After years with a Canon DSLR (first 300D and now 60D) it's time for me to switch to a mirrorless system. Travelling with 3 kids (where one of them is sometimes on me) makes it less appealing walking around with a DSLR these days...

When looking at options it looks like as most people pick a Fuji X-series as their mirrorless option. I did remember that Canon's first mirrorless cameras weren't great, but the M50 seems to get decent reviews.

I'm mostly interested in stills and not video and looking into having a travel kit that won't be too heavy. I'm usually travelling with a single lens (18-135 these days) and sometimes take a prime (used to be nifty-fifty but these days trying the 24mm pancake).

Another factor is that I'm usually shooting JPEGs and really don't have the time to edit my photos (3 kids...), so the out of camera JPEG quality is important to me.

What I find appealing about the M50 (aside from the lower price point) is that I can reuse existing lenses. Most of them aren't brilliant, but I grew to like them. On the other hand the 18-55 Fuji kit lens is amazing (based on reviews).

Is the M50 indeed a good option for me?

What's your budget for both the new body and the new lenses?

If your facts are different we could save the peace just by calling it copy to copy variation.
