Just sold my 18-150 today, got what I paid for it and good riddance.

I'm curious – what about it didn't you like?

I had a soft copy. Plus it hunted and rarely gathered. I know many folks have a good relationship with this lens but we just didn't hit it off. When I want longer on the M5 I use the 100L, it's big sure but it really produces beautiful images and the AF speed and accuracy is better than I had hoped for.

I also just got rid of my 100-400 so I'm hanging out in the lower focal regions and enjoying it until my dream primes come along. (Non L 85 and 135L version 2) The 22 rarely leaves my M5 and has become my B&W go to.

In combination with the M5 the classical 200mm f2.8 is a nice option, it is pretty light and works well. If you combine it with the 2x extender you will need to stop down to f8.but than this combo works well. The 70-200 f2.8 has more pop, but it is much heavier....

Any experience with LCD screen while in super bright sunlight? That's what I'm most worried about before buying the Canon M6 vs Canon M50. M5 isn't an option as the flip downwards is just silly.

I've had only occasional issues with that, and can usually use my hand to shade the display.  I may pick up the EVF-DC2 at some point.

I agree about the screen yet I just keep it flush and don't use the flippy feature, that alone is not enough to have me buy another M series instead, the M5 is king.
