This is less expensive than purchasing the body alone. This comes with the kit lens and EF-EOS M lens adapter. Good 1080p for vlogging (flip out screen) and has 4K but no dual pixel autofocus while using 4K. Available for shipping or in store pickup where in stock.

G85 is nice but micro 4/3rds. Autofocus not as good either since it's only contrast detect autofocus. Video is kinda soft on the Canon though. Vlog? Go Canon. Sharp, cinematic? Go Panasonic. Oh, the Canon will stop filming after 30 minutes and the Panasonic won't. Not sure if that's important to you.

If you are doing both photo and video (or even a beginner, canon is more beginner friendly) i'd recommend getting this m50 with the adapter because you can get cheaper EF mount lenses and they'll work perfectly on this body, and when it's time for an upgrade you can just take all your EF lenses to a new body. if you're doing only video with the camera i'd take the g85 because the g85 has IBIS and overall imo panasonic mirrorless is way better than canon mirrorless for video. and you will be able to upgrade to a gh5s down the line.

Just to point out if anybody is interested that this camera's 4k is 2.56x crop so basically 18mm wide angle lens goes to 46mm. You don't want that because it narrows your video significantly

Narrow means it doesn't record 4k, right?

Thanks OP! I've been considering the Canon EOS M50 since it's been released. Also considered Panasonic and Sony mirrorless, especially as Canon has been slow to make competitive mirrorless cameras, but I think this will a good fit for those that are carrying Canon EF lenses. Too bad the M50 doesn't have sensor stabilization like the Panasonic G85.

As others have mentioned, if you're planning to do 4K on the M50 there's a couple big caveats:
- dual pixel AF is not present for 4K, only phase detect (not as good)
- crop factor on 4k is heavy

I have an m50 and love it - especially since I'm carrying a bag of Canon glass already. With the lens adapter, I was able to drop the weight/size and start enjoying the benefits right away. This is a fantastic camera for photography - unmatched.

For video, it's a little more of a mixed bag IF AND ONLY IF 4K is your thing. I don't do much 4K because it's HUGE and eats up the memory cards and drive storage too quickly. Because of that, it wasn't a big deal for me to deal with the crop for the few times I wanted to shoot 4K.

I had previously purchased this kit for the $899 + $50 lens adapter, so this represented a little over $200 return into my pocket by visiting my local Best Buy and getting a price adjustment... making the deal MUCH sweeter.

I had a G85 and while 4K is nice, you have to have a computer that can process those files. Even on a decent rig, my computer was lagging in Adobe Premiere. Also, the G85 has some serious focus issues with video... So, it's best to do manual focusing with that model. I haven't tried the M50, but this price doesn't seem too bad. You get a good lens and the adapter would be great to get you into some cheap EF glass. Best Buy has a good return policy, might as well take a chance and see how you like it! Given that it has a bigger sensor, I'm gonna assume picture quality is better or just as good as anything you'd get from a M43 sensor (the G85 did take solid stills, IMO.)
