I have the lens.

- I never touch the bottom of the M50 with this lens. I hold the middle of the lens with one hand and the right hand just hits the buttons. I haven't yet slid the door open accidentally.

I found that my right little finger was curving round under the body and occasionally sliding over the release slider. :-(

I suspect a monopod may be the answer for me with this lens...

- I use the upper right quadrant as my focusing area to eliminate the nose changing AF points.

Maybe I'm missing how the focusing area on the screen thing works? I thought the idea was that you're telling the camera which part of the view to focus on?

In this instance, I kept ending up at the right hand upper quadrant by accident, but I was trying to focus on the centre of the screen. Even at the 600mm end of the zoom, most of the shots were a way off filling the viewfinder, so having focus upper right wouldn't have worked.

In the end, I just worked on remembering to close the screen before shooting, but I am starting to build up a couple of wishlists for it, including the ability to customise one of the buttons to toggle the touch part of touchscreen on/off!

You control how much or how little of the screen you use for change of the AF point. I set mine to use the upper right quadrant instead of the whole screen or the lower right quadrant.

Thanks! It all makes sense now! I've just changed it to upper left now, and it's way away from anywhere that might get in the way of my nose now! :-)

My wife jumped ship and went to a Nikon D7500. Looks like I'll be selling all of her M50 gear!

Got a new toy and ran it through its paces this evening!

Not a bad little portable unit for $55. :)

1lb or 20lb propane, was going to think about electric, but I can take this anywhere, just have wet chips in a bag, a bottle of water, a 1lb propane tank that I can refill afterwards, and smoke some meat on the road. :) It is very small (size of a vertical roller cooler) and only two racks, but is great for a family of 4-6.

Doing bacon wrapped lil smokie sausages with brown sugar and large sausage right now, with applewood.
