TS, I have a question for you.

My travel kit is my old 60D, EF-S 18-200, Sigma 8-16. The EF-S 18-200 is a pretty sharp copy and the Σ 8-16 is stellar.

Does it make sense to get an EOS M50 with the adapter for EF-S to replace my 60D?

I know the form is a lot smaller.

Is the sensor significantly better?

Is it noticeably lighter?

Is it worth it?

The camera is significantly smaller than the 60D. However I would only suggest moving to the M50 if you plan on getting a few small EFM mount lenses for travel. I have both EFM and then 2 EF adapters (normal commlite EF to EFM, and viltrox EF speedbooster) for my EF lenses, but if I travel, I usually take 3 of my EFM lenses.

If you are going to use all EF/EFS lenses on the M50, then maybe the move isn't worth it, at least not for a size advantage.

The resolution is nice (18 to 24), and the IQ is definitely a bit better. Also, you are able to AF with 1.4x TCs on some lenses, and the speedbooster with fast EF prime lenses is pretty amazing. It is a good tool to try out Canon mirrorless without spending alot.

I agree. For me, the biggest attraction of the M50 is its size. I have a full travel kit that fits in a rather small shoulder bag. Included is the M50, EFM 11-22mm, EFM 15-45mm, EFM 22mm pancake and EFM 55-200mm, along with all the normal accessories. If I was using EF or EFS mount lenses and an adapter, I would never be able to fit such a versatile kit in such a small bag.

A little fun with the Viltrox speed booster and 100-400.

I got my 70-300 USM II and now I see what you mean. Not that I did not know the size or weight of the lens. But with EF-M 55-200 in comparison, it feels huge.
I only hope Canon comes out with one tele (longer than 300) in EF-M. That hope is grim with the talk of getting EF-M getting killed anyways. Time will tell I guess.

I am using a Tamrac 5534 Adventure (external link) bag. Here is a photo, next to my 5D3 + EF 24-105L for size comparison:

Interesting second image.
Do you have a close up of horses and cart?
