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.
