As an update, my Meike adapter is still working very well, and they are in stock.

Hey TeamSpeed and others! I'm going to pick up an R6 soon and just wonder how secure the connection between the body and Meike adapter is? I'm planning to use the R6 frequently with a 100-400 II and 1.4x TC attached. I've read some reviews on Amazon and seems like people are saying that the Canon adapter clicks in place with security pins but the Meike does not. Any first hand knowledge is welcome. And, sorry if I missed this detail earlier in the thread, I only read the last few pages.

Mine is fine, but amazon cust service is good, you can just return it if you have an issue.

Hey Carey,

I've got a favor to ask. I wonder if now that you are shooting the R6 if you could write up an serious comparison/review.

When the R, R5, and R6 were just initially being talked about, you had a lot of experience (rare experience, almost exclusive on this forum) with the M series. I can't recall which model, but I recall reading your posts mentioning a lot of similarities between the two series.
It stands to reason that Canon was "sandboxing" with the M series and a lot of the success of the R is due to what Canon learned with the M series.

So now, you have both in your hands, no?

Many of us "optical viewfinder" only people have come around with the R, and to me that means that suddenly your talk about how impressive the M series was seems to carry more weight :) :oops:

So, here's the question;

Would you be willing to write up a comparison between how the R6 compares to the M you are shooting?
As talk of an EOS R7 is going around, I can't help but keep thinking that the R7 already exists in the M6II with that same 90D sensor!

Anyway, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

You didn't ask me, but I'm going to say this. If I could buy my M6 Mk II in an "R" body with an R battery today, I'd buy it in a heartbeat and I'm not even sure I'd care if they added anything.

I have the M50 and R6 (and had an R).

The M50 functionality/behavior​, to me, felt like it was very close to the R. Touch screen to focus, including defining a quandrant, and many other general things were very similar. I think the RP and R really built off the M series (like the M5), but with a FF sensor and a new mount.

AF isn't quite up to the speed, but acts the same, but you do get 10fps.
Noise is a bit worse than the 7D2 (just a bit), and obviously worse than the R.
Eye AF works pretty well, and behaves just like the R did before Canon updated the firmware for the R which made eye AF better.
Silent shutter exists too, but it has to be in some sort of strict shooting mode to activate that.
EVF looks pretty close to the R, probably though exactly the same as the RP.
Battery life is terrible.

Quite frankly, I think the best statement I can make on the M50 is that "it is the crop equivalent to the RP, but better framerate."

The R6 is much better on all fronts, better configurability, better AF, etc and slightly better noise handling than the R, but less resolution. If Canon would make an M6II style camera in the R mount format with the R6/R5 AF speed and higher framerates, it would definitely sell, especially due to the pixel density. If they offer the M50 type of pixel density in an R mount, I am not sure it would be as easily accepted.

I went with the M50 because I wanted the integrated EVF and not have to buy another add-on, and because I sold the 7D2, I missed having a crop body, and finally it is very travel friendly. Some perks since that decision is the ability to add a speedbooster which gives me back a FF view on the crop sensor with an extra stop light, a few 3rd party very fast small lenses like the 50 1.2, etc.

I've been wanting the M50 for a while now but have not pulled the trigger because I have the 7D2. The portability factor and the flippy screen are the reasons. Especially now that I have the R6, gettin' down low w/o a flippy screen is getting old, especially when you're (me) old! LOL

Thanks Boss, this helps a lot in understanding where the capabilities rank. Having owned the R and now the R5 I am well aware of the significant differences between these iterations. If the M6II is more of a smaller faster APS-C R Vs. a smaller R6, that makes a pretty big difference in how I would view it.

The power of the M series is portability, plain and simple. Samyang makes some killer lenses for the M mount, like the 12.0 f2, 50 1.2, etc. Very small but extremely useful lenses, but then you can add in the Viltrox speedbooster that removes the crop factor (or close), and gives you a stop of light back. It makes the M50 almost like a baby FF body minus the better FF noise handling.

So the M series is portable and very versatile. This is one of the reasons it sells so well in some of the other countries where people are likely to be a bit more active and walk/bike just about everywhere. You don't need a big bag to hold the M series and a couple very nice fast lenses. You can then also use EF and EFS lenses too.

Now that I have grown to like the Canon EVF, that M6 II is looking very good to me.
The removeable EVF for the portability factor is a big plus. I'm in no rush to get another camera, but I'll be keeping an eye out for refurbs etc.

Dear R6 owners, do you miss the LCD screen on the top right? Is there a similar screen on the back that shows you everything, or do you have to flip through pages ?

I've decided to get an R6. but the lack of the top LCD is what is making think.

I thought I'd miss that top screen and before I bought the R6 it was a preference. Using the camera now, I never think of that screen nor miss it. It's easy enough to get information on back screen.

I wonder if anyone is having difficulty with the R6 EVF in bright light. Today we had clear sunny skies and also brilliant white snow so plenty of light. Even cranking the EVF level to 5 I found it to be too dim. That is not so much of a problem on cloudy days but I still need it set to 4. Today I had the 100-400 on with 2x and shooting at F11 or F13. I'm thinking that combination may be part of the problem. Shooting this sitting Hawk did not cause too much of a problem whereas birds in flight or even Goldeneyes on the water did.
