EOS M50 is massive seller and Canon is almost not able to keep any of the Rs in stock, that indicates that the camera market is alive and well.

That's not what the overall numbers say about the camera market. Point and shoots were down by about 1/10th in 2010, and ILC is about half what they were at the market's peak (2012).

I don't think the M50 is a roaring success for Canon, or they would be putting more into the EOS-M format. They have to sell about 5 to 10 R50's to equal the money Canon gets from the R5 and the R-mount lenses people will buy. Instead, we have rumors of whether they will introduce an R mount APS-C.

I sold an unseen used M50 in 1 hour the other day.

and I also believe that Canon has zero idea on what to do with the M system.

This has been going on for nearly a decade.

The current problem with the R Cameras and Lenses seems to be the global issues with manufacturing and shipping.

I am seeing the market bifurcating into the no-camera (Cell Phone) and full-frame, and mostly higher-end, mirrorless. I can afford the R5 and L lenses, so I am happy. But there is a huge gap between no-camera and the entry-level full-frame mirrorless. It's looking to me like the in-between market, including APS-C mirrorless, will get squeezed out. It is not what I want to see; Heck, I like the size of the 4/3rd system. But that seems to be where the market is going.
