  • People reporting actual, verified issues with Sigma lenses are now doom sayers?  Do you suggest we all stick our collective heads in the sand and let people buy Sigma lenses and get surprised when ...
  • I think the bad part of this approach is that anyone wanting a capable native lens catalog similar to Fuji of MFT will never see it from Canon.  IMO, this negates much of the reason to have a ...
  • I think Canon would like to put out a FF MILC that is on par with the A7/3 but I don't think they can.  They likely don't have the R&D behind them to allow it.  The A7/3 is Sony's third version ...
  • I think the EOS M system is going the way of what Canon has done with the ASP-C DSLR line and the EF-S mount. It has taken 15 years to get the EF-S lenses we have today, which aren't all that ...
  • Replied in Look into a 6D
    If the price of the 6D2 is good for you then buy it. The image quality is thff e same but the 6D2 has some very useful features and a bit more resolution.
  • IMO, the EF-S 10-18mm is your best choice.  To take full advantage of the DPAF auto focus of the 200D you need a STM or Nano focus lens.  Otherwise you will likely get jerky, hunting AF instead of ...

  • Replied in Look into a 6D
    I would recommend finding a good condition used 6D for $700-$800 or a refurbished one on Canon's website .  I have had a 6D for a few years and it is a wonderful camera and would be a fantastic, ...
  • Thanks for the clarification.  I think IS is the best choice for shooting static subjects and a wider aperture is best for moving subjects.  It seems that the OP was more interested in static ...
  • I don't necessarily agree with you on this. AF performance is a very important function for a lens.  At least with the Canon EF-S 17-55mm you know it will focus lightening fast and not have ...
  • I think they developed the M system specifically for people like you and I.  That is those that have Canon gear where the adapter is very useful.  A person without Canon gear will find it limiting ...
  • Then how does the sensor read information that is sent to the EVF and LCD screen (live view for a DSLR) for a MILC camera? If the sensor is covered then it can't read anything. When I take a lens ...
  • If you want to expand the discussion, feel free.  Lenses are pretty much bullet proof unless they are damaged.  However, I don't quite understand why they need brought into a discussion regarding ...
  • Canon lenses sell more cameras than their cameras sell lenses.  Glass has been a strong point for Canon since EF lenses came about. FUJI, Panasonic, Olympus and Sony all combine IBIS and lens ...
  • He did use a Nikon D70 for a long time until it died.  Then he just never continued with any dedicated camera again.  I did talk him into buying a Sony wide range P&S and I don't think he ever ...
  • It can be a large part of your Canon outfit.  I assume you have other Canon gear no related to the EOS M system specifically.  If a person was looking into a system from scratch and wants to keep ...
  • You definitely have a point regarding IBIS.  I believe Olympus and Panasonic have the longest track record with it for mass produced cameras.  I do not recall there being any major issues with it ...
  • Actually, you are talking about lenses , not camera bodies.  I am not sure what your point is here since DSLRs and MILCs use lenses of the same design. Yet every one of them will ultimately fail ...
  • I think most would agree that the most repaired items in a DSLR is the shutter and mirror.  There is no reason to expect a PCB in a DSLR is any more, or less, durable than one put into a MILC.  ...
  • I think all the cameras in consideration come under the ILC label as well.  It makes sense to include MFT in the mix with APS-C for this reason.  Also, the crop factor between them isn't drastic ...
