Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 15-45mm

9 months 2 weeks ago #623275 by Jill Pomeroy
I've been shopping around for a good deal on one of these M50's from Canon.  Most of the kits have this 15-45mm lens.  How is this lens?  

Is it one that I'll likely keep?  If so, then I'll keep looking at kits.  If garbage lens, then I'll stick with the body only.

Ehhh, not much for that lens, do you want something wide?  Then try the 11-22mm from Canon

Fly-by-wire design (now common practice for mirrorless kit zooms) so not ideal for manual focus.  Soft wide open, so not a top choice for low light.  I would pass, but "body only" still may not be a nice price.  You could always sell it off later.

IMO: Never get a lens you don't want just to sell it later. You'll never recover your investment. Just sayin'.
