Yes the exterior is all plastic except the mount. The R6 build quality is very similar to the M50. If you want a magnesium exterior it's either the R or R5.

If you want a magnesium exterior it´s either the R or R5.........kidding?

You can´t find a moulded magnesium housing on the R6 or R5 (have the R5) only plastics and internal aluminium mounting plates. Pls. look at Lensrentals Canon R5 tear down blog.

Compare with my`old´ thrusty 5DM3 and a proper mag. housing.
