  • Well, the reviews I've read state otherwise, they state that the YN lenses are equal or better than the Canon originals, someone said the YN 50/1.8 is somewhat less sharp in the middle but ...
  • For portraits with very shallow DOF and nice bokeh. I just need it to be sharp in the middle, the corners I don't care about, they will be out of focus anyway. Wouldn't the Canon or Yongnuo ...
  • Thanks for the advice. I don't know anything about either Petapixel or Lenstip so this is useful information. Maybe I'll pass on Yongnuo then. It is so tempting when it is so cheap :-) but if the ...
  • Yeah I saw that review too. But this review states otherwise... either way, the cost is so small it could be worth it anyway :-) Change DOT to . in the link below. http://petapixelDOTcom/2015/06/01 ...
  • Don't forget there are also some cheap chinese copies :-) There's the Yongnuo 35mm/f2, which is a copy of the old discontinued Canon 35mm/f2. You can get it for about $100: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ ...
  • Sorry I lost you a little there. You mean that you use the EF 50mm/f1.4 for everything? ...and my question was, does anyone know where to buy this 50mm/f1.4 lens?
  • Created discussions Yongnuo 50mm/f1.4
    Yongnuo has made some decent, super-cheap copies of the 50mm/f1.8 and 35mm/f2.0. There is supposed to be a 50mm/f1.4 copy as well, but I can't find it anywhere. Maybe it hasn't been released? Does ...
  • Wow! You have to give us an update on this - what happened?? What is a toy gun? Did you call the police?
  • Replied in Lens cap hood
    So I got this one today... seems pretty nice, although it does add a significant amout of bulk to this small camera. But nice to always carry the hood and be ready to shoot in a second :-) EOS M + ...
  • I didn't know there was a new version, thanks :-)
  • The Meike adapter does not look like the Canon one, does it? My idea, since the adapter is so cheap, is to have one  adapter always fitted to one lens, since I only have one EOS M and no DSLR. And ...
  • What do you mean with "new" 50? Do you mean the EF 50mm/f1.8 II? If so, yes, I have that one and use it with EOS M. I think it is an excellent lens for portraits and close-ups of my kids, MUCH ...
  • Nice one. I´ve also done some experimenting with macro extension tubes. My experience is that the depth of field is REALLY narrow, so it is really hard to find the focus. I think it is easiest to ...
  • Thats really cheap. But ships only within US, right? There are REALLY cheap 3rd party adaptors for $10 with worldwide shipping... I don´t know the quality but just sayin´.... http://www.ebay.com/it ...
  • Just to be over explicit: you put the camera in continuous mode, but use it to take single shots. For some reason, with that setting, the shot-to-shot time is A LOT faster than in singe shot mode, ...
  • Replied in Lens cap hood
    Thanks for your reply! I ordered one anyway (for the 22mm lens) so let´s see how it works :-) I always want to carry as little as possible, so to have lens cap and hood in one thing seemed like a ...
  • Thanks so much for that list! Wow, there are actually a LOT of lenses! The HandeVision 40mm 0.85 would be a wet dream for me... too bad it costs more than my car.
  • Thanks for your reply. You´re right, there´s a lot of adapters, and with an adapter your list of available lenses gets a lot longer... I have the EF to EF-M adapter that I use with the EF ...
  • Thanks a lot for this list! This was exactly what I was looking for. I remember reading something about a chinese lens with a wide aperture, but maybe that was with an adapter...
  • I know there are some third pary (non-Canon) lenses for EOS M out there, but I cannot find a list anywhere. Is there such a list, or can we make one here?
