    Maybe the 4th downsizing in my (photography part of) life :)

    phase 1: heavy cams like Canon EF, F1 & 20D, 40D
    (20...45 years old)
    phase 2 (CURRENT): plasticky but really good 600D
    200D M50 maybe EOS R
    (45 ... 60 yr)
    phase 3: G series
    (60 ... 70 yr hopefully)
    phase 4: Those one for all solutions with very
    acceptable IQ
    (70 yr ... EndOfLife)

    Elon Musk stated during the presentation of the first private moon passenger that we do not speak enough about having fun - late but now the fun with photographing is increasing with lighter simpler cameras like M50 at the moment!

    Yes. I found more interesting of being able to use easily different cameras in different situations - as I see fit - with a common UI than being obsessed by spec sheet bullet while comparing them to other cameras...

    Never discount the utility of 'seamlessly' being able to go (i.e. USE) from one camera model to another. If one's photographic equipment and shooting style warrants different models, how beneficial is it to be able to go from the Pro version to a small, compact, "travel/hiking" model and not have to fumble around learning it...
