The negatives were either inconsequential to me or not confirmed by other reviewers. In fact, it was interesting to me how many professional and serious photographers own and regularly use an M50 for personal use. Video comparison reviews for this class of camera usually used the M50 for their standard of comparison.
Because it's such a popular digital camera, pricing for it is very competitive. Another plus! I was able to get the camera plus a used Canon EF-M 55–200mm f/4.5−6.3 IS STM lens and two extra batteries and stay within my budget. I'll be looking into a macro lens in the future.
It's a kit, so it comes with a battery, charger, and Canon EF-M 15–45mm f/3.5−6.3 IS STM lens. I don't really know what all that lens stuff means, but I'm ready to learn!
So, now I need recommendations for a good free online beginners photography course. Any suggestions?
