About me:

Sold the Canon 7D and Mamiya 645. Considering what the next step will be.
Picked up a Canon M and later a Panny G6. Just sold the G6 and picked up the Nikon D5300. I found I missed a DSLR.

Once in a while I still pick up the surprisingly nice Canon SX230.

I still like to make large prints of landscapes and still life. Trying to decide on the next "real" camera. To me a photograph is only a photograph when it is printed. Just my take from an old timer. ;-)

It will take me forever just to pay for a couple of them.

Don't they mean Canon EF-S rather than EF?

So I guess that shutter shock on the D750 would be a non-issue with this lens......

lbpix: To me a camera without a viewfinder is as useful as a car without a steering wheel. However - different strokes for different folks I guess.

For the past several weeks the Sony a6000 has been $548 with the 16-50 lens. That is just about 10% more .

Skrocki: Canon is finally realizing their huge blunder. I bought the EOS-M3 with electronic viewfinder and all four EOSM lenses direct from Japan via e-bay when it was first released. It has proven to be a great little camera that produces stunning images. The 24 megapixel sensor is very good in low light. It does not directly compare to the Nikon J5 because the M3 sports an APC-C sized sensor (22.3 x 14.9 mm) vs the 1" sensor (13.2 x 8.8 mm) of the Nikon. The Canon EOS-M3 can also use the entire Canon lens lineup, so it serves as a back-up camera to those who already own Canon gear. 4K video at this point is just a gimmick.

The adapter works fine in my experience with the original M and several Canon lenses.

Don Karner: Why do we mess up photos on purpose?

Is is called style? Or what?

Thanks for your thoughtful reply. I always try to visualize in B&W when shooting. I know that shooting with a pinhole or Holga does change the image capture process (and thought process). But sometimes I wonder why we do it when the general public seems to just want everything in focus and in saturated color...... ;-)

itsastickup: It's a beautiful camera.

However:

Show me the bokeh, show me the bokeh, show me the bokeh!!!

And not at $900, FFS. These clowns won't crack mirroless until they realise that the common man wants everything but his kid's face out of focus. And he gets it from APS-C for less than $200

In my experience, the common man and woman want to see everything in the picture in focus. Only us photographers enjoy creamy out-of-focus areas.
