[Canon.ca] Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS M without Tripod ($50.99)

This adapter lets you use EF lenses on Canon M mount cameras. This gives you a lot more lens options to choose from and the lenses will function the same as native M lenses (autofocus and image stabilization will work). This will work on the Canon M6, M6 Mark II, M50, M3, M100, M200, and M10.

I think this is probably a price error. The version with the tripod is $199.99 and the only difference is that it comes with a little tripod piece underneath the adapter so that you could balance the camera and lens on a flat surface. I don't think I would ever use the tripod attachment if I had one.

I ordered this from Canon over the weekend and it arrived today via Purolator (free shipping). I almost bought one of these from Henry's this weekend, but they were sold out. I was about to go get one from Canada Computers, but then I found the version without the tripod on the Canon website for a quarter of the price! Works perfectly with my EF lenses on my M6 Mark II.

Yes, you can use it on your M50 to mount EF lenses (the lenses made for Canon DSLR cameras). You can use both Canon DSLR crop sensor lenses and Canon DSLR full frame lenses.

For example, with this adapter, you could use the popular Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM

There aren't many lenses available for the M mount. So this adapter opens up a lot of other options.

Nice find OP, ordered. This is on par with the price of 3rd party adapters on Amazon.

While it's a "dumb" adapter (no active electronics - just a mount and some connecting wires), I do find that the Amazon one I had produced some light artifacts in certain situations, so looking forward to using the OEM one.

Kind of depends on what type of photography you want to do. Or if you want a lens that is good for video, or good for both.

The obvious answer is to get the 50mm f/1.8:
https://www.amazon.ca/Canon-50mm-Normal ... 288&sr=8-3

Or the knock off version for half the price:
https://www.amazon.ca/YONGNUO-YN50mm-St ... 24&sr=8-18

That lens is good for portraits and will be much better in low light than your current lens. It just doesn't zoom in or out obviously.

There are also some good M lenses that you might want to consider. In general, the M lenses are smaller than the EF equivalent and you don't need the adapter obviously. The EF-M 22mm f/2 lens is good because it's really small and has a pretty fast aperture and isn't crazy expensive ($300). The 32mm f/1.4 is amazing, but it's $630. The 11-22mm is a good wide angle to consider, but it's pretty expensive ($500) and doesn't have a low aperture. The 55-200 would be good if you need a zoom lens (like to take pictures of your kids playing soccer or your dog at the dog park)... but again, kind of expensive at around $500 also.

With EF lenses, there are a lot of used ones for sale at good prices. Lots of people switch to full-frame or switch to Sony and then sell all their EF lenses used. The 55-250mm is under $200 which is a lot cheaper than the zoom lens for the M and there probably isn't much difference in quality. The EF wide angle 10-18 lens is good and is $300 which is quite a bit cheaper than the EF-M 11-22. Wide angle lenses are good for landscapes and real estate and video. There is a good 60mm f/2.8 macro lens if you want to do macro photography and it's $500 new, but I've seen them go for $300 on kijiji. So that's a cheap way to go if you want to do macro photography.

The adaptor is for mirrorless cameras when you want to use regular dslr lenses. You don't need it @Tibbs

This is to put EF and EF-S lenses on an M mount. You don't want to (and can't) use M lenses anyways.
