Test shot with the M6 Mark II
12

So it finally arrived a few hours ago and so I done a quick test shot of the dog with the Viltrox Speedbooster and Tamron 24-70 G2 at F2.  Going to have lots of fun with this.

Hey Congrats and Enjoy

I`d stick to the Canon M Converter and F2.8 - not sure I`d trust the speedbooster optics in a "Viltrox" - odd green cast and heavy blowout in an image where I`d not expect one though, neither are traits of the M6-II or Ms in general  . cute pup .

Yes completely agree with you there, I have got the M converter as yet but will definitely be buying one.

I got mine used for £70 to the door with the tripod mount there are a few kicking about in the various shops (LCE, WEX, MPB etc)

Here`s one

Thanks for that, one of my friends swears by the Meike version which he has got on both his M5 & M6 II, he says it is just as good as the official  Canon one, but at a fraction of the price.

MY issue with Shonky stuff is that your particular one doesn`t have to be far out in depth or cockeyed much to cause decentering or other issues such as badly made contacts which could damage the connector in the camera etc - you`ve just ploughed a lot into a very nice camera and have good DSLR glass, why risk it for the sake of £30 or so saved on a meike over a used Canon ? -

You could of course get the Meike from Amazon and return it if its out or cockeyed and grab a used canon, I didn`t  bother for £30-£40 diff though even for my humble M100 and just got a used Canon

Re: Test shot with the M6 Mark II

I use the same combination of cam, speedbooster an lens. And i'm satisfied with it.

I use a color checker as reference in my RAW workflow, so i don't have any issues with the colors.

But in terms of sharpness i would not recommend to use this viltrox with a wide angle lens.

24 mm is ok for me, as the M6 MarkII has a crop factor of 1.6 wich leaves a small margin around the sensor due to the viltrox' 0.71 factor.

For me the biggest concern with this particular adapter is the power consumption.

But i will make a new thread for that.

Re: Test shot with the M6 Mark II

I have the Canon and Meike adapters, the main different I have noticed is the Meike is a bit bigger because it has a tripod mount on it.  But then that is the way I wanted it, the smaller canon adapter for when I am just handholding lenses and the Meike for when I want to put the camera with a heavy lens on a tripod.

agree. Poor color and blown highlight on the head. Was there sun on the dog’s head?

I`d not expect one though, neither are traits of the M6-II or Ms in general . cute pup .
