Buying a new camera system is just about that – the system. It’s all well and good getting a great body but, if it doesn’t have the lenses you need, it’s not going to do what you want it to. So if you want to make a Wise Buy, you need to consider the optics as well as the camera.

There are some great crop-sensor systems that offer you compact size without compromising quality, from Micro Four Thirds cameras like the Olympus PEN E-P7 to APS-C bodies like the Fujifilm X-T30. If you want a portable powerhouse that can even use your existing DSLR lenses, though, look no further than the Canon EOS M50 II with the Canon EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM.
