 with adapter. I need to check them in some store. Not sure which B&M store carries them in display.

I jumped on this same deal for the R with a buy now and think later attitude. I find the size and weight similar to my 6d. While I am slightly disappointed with this aspect (weight/size) of the R, compared to the M50, I am extremely happy with the results of the R so far. So much so that I am probably ditching the M50 and probably my 6d as well. That deal for $1200 was too good to pass up for me.

With the 15-45mm kit lens. This lens is so underrated but stop down and you will get excellent image with the M50.

My first attempt at shooting the Milky Way. The photos are from back over the summer but they got lost in the shuffle and I just got around to editing them. We were at the beach, so there's light pollution. But even though these are nothing special, I'm really surprised how well the M50 + 15-45mm kit lens did. The second one is at higher ISO (trying different things) so it suffers from more light pollution.

Today I played with RP, M50 and R. M50 is smaller than even SL2. It has that taking pics with phone kind of enjoyment.

RP is way bigger than M50. But it felt fine for me except shape. It is like a L bar. Is there any view finder differences between these two. RP view finder is bigger and nice. M50 view finder is smaller and it has little bit of tunnel like feel.

I handled the R, RP and M50 in store right before I ordered the R from Canon. I don't recall a difference in the view finders between the R and RP. I do know that the shooting info rotates to bottom of the screen as you change from landscape to portrait. Not sure if the RP does that?
I have owned the M50 for the past year and while the weight/size is a benefit, this camera has never felt right in my hands. I picked up the R and while I was initially disappointed in the size and weight, this thing feels great in my hands.

I was checking M50 VF and comparing it with RP. RP has bigger and better VF than M50. I think resolution is the same. I checked R as well. It is almost as big as 6D2. 6d felt better in my hand than R. RP is fine. It is little bit like Rebel with sharp edges (L shape).

Similar to Teamspead, I bought an EOS R during the holiday sales. In my case, it's an upgrade to my 7 year old 5D3. The R was a better deal than the RP, IMO, as you get more camera for the money (better sensor, better EVF, better batteries, etc.). Comparing the R (or RP) to the M50 seems like a fruitless task, though. They are very different cameras built for different situations.

For me, the M50 is really more of a supplemental system to the larger bodies and lenses. It's a terrific camera when you want to travel light. That means also investing in EF-M lenses, as it really defeats the purpose of this body to attach larger EF lenses with the adapter. I do own the adapter, as I got one cheap (about $50). However, it rarely gets used. I certainly wouldn't sell my EOS R, 5D3 and 7D2 to move to the M50 exclusively -- I plan on selling the 5D3, but only because the R will replace everything I use the 5D3 for.

Exactly my thoughts too. The M50 is for family trips, and I even like the speedbooster with it, and would take one or two of the EF lenses with me, but the overall kit size is very nice for those vacations vs the big gear.

It's a do it all camera for me,travel light with the M lenses,I have a smallrig cage I use with it for video with various bits and bobs I can attach to that,this also gives a larger grip to the camera and it also doesn't look small when I use the M50 with my 100-400 for walkabout birding lens. All in all a very versatile little camera.

How much of an IQ and AF speed hit do things take with the speed booster?

I just use camera to take family pics. Trying to avoid 2 camera set up. 6D2 works fine some times but too big for travel.
