  • I much prefer much better low noise at much higher iso and secondarily much better tracking for such things as birds in flight. Maybe I have to switch to a Sony A9 and get use to its terrible human ...
  • Here is the good news.  A third party that is well respected is providing a product for our M system.  Hopefully, this will be a start of many more things to come including lenses from third parties. ...
  • And guess what it won't. And guess again....it just might be one of the two or three camera manufacturers still producing non smartphone cameras after the current collapse of non smartphone camera ...
  • I am not sure which camera companies when this all settles down will be left standing.  If I was left to guess for sure I would bet Sony and Canon for sure as they have the financial heft and the  ...
  • If (when) you buy a new canon M whatever, keep your canon compatible lenses at first or at least the ones you use.  The ones you do not use sell them.  Once you have the new camera for a while ...
  • "thought the AF system is used to measure the distance, and the preflash combined with the distance is used to calculate the needed flash power: ETTL. The M50 has ETTL, so i think it does the ...
  • Well on my m50, I have set on of the wheel locations to +_ which lets you toggle between your three setting above  and change whichever one you want.  I then have on other one set for manaul/af ...
  • If you buy the M50 but the adapter, you won't be sorry.  Buy extra (3 total) batteries.  You can find genuine canon on ebay for much less.   The 18-150 is a great starter lens plus your existing ...
  • Dear Confused, The camera business is in a pretty steep decline because of the smart phone.  If you look in this forum you will find a note from the ceo of canon talking about their next years ...
  • One thing I would think about with the M lenses is they can't be used with any other Canon cameras.  So I think of mine m lenses (I use the 18-150 all the time) as great throw away lenses which I ...
  • Colin, I have a slightly different take.   I have both the M5, M50, his d80 and the D80 predecessor 7d2. I agree on the M5 with the dials and wheels.  I miss my c1 and c2 especially from my M5.  I ...
  • I have a 80D, 7d2 and a M5.  I use my M50 now.  It has better af than all of them.  The sensor is basically the same as the 80d.  The only thing I miss is the c1 and c2.  I setup my custom buttons ...
  • 20-30 years????; 6 to 8 or so years would be pretty far out as fast as things are changing, in my opinion.  Technological change is accelerating faster and faster and what is here today will be ...
  • Actually, to be truthful Canon does not care we you or I want.  They are investment constrained.  They mostly will update what they think their M50 customers will buy either a M50II or a M5II as ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon Financial Results and projections
    https://www.canonrumors.com/canon-inc-releases-q1-2019-financial-results/ This is a great article.  It is an honest article as to what Canon thinks what is occuring in the camera market place and ...
  • Those who complain that the M or whatever size of the camera and lens combination is don't understand the classic method of holding the camera/lens: left hand under the lens; right hand on the ...
  • Doesn't my M5 look like a dsrl?  Actually my M50 does also I think.  I guess Canon needs to put a hump back on top of the camera. Bp
  • I still don't understand why costco et al does not sell M50 vs SL3?  The general public probably does not know the real difference between the two. Bp
  • This chart and the sl3 basically says it all about the M.  The M is basically a camera that sells only well ASIA (Japan) and not worldwide.  It is not a worldwide sales camera for reasons I don't ...
