Canon's bestselling camera just leveled up: meet the Canon EOS R50

Canon EOS R50

The Canon EOS R50 is here, effectively folding Canon's bestselling (and brilliant) EOS M50 into the R system while adding some of the stunning upgrades only made possible on RF-mount cameras. 

As you might expect, the Canon EOS R50 in many ways takes the Canon EOS M50 / Canon EOS M50 Mark II and adds the RF mount. So you get essentially the same teeny tiny body that was the M50's calling card, but now you get to use the best Canon RF lenses – a list that dwarfs the number of available EF-M optics (and you can, of course, adapt your EF DSLR glass as well).
