If your really interested in a 50mm lens for you camera you will need to buy an adaptor that will let you use any Canon lens. You should be aware that a 50mm lens on your M camera is effectively an 80mm lens because of the M's sensor size. You have to multiply any lenses focal length by 1.6 to get the equivalent in terms of a full frame sensor when used on your M.

The only lenses that work without the adaptor are lenses with the name EF-M. This adaptor may fit your budget:

This 50mm lens will work with the adaptor and is reasonably priced:

At some time you should consider getting this EF-M lens:
