I've had a Canon T2i guessing for 9 years now and it still works great but of course just doesn't have the features of the newer cameras. I mainly do outdoor photography like landscapes, macros, and wildlife (some BIF mainly larger birds like Bald Eagles). I did photograph a gravel bike race last fall which was fun but definitely a learning experience. The mirrorless cameras seem to be gaining popularity but I have existing lenses I like for my amateur photography. I know there's an adapter for the M6 Mark II to use EF and EF-S lenses but I'm not sure I want to go that route.

My local camera shop is having their tent sale next week and he said it's their biggest sale of the year even Christmas and they have a 14 day return policy. I'm leaning towards the 90D and looking for advice if that would be a good upgrade or I should look at something else?

These are the lenses I currently own. I know some people say that some older lenses have problems with sharpness with the 90D. If anyone knows if any of these lenses are good to go or have problems please let me know.

Canon EF 50mm 1.8 II

Canon EF-S 10-18mm 4.5 IS STM wide-angle

Canon EF 100mm 2.0 macro

Sigma DG 150-500mm 5.0 APO HSM

Sigma DC 18-250mm 3.5 HSM (walk-around/vacation lens)

Any advice would be appreciated.

I don't have any of those. My 50mm 1.8 died. I just ordered the 10-18mm STM. I also have the f/3.5-5.6 18-55mm, f/4-5.6 18-55mm STM, 55-250 (older model), Tamron 70-300VC. They all needed a bit of adjustment with the 90D. The f/4-5.6 18-55 required very little if any. I also just got a Sigma 100-400 and the dock to adjust it. It focused too close at every  focal range but is very sharp after resetting it. The dock allows 16 adjustments. Not sure it it would work on your Sigma 150-500 but if it does, it's a good investment.

It would be best to test the lenses you have with the new body. I upgraded from a T3i and think it is a vast improvement. And with the 90D, you can microfocus the lenses you have so hang onto them until you test them.

This is an excellent tutorial for the 90D and is worth watching if you are getting one.
