  • Phil, A couple of years ago Ann and I spent a month in Scotland, my long lens was the EF 70-200 f/4L IS.  I was delighted with it but occasionally would have liked something longer. Last summer we ...
  • I had my M (1) converted by Life Pixel (720nm if I remember correctly) and I love it. Definite hot spots with the EF-M 11-22 but the EF-M 18-55 and EF-M 22 work a treat. Twice I've been confronted ...
  • You've made som good points...I have seen some Metabones reviews ( The Camera Store for example) that show the Meatbones Speedbooster apparently not having the edge problem I've encountered with ...
  • The obvious solution, although it might not suit your particular shooting preferences, would be either M (manual) mode or Tv (shutter priority). JD
  • I'd say you're spot on.  However, I see no advantage to using a speedbooster on telephoto lenses. And I found the quality loss with wide angles is disappointing.  I may, some day just for fun, rent ...
  • I'll give it a shot over the weekend...but if I'm unsuccessful, trust me, it's bad. JD
  • Most welcomed...several other reports had mentioned some edge softness, but it was much worse than I expected/hoped for. Definitely a deal breaker. But ordering off of Amazon with very convenient ...
  • Mode 1 dampens out movement in both a vertical and horizontal direction. Mode 2 allows you to pan horizontally without the IS "fighting" you. JD
  • Created discussion thread Viltrox EF-M2 speed booster...
    Hi All, I've been following all the threads, watching reviews etc., in the hopes that this would indeed be an alternative to the Metabones. Ordered one from Amazon, arrived yesterday, and today I ...
  • Yes, please...that would be very helpful. JD
  • My experience with Wasabi batteries has been very positive.  Good battery life and relatively quick charging, but as noted by others, the camera won't report the degree of charge. I buy them on ...
  • That was certainly the case with some flowers and some film stock.  I'd assume it's still relevant today...although it seems less so. The OP grossly underexposed this image, and I suspect that's ...
  • I'm using the Samyang/Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 with great results.  Manual focus isn't a big deal, it's compact, native EF-M mount and the version I got is nice and sharp. I like it for landscapes and ...
  • Hand-held or on tripod? If tripod was used, make sure to turn off IS. That's the only suggestion I can come up with...got to be frustrating! Maybe a trip to Canon service is in order? Let us know ...
  • I had the original, not the XP version, of the Samyang/Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 and while it was OK I never warmed up to it. Sold it and bought the Irix Fire Fly 15mm f/2.4 and I love it.  Mine was good ...
  • I faced the same question when I bought my M5.  Solved it by keeping the M3 as a back up.  Ann uses it when she wants something more than her cell phone. And I had the M (1) converted to IR by Life ...
  • Replied in No
    As far as drop in filters are concerned there's really no need as all the M lenses take small filters to begin with. So I think that would be a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. JD
  • I just confirmed that Canon does indeed service the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM.  They also list them on the Canon refurbished site. Now I've really got something to think about. JD
  • I tried the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 yesterday at the local shop and was surprised how well it balanced on my M-5 in spite of its size. I was ready to ignore it a first glance but once on the camera it ...
  • You are of course totally correct about MFA on mirrorless cameras.  I typed that response without benefit of my second cup of coffee. Thanks for clarifying that for everyone's benefit.  ;-) JD
