But an $1000 camera could use a better kit lens than the pretty mediocre $100 15-45. That lens doesn't even have a proper focus ring for manual focusing.
Will wait for this announcement but will probably not put any more money into the M system.
well even though it can take a while to find a good 15-45mm after finally getting one I love my 15-45mm and if you don't like the 15-45mm then use the 18-55 or the 18-150mm. lots of options. or use the 32mm or use the 22mm,etc.

The M50 also is not a $1000 camera either.

and no lenses this small have a "proper" focus ring and even if Canon made a "better" 15-45mm it still wouldn't have one.

Given the current price point of the M6-2 and relative features of that camera and the M50-2, I have to wonder if the M6-2 price will drop, perhaps by $200, and the M50-2 will take its place. Also, I'd feel a lot better about the entire M system if Canon introduced 2 or 3 lenses simultaneously with M50-2, perhaps a 15 f/2, 53 f/2 and 15-50 f/2.8-4.

If that last lens was released I would get the M50 II + that lens + 22mm. The dreams.. hahaha

That is a very fine set of lenses in combination with the 32 f/1.4!
I just bought a 2nd hand EF-S 15-85 which is quite good optically but lacks a little bit from higher apertures - and 15mm would be fine for landscape + vlogging + tight environments!
That EF-s 15-85 lives on my 90D. Arguably the most versatile of all the EF-s lenses and sharp enough to do the 90D justice, but it IS a bit bulky on the M5. OTOH, a 15-85M that ended at f/6.3 or 7.1 could be compact and very compelling.

Hi Dragon

Really good point about the 15-85. In the Uk one can get a really good used one for just over £200 and on Amazon new they are over £600. A really underrated piece of glass.

Compact? Yes. Compelling? We'll have to agree to disagree. I use the 18-150 on my M5 and find it that the combination is only useful outside. Inside, in dimmer light, the M5 doesn't focus that lens reliably. On the other hand, the camera focuses the Sigma 16 f/1.4, Sigma 30 f/1.4, EF 50 f/1.4 (w/ adapter) EF 85 f/1.8 (w/ adapter), EF 135 f/2 (w/ adapter), EF 16-35 f/4 L IS (w/ adapter) and EF 70-200 f/4 L IS II (w/ adapter) extremely well in low light. One thing I'm hoping for with the M50-2 is more reliable focusing in lower light with slower lenses.

The M50 II will be a welcome upgrade it will be interesting to see how DPAF II works on M series cameras.

I hope there will be an M5 II and if so, I’m please Canon has launched the M50 II first this time as the cheaper M50 with better AF and articulating screen killed M5 sales previously.

If or when the M5 II comes along it will be interesting to see what better spec Canon add to the previously acclaimed flagship model. A Hi-Res articulating screen and IBIS would be great for starters.

Can you be confident it is the camera? As the 18-150 is the odd one out so to speak it does suggest that the lens is the issue.

I think that both the camera and lens are operating as designed but that I'm pushing them far beyond their intended limits. FWIW, all six of my comparison lenses are larger than the 60mm diameter limit that Canon has imposed on their M-mount lenses. I think that limit is a serious mistake.

neither do i.

but canon never dramatically increases the price of subsequent camera models - and the m50 sold in spades because it was under $700 body only.
M50 is 450-500 dollars body only in my country
The ef m 22 f2 in the other hand, so popular they hiked to 2 times the original price

It's a good lens but i was surprised how slow the AF is with that lens. The cheap 15-45 zoom is blazing fast in comparison.

I got a slap on here the other week when I said the M50 II would be up against the new Fuji X-S10. The s10 is being revealed on Thursday by Fuji and as a spoiler, this week Canon announces the M50 II. They are going to make an interesting comparison. The M50 will have better eye detect AF. The S10 has IBIS and a better range of native lenses.
I highly doubt that the S10 eye AF will be better than Canon's. Fuji Eye detect isn't as good as Sony's. Canon's Eye AF, expecially that on the R5 is better than Sony's and any other at the present time. Canon has improved upon both IBIS and eye AF. Especially animal Eye AF. It's amazing.

Given the rumoured specs, I'd like to slap this on Fuji's face. Fuji! This is how you make an affordable camera. Same evf resolution (magnification?) as R6, 14fps, new sensor. We still don't know for how much the m50 II will retail. The Fuji with its crappy evf from 2013 will cost 1000$. Ibis? Oh dear. Sure it costs a bit to put it there. If it's a camera meant for videographers, why bother put a crappy evf on it.
Specs are good. Sadly i don't expect any new lenses. Seems like 1 M lens every 2 years is all Canon wants to do.
Also, i got an M10 and just found out it does not have a BULB mode (!). That was quite shocking as you would not think any camera today would miss that basic feature.
Many use Sigma lenses. They work very well on the M50, especially that Sigma 16mm 1.4

As a Canon fanboy, I also hold a "M series" fanboy card. I was "burned" by Sony and the a6300, but man the kit lens was much better. and their 18-105 f/4, one of my favorite lenses. Like everyone else I do wish Canon would design a few more lenses around the mSeries. Something I can pair with the camera's small size, as it's the perfect camera for travel, maybe a few more primes in the same vein as the 22mm f/2. That said I will be pre-ordering the m50 mkII as soon as it's announced. :)

If it can't do everything my 700D can do, then no deal for me. I would like to see a cable release port on the M50 mkII, more M telephotos lenses for the portability and animal eye AF would be awesome.

Does the M50 feel awkward with the EF adapter with telephoto lenses? I have the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM.

I'd wait and see how good the animal AF would be (if it does get it) before I order. Otherwise I'm pretty happy with my M50 as I don't use it much for action and video, only for traveling.

I do wish to get more lenses though, a faster kit lens as well as faster 18-150mm and 55-200mm, and a 56mm.
