I am using Canon 60D with a few lenses since a long time now - 6 years to be exact.
I am doing more of travel and landscape photography but lately making more videos then pictures.
So i think i need a replace/upgrade.

I can switch it with m50 but have never used that and i am not sure if is as good as 60D.

So, if any one of you switched from 60D to m50, what is your experience, what is your suggestion?
I know m50 is better for videos (Vlogging specially) But it is as good as 60D for Travel and landscape Pictures?

quote from the other post:

- Many features of the EOS R (where do you think the EOS R received its litany of features?)
- Focus peaking in the viewfinder for great manual focusing, if that doesn't cut it, then go to 5x zoom
- Ability to use manual focus Rokinon glass with great IQ
- Ability to use EF and EFS glass
- Many more AF points than on the SL2, my only real gripe with the SL2
- Eye AF
- 4K albeit with no DPAF
- Silent shutter (albeit hidden in one of the dial modes)
- Rear touch screen to move the AF point around like a touch joystick
- Telescoping touch screen
- Great resolution viewfinder
- Ability to see exposure instantly in viewfinder, also can see histogram and level
- Small but great grip, easy to hold and shoot with
- Other adapters exist to shoot with other lenses, even Nikon
- Flash shoe for ETTL shooting and remote triggering
- Wifi button to instantly turn on so phone can attach
- Can autofocus lens/TC combinations that go up to f11
- EFM kit lenses about 1/2 the size of EFS kit lenses

Dislikes

- Battery life not great
- Menu button is next to play button, not a delete. Delete is on the directional pad instead, which means you cannot delete an image when zoomed in, you have to hit play again then delete. I have hit the menu button countless times trying to delete an image.
- Buttons are very tiny and recessed. I don't mind small buttons if they stick out a bit, but they are also recessed making it hard to hit
- Really needs a 2nd dial on the left side for something useful
- Limited EFM glass choices
- IS always active on non EFM lenses, unless you switch the IS off
- Slow wakeup
- High ISO seems to be less quality than the SL2

One consideration that really needs to be looked at is your lens use. Canon’s selection of EF-M lenses is really lacking. At least with the 60D you can use EF lenses without an adapter. Adding an EF lens + adapter to every EF-M mount camera I’ve ever owned has always been really combersome as most of them, M50 included, are rather small.
