I am new to this site and I wanted some input on two digital pianos. This will be my first real digital piano with weighted keys. I don't know which one to get either the Kawai es6 ot the korg M50. I have tried both I liked them. They both have the hammered action i'm looking for. The Korg has the RH3 action hammered and the Kawai has the AHA-IV F action key. What do you guys recommend?

I would definitely go with the Kawai. Kawai has really nice feeling actions. The sound on a korg sound really "digital" and "electric, if you know what I mean. the Kawai sounds more realistic.

I would also go with the Kawai. But did you consider the newer ES7 too? It is a great piano that you might want to take a closer look at too if that would fit into your budget. Here is a thread that talks about ES6 and ES7:
