And like good AF, but it will be mainly for static shots, not action or anything like that. I like the dual dials of the M5, but do I lose anything in: AF, colors, DR or noise?

Even though you don’t plan on shooting any “action” per se, I’d still recommend getting the M50 over the M5 for the improved AF. The M5’s AF can be frustrating in lower light and lower contrast, esp with a slower zoom mounted. It’ll balk entirely at times (I shot with one for two years).

And if you’d like some outstanding autofocus, then put the M6ii on your list too. Even for people (and kids running around) I think you’d appreciate the almost instant autofocus.  It’s much more in line with your RP.

Good luck with your choice!
