  • Replied in Update
    I was shooting at f/10.  The more you stop down the stronger the hot spot gets.  I hadn't noticed the hot spot until I stopped down.
  • Replied in Update
    For those thinking of doing the same thing that I did I want to pass along that the EOS-M 18-55 IS STM has an IR hot spot and it's fairly strong at f/10.  You'll need to plan on using the adapter ...
  • Big - yes Heavy - Not as heavy as carrying multiple primes Slow - 2.8 isn't slow especially with the high ISO performance of today's DSLR cameras.  Certainly not as fast as many primes but most ...
  • It's a bag full of primes without having to swap lenses.
  • You could do a little better selling it yourself but that's not a bad trade in price at all.  I would have thought that B&H would have been lower then that.
  • There are going to be a lot of people wondering the same thing.  With all the positive reports on how well it compares to the 100-400 there will be a lot of people jumping on the Tamron. What ...
  • Replied in Backordered
    That's because of the interest that this lens has been generating. Hype = higher price Now lets hope that the lens lives up to the hype!  Looking forward to you telling us what you think when you ...
  • It most likely is fungus despite what others have said.  As far as cleaning it goes just pay very close attention to where things go when you take it apart.  I took one lens partially apart to ...
  • Replied in Not worth it
    It's going to cost a lot more than $300 because I'm sure that Canon will insist on replacing the glass since fungus damages it. Even if it was only $300 for $300 more you can get one that's new or ...
  • Lots of "white box" 24-105's for sale.  Can easily get one for $600 so why repair the old one.  I'd be more concerned with why you've got that in one of your lenses and what about your other lenses.
  • You don't need IS primes for any of these shots.  This whole thread is bogus!  Learn how to use your 5d mkIII.  It can do much higher ISO without any problems and why in the world are you shooting ...
  • Replied in Which camera?
    What camera were you using?
  • I would not have bought an M if I didn't get it so cheap.  I bought it with the 18-55 lens for $299 from Amazon and also had some reward money from Amazon that dropped the price even more.  I ...
  • Replied in 590
    Yes they say it's the equivalent to the 590 filter.
  • Those artifacts are most likely due to my poor PS skills, I'm sure of it. I love the 15-85 but I think I'm going to use the kit lens and sell the 15-85 to help pay for the Tamron 150-600 when it ...
  • Yes it was and I find it much more fun to use then a DSLR that's been converted.  Of coarse I haven't used a converted DSLR in live view for infrared.  I find the controls of the M take some ...
  • Created discussions EOS-M infrared
    Had my M converted to super color IR.  The first one is straight out of the camera, the second is with the color channels swapped and the third is converted to B&W.  Not great at PS so I'm sure ...
  • Replied in You are right
    It's better then the 22 in low light depending on what you want.  In low light the larger the aperture on the 22 the less the DOF is.  The IS on the 18-55 allows slower shutter speeds while ...
  • What's your budget? New or used lenses? Do you want 3 lenses at once or build over time? Canon brand only or would you consider a top quality alternative?
  • Read a recent review and this lens is the sharpest 600mm lens hands down! See, I can do that too :)  No need for any links to back up what I've said. Every "review" that I've seen has been ...
