  • Which primes do you mean? I have the 22 and 32, the 22 is very small but still excellent, the 32 is about the same size as the 18-55 zoom. The Canon version is actually smaller than the 3rd party ...
  • Sounds like you already have a G85 and an M6, which will effectively be the same as an M50. Why don't you test them out? Blur (assuming you mean motion blur) has a lot to do with shutter speed and ...
  • Replied in M Trinity
    Not sure a 2.8 zoom on this sensor is great for indoor events tbh. I recently added a Sigma 17-50 2.8 thinking that despite its bulk it would give me more versatility with indoor lower light ...
  • As an update on this... I just realized the Sigma 30mm 1.4 is actually listed on eBay as a brand new lens for the exact same price Canon quoted me to repair my lens ($289)... I might end up buying ...
  • LOL! I've dropped every camera I've owned, probably multiple times, including my M6. Luckily this is the first time any of them have had any sort of mechanical damage. It's annoying, but by the ...
  • I ended up registering it and trying to get a quote, $289 for a damaged focus motor. Anyway, I guess I'll just keep using it as-is given that the cost of the lens new on eBay is really just $150 ...
  • Created discussion thread 32mm lens dropped
    I've now dropped just about every lens I've owned for my M6, and the body a few times as well. Anyway, thus far I've been lucky in that nothing more serious than cosmetic damage (and a dented ...
  • I sold the camera a couple years ago so I can't quite remember, but I most likely just unscrewed a bunch of the small screws around the body and pulled apart what I could without forcing anything.
  • For what it's worth, I recently picked up a Sigma 17-50 2.8 that I've been using on my M6. I largely agree with the OP in that it is big, heavy, unwieldy, and isn't as useful for indoor photos as ...
  • I don't have a Pixel or a G5X, but I do have an iphone 11 pro and an M6. I often prefer the way my phone handles white balance and high contrast scenes over my camera when you look at the SOOC ...
  • Oops! It is the 17-50 2.8, I misstated the focal range. I'd read that it does have focus issues with DSLRs when shot using the OVF, but in live view mode as it'd be used on my M6 it is apparently ...
  • One question that's relevant to whether your kit lens is sufficient is, how are these photos going to be viewed? Are these going to be used in social media ads where the image will be relatively ...
  • Created discussion thread Sigma 17-40 2.8
    So I've had my M6 for going on 3 years now and I love it. I've got the 22mm and 32mm Canon primes that live on the body for 98% of my shooting, but I've been craving something wider for landscape ...
