I'd prefer something wider than 17mm for the 1.61 Canon crop, but I'd take this over adapting the 17-50/55mm if they made it in EF-M: https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/leaked-first-images-of-the-new-tamron-17-70mm-aps-c-e-mount-lens/

Send emails to Tamron if your are interested!

that lens looks as big as a full frame 24-105 F4 why do folk buy APS-c only to lust after lenses as big as FF and as expensive...or in many cases more expensive

i am not saying the M don't need a better standard zoom but something like the fuji 18-55 f2.8-4 would be more in keeping

if you have a bag or want a bag full of APS-c F2.8 zooms and F1.2/F1.4 primes you may as well have the equivalent full frame F4 zooms and F1.8/F2 primes for the same size ish

Flexibility. I can have an APS-C camera kit as small as I like if I don’t need low-light.

And don’t forget about the weight. The Tamron is 180grams lighter than the RF 24-105. An M50 body is another 100g lighter than an RP, or the M6ii is 250g lighter than the R. All in, that starts to add up.
