  • I'm referring to the percentage within these Dpreview forums.  Lately I've doing more nosing around at contributors "gear lists" and have been surprised to find a larger than expected number of ...
  • Replied in No.....
    Sounds kinda like the EOS-M will turn out to be Canon's "Edsel".   A mistake.  Too bad, too.  With a few tweeks it could have been a successful little camera.  If I can keep from being ...
  • Replied in Yes.....
    Care to divulge your options? I think many followers of this thread would like to know what you're thinking.
  • Replied in BINGO!!
    I've had a Canon EF-S 40mm 2.8 lens on the "M" all this time.  But when I removed that lens, replacing it with a native "M" lens, all my usual menu topics reappeared. All of this started when I was ...
  • Under which menu heading should the "default setting" be found?  Is it called something other than "default" or "factory" settings?
  • Yes, I do own one.  But I'm currently having problems with getting all of the alleged menu items to show up on the cameras menus.  How does one return to factory (default) settings?  I can't even ...
  • I'll have to research the SP-100.  Thanks for the heads up.
  • I would have to agree that this sounds like a GREAT duo.
  • Thanks.  A good example of what I'm trying to gain by a reasonable manual focusing, is like trying to focus on a deer partially hidden by trees and brush.
  • Does Olympus make any sort of superzoom with like manual focusing operations?  I currently use a Canon SX50, but the manual focus operation is absolutely a waste of time.  To get a well focused ...
  • Does this mean you do get some sort of focus confirmation when using native "M" lenses?  I don't think so.
  • Unfortunately, there are decent alternatives to the SX50, for one who finds manual focusing an important feature.  HS50 EXR, for example?
  • I hate to even imagine the cost of this little number.  Is it just me, or are all of the newer cameras and lenses (the better quality gear)going off the charts (at least to my wallet) lately?
  • My Canon is in perfect condition.  Used mainly for shooting animals in my backyard.  Comes with everything as when new (in the box).  Looking for a Fuji HS50 in like condition.
  • I appreciate the feedback about the manual focusing on the Fuji HS50.  Now just one more question that could well put me into the Fuji camp.  How's the HS50's IQ?  Especially, as compared to other ...
  • When manually focusing on the Rebel cameras, when you hit proper focus, a white dot appears in the view finder, and the camera makes a beeping sound to confirm "in" focus. Concerning the prime lens ...
  • I've heard that the Fuji hs50 has a good and intuitive manual focus. Is this true. Other Fuji cameraswith longer focal length ( of 30X or longer)? I have experience with Canon's SX50.  But the ...
  • Nice job.  It shows that BIF can be done with the "M".  Might not be the absolute best tool for the job, but it is possible with some practice.  I'm encouraged by this,  Thanks.
  • Does the "M" have any sort of focus assist (white dot, or beep) like the Digital Rebel's have? And how do you feel about the balance of the 85mm and 100 macro lens (with adapter) on the "M's" ...
  • Created discussions Suggestions for prime lenses?
    This is a 2 prong question, actually.  What prime lenses seem to be the most common lenses (excluding the native 22mm f2)that the majority of EOS-M shooters use?  Then, of those lenses, which seem ...
