    Long story short. Way back in the old days I shot a LOT of film, mostly B&W. Took a stroll through digital, and for very complicated reasons, had to give that up.

    I just bought Canon's entry level M50 with 15-45mm lens. Just reading the manual tonight. I do plan on purchasing one more "decent" level zoom, but am not going to spend a fortune on lenses, until I feel fully proficient with what I have.

    Any experience with this camera? Critiques? Pro or Con, that may save me $$ on aspirin. The only "top shelf" stuff I bought was a 3 filter set, because one of my biggest uses is for ocean fishing around the FL Keys, and local lakes where glare off of the chop have cost me photo's of some real trophy quality fish. Caveat: All of my "trophy" fishing is catch and release including sharks, sawfish and other large creatures. None are harmed, and the only thing I keep is a small eating fish or two, thus the importance of the photo. One of my lens filters is a polarized filter, so that should help.

    Any thing else you might think of will be a great help and appreciated.

    Thanks,
    J.

    Can't comment on the M50 but any modern digital camera should be able to achieve good results under most conditions. Kudos for reading the manual! I have found that good glass is more important than the body so when you are ready to get the lens, get the very best you can afford for the type of photos you shoot. Your lens will last through several bodies.
