  • Created discussion thread EF-S 35mm f/2.8 macro IS...
    Anyone out there using this as a standard/walk around lens on an M series camera? I'm considering it over the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 because of the IS. Thanks in advance, JD
  • If by "native fov" you mean no crop factor, neither camera will do what you're asking. Both have a 1.6x crop factor, or APS-C sensors.  You'd have to go to a full frame camera to shoot in "native ...
  • "Diopter adjustment" is under the viewfinder window...;-) It's there, not easy to get to, or even find, but it's there. JD
  • Hank, Like you I really prefer a lens with IS, especially now that I have entered geezer hood.  You might also look at the EF 28mm f/2.8 IS.  I have this lens and like it a lot.  It balances nicely ...
  • Thanks Colin...that's what I suspected would be the case.  Guess I'll stick to Canon glass. I do wish we'd see some faster (f/2 or f/2.8) lenses for the M cameras.  I'm happy with the L glass I'm ...
  • Thanks...I guess that's what I needed to know. JD
  • Created discussion thread Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 on M-5
    A recent thread ask about the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 but, to me at least, it's size and weight seems a bit much. The Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 is a bit smaller and lighter and at least one review ...
  • Replied in 6D or Lens?
    Would you take your Rolls Royce to a mechanic who only had one adjustable spanner? Thought not!  :-| Get the 6D, she really should have a second body if she's shooting weddings. Or any one-time ...
  • There are a lot of "tutorials" on You Tube...many by photographers who are in desperate need of tutoring themselves.  It's an unfortunate fact of life on the internet. For some people self-taught ...
  • I'd suggest you spend some time with Darwin Wiggett's tutorials, you can find them  pretty easily on the web, on using T/S lenses.  His web site is: oopoomoo ...yeah really! The tutorials will ...
  • Just thought I'd share my findings... Bought a super clean one on Ebay, used by a wedding shooter so no harsh environments encountered, at a very reasonable price.  Came with the box and everything ...
  • There were two, might even have been three, mirror/cat lenses designed and built in the US of A.  They were designed for the space program, I have forgotten the designers but they were marketed as ...
  • I just returned home from six weeks in Alaska and the Yukon.  God..those places are vast! Used the EF 70-300L a lot of the time on my M-5.  I'd really recommend it over the USM lens. It replaced a ...
  • Hadn't considered the Samyang 50mm f/1.2 but love the 12mm.  Thanks for the suggestion...it's on my "look into it" list. JD
  • Why the 40mm? 'Cause I already have it. Actually I bought it to use on my full frame cameras and it works great on the Ms as well. Now that the EF-M 32mm has been introduced I'm certainly ...
  • Good suggestions...thanks.  I'm curious how you'll like the EF-M 32mm f/1.4.  It's a lens I have been considering,  Just wish it had IS.  Have thought about the EF 35mm f/2.0 IS a lot.  I also ...
  • Created discussion thread M cameras and prime lenses...
    OK, I got great answers/opinions on my 100 f/2.8L macro query, so I'll try to tax your brains again.  Basically, I'm not thrilled with the kit lenses on the M system so... Are any of you using your ...
  • Hi Paul... Do you have the 100L or the non-L?  My M-5 focuses fine with the non-L as long as the focus isn't from closest to farthest or vice versa. Also works better if you set the focus to ...
  • Very nice...Ann and I were there last month o0n our way home from Alaska and the smoke from 566 wildfires (yes...566!) burning in BC ruled out any grand landscapes.  Glad you had better skies. Did ...
