When we went to Dickinsn to shoot the Christmas lights, l had to carry heavy gear-D7000, Tamron 16-300, and mid sized tripod. lt was hard on my back. The more l researched the Canon M50, the more l liked it. l made a list of all the things l've been wanting to put on Ebay. Those things should generate close to enough $$$ to get the M50. Last night l pulled the trigger and ordered the white body with 15-45mm from B&H. lt had a $300 instant savings. When l was checking out, a window popped up. Get the Canon EOS EF-EOS-M adapter added to the bundle for $38 instead of 188. Sweet! So l added it. l was planning on getting a 3rd party lens adapter for about $40 or 50. So that turned out better. Ended up getting the body lens kit, Watson battery, Canon lens adapter, and PS Elements 2019 for $730usd. l'll probably get a cheap adapter on Ebay so l can use my Canon FD glass with it.

I was recently looking at M50's, but I want to wait and see what Nikon comes up with for a DX.


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

You may have to wait a long time. Yes l am curious to see what Nikon comes up with as far as DX mirrorless. But l've got a feeling it's going to cost much more than l paid for the M50 and 15-45mm lens.

Just picked up a used old Fuji CSC for Angela.  Very impressed with the build quality.  :)
