"Try that with DSLR."

I chose to shoot most outdoor shots with an aperture of + or - f/5. So far performance is fabulous. In practice, the Sony produces superlative images. The Sony phase and contrast system has it beat. The second problem is the focusing controls.

"Love this Streaming Mirrorless Camera!"

Prompt delivery and everything in good shape. Needed to get it in time to experiment & get used to it. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1. The second problem is the focusing controls. They're a good choice for all around work.

It has the best image quality of any Streaming Mirrorless Camera I have ever owned. The grip is excellent for medium and large hands. That being said I just love to travel and taking pics as a hobby. The grip is excellent for medium and large hands. I still can tolerate that by just working on selected photos.

Canon EOS M50 Final Thoughts

"Overall, very pleased."

It is easy to use and the picture quality is out awesome. Low light seems to be better than the GH4 or G7. The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. The case is great to store the accessories in too. Right now, this is the best of the breed.

"For me, a non-issue."

Been using the Fujifilm for about 2 weeks now with no issues. In spite of all the motion on my end, the pictures were sharp. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little. I can't recommend the Fujifilm enough. As an old pro I therefore wanted a second body.
