Dustin Abbott posted his comprehensive EOS R50 review. From hos conclusion:

[given the price] the Canon EOS R50 will almost certainly sell well for Canon because it offers a reasonable amount of quality features for the very low price point. The only cheaper APS-C mirrorless camera is the Canon R100, and that camera comes without the articulating LCD screen and has an older focus system.

You’ll want to either have relatively small hands or else a strong desire for a compact camera, but, if that’s the case, you’ll enjoy having a decent viewfinder and an excellent touchscreen in such a compact camera. The autofocus system is very robust for this class of camera, which definitely ups the fun factor.

The biggest reason to hesitate on purchasing the Canon EOS R50 is the utter lack of native lenses available for it. Canon needs to demonstrate that they are going to support the RF-S mount in a way far better than their failure to support the EF-M mount. The current state of the EOS R system is that I really like and enjoying using many of the cameras, but I’m frustrated by the policies regarding lenses.
