No AF hit and IQ around the edges will suffer a bit, haven't noticed any kind of hit in the center of the frame. Remember that the view is wider and brighter, so IQ losses are mitigated due to these factors.

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.

The M50 is a great travel camera, especially if you use EF-M lenses. I can fit my entire kit in a rather small shoulder bag. The kit includes the M50, 11-22mm, 15-45mm, 55-200mm and 22mm f/2 pancake EF-M lenses, a Canon Speedlite 270EX II, Spider Black Widow holster, battery charger, extra batteries, memory cards and a CPL filter. It's tight, but everything fits.

Here is a photo of the bag, sitting next to my Canon 5D3 + EF 24-105L lens for comparison.

I've finally had the chance to put some serious mileage on my Rokinon 12mm, and I have to say the lens is really making me slow down and more deliberate. I remember I could get good focus with a 20mm, but the UWA is throwing me for a loop, even with focus peaking. Thought the lens was a bit off, but with the help in this thread, I've come to the conclusion that learning UWA is a whole new thing than what I'm used to. Even though I enjoy fully manual lenses, having the AF option is really nice. Found the M50 is actually really, really good at AF and I trust it enough to nail focus when I'm having a difficult time with it. Most of the time the M50 has fallen flat or produced something I wasn't happy with, I went back and looked at what happened and found the cause to be user error or just me deciding to speed things up and take a short cut. And oddly enough, "pro mode" on my phone's camera actually has made me love my M50 more.

I’m looking for a telephoto for wildlife/bird-ing and seeking advice. I have the 55-200 but need more reach without buying a brick! Thinking sigma 100-400 or Tamron or should I save for canon 100-400 L ii? I have the EOS-M adapter. Thanks!

Tamron or Canon, from what I have seen in reviews over the years. Both are good, the Canon just a bit better overall, but probably only really noticeable on higher end bodies that can actually drive the AF fast.

The Sigma 150-600 is a great lens to consider too, but it is a beast to carry around and hold.

The M50 doesn't really drive lenses as fast as they can with bigger bodies/more power. I think budget probably drives this decision more than IQ or anything like that.

That being said, here is the 100-400II with a 2xIII on the M50.

Dusted off the M50 today. I do like both the 22mm and 32mm lenses.

Just bought M50 with 15-45 and 55-200 lenses. It is a Canon bundle with EOS-M adapter, 16GB SD card and bag.
The bag included with the bundle is way too big for just the m50 + 2 lenses.
I als have the 24/7 small holster that I thought would be good, but that is wee bit small.
Looking for an ideal bag that will take just M50 and these two lenses.
Appreciate if you have any inputs..

I got in on this deal too. Owned the M50 previously (see shot above!) and sold off shortly after a trip last Oct. It's a bit small in my hands. But at this price and what was included, I bought it again! Can't comment on smaller bag. I actually like the one included in this package! Good luck.

Actually the size is the biggest regret about M50. My hands are too big for her and my nose keeps to change my focus point in portrait shots. So I setup the up left side of the lcd to be active for focusing but I still struggling a bit cause in this way I can't properly held the camera.

It's not everyday you take a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and find it almost empty. Empty enough to take shots without people in them! Then again, it's not every day NYC is under quarantine from a pandemic. The positive is that the situation presented me with a once in a lifetime opportunity to shoot it this way!
