These pretzels are making me firsty.

Interested in the M50. Looks like it will be a neat little camera.

Great...
Now can we have a 50mm 1.4 IS and 28mm 1.4 or should we wait for 1st party name brand companies like sigma to do them? ;) haha! ;D ;D ;D

For the further cropping in 4K video, does it mean that it will use a small part of the censor but focal length remains the same as APS-C?

dpreview is reporting:

4K video at 1.6 crop with no DPAF at a bitrate of 120mbps h.264

the bitrate is actually decent, that's better than you get out of any of the Sony's (100mbps)

IMO the lack of DPAF is the one disappointment I see with this over anything else. it makes this a not-to-great option as a 4k vlogger camera.

Disappoinments! Disappoinments!! Disappoinments!!! as usual from the leader in digital imaging solutions

SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card UHS-I compatible WTF Canon?
4K UHD* at 24 frames per second
* Shooting at 23.98p is possible. Shooting takes place by cropping pixels from the center of the sensor. Contrast detection AF is used.

high-speed 120p** mode is possible in HD
** AF is fixed. Playback is 1/4 slow motion playback (29.97p).
I really don't know when these knuckleheads will catch up with the competition

It says silent shooting but there is no mention of an electronic shutter. Sounds like another gimmick. I would be happy to proven wrong here

So a ~2.5 effective FF crop with the asp-c sensor and the 1.6 crop?

The crop part wasn't unexpected but the lack of dpaf in 4k is quite the downside - this has been confirmed?
I wonder why 30 fps couldn't have been done either, seems a bit of an odd limitation

Wow, no DPAF in 4K. Never mind, no longer interested. Maybe next time, Canon.
Wow, is this true?
Yep
I really should not be surprised, but I am. Why would a company make a product great by pairing their most powerful feature- DPAF- with a new feature- 4K (okay, new to Canon cameras)- that so many people wanted. They ALMOST had my money.

Because that would make it much too attractive for people ;D

The crop was kinda expected (although I think it comes out to ~ 2.5 FF equiv which is fairly heavy) but the lack of dpaf means it doesn't really have any standout video feature as a canon camera.

The sensor's resolution is 6000x4000 (=24mp). 4k is 3840x2160.

1.6 crop factor, if you applied it proportionately to the sensor would give you 3750x2500, but of course, the aspect ratio is different. So all 1.6 crop means is that Canon is taking the center 3840 pixels horizontally and the center 2160 pixels vertically when recording video.

The lens hasn't changed, so the focal length remains the same as APSC for the purposes of perspective. But for field of view, because you're only getting the center 1.6 out of APSC, you'll need a wider angle lens to capture the same frame.
