Expansion or Acceleration

From the last Sky at Night programme....

I am not a scientist but thought this should be considered - this is not a debate for me, just some ideas ' out of the box'.

1. Should we be treating the Hubble constant as a constant at all? By assuming the universe were to be accelerating in its rate of expansion would explain potentially the difference in the measured results using the different methods. In other ...

Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 15-45mm

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.

Thank you!
