You said you are new to this...  so you don't own any lenses, etc?

 

 

You should really be doing your own research...  we can only speculate on the intended use, your preference and what type of photographer you are from 2 sentences. 

 

The number of lenses available for the M50 is small in comparison to the 80D

 

Comparison

 

You'll take more shots per charge with a 80D.  I'd do the 80D because I use my camera primarily for still photography and want the flexibility of more lenses.  I'm willing to carry equiment because I want the best tool for the shot.  This might be at the expense of comfort.

 

You might want to pull your camera out a take a few shots, then put it away.. not want to carry or lug around equipment and if thats the case, the M50 would be a better choice. 

 

As you can see, there isn't an easy way for us to decie for you.

Easy, very easy.  The Rebel T7i every time. Not even a choice. Who knows how long M will be around?

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, along with less other stuff.

Ernie,

Good one of us was wearing his glasses...  I saw 80D  ..  not 800D.  My bad guys.
