  • I was in the same boat when I moved from APS-C to FF, and I loved doing it. All your lenses suddenly become wider, and you see more of the world. The RP represents excellent value for what you get, ...
  • Vignetting causes corners to be darker than the center, and the effect is worse when the aperture is larger. In the samples you saw, as the aperture is reduced the shutter speed or iso are likely ...
  • Nice mock-up! To me the strength of the M series is the size; the M6 is the largest M I'd like to carry around. I'd enjoy having a built-in EVF, but not if it makes the camera any larger.  (The ...
  • I wasn't saying "2mm, that's impossible!"  It may not be practical, but my thought is that theoretically it's not impossible, right?
  • There's that 2mm in there!  What does it take to make a 2mm adaptor? :-)
  • Agreed - new bodies is important. As far as lenses, would love a fast zoom (15-45 f/2.8?) and a longer zoom (15-300 would be a nice range, or EF-M equivalent of Tamron's 18-400).
  • Bit of chicken and egg of course. At some point they need to have a new M so we will buy it.
  • I haven’t seen this posted yet: https://www.canonnews.com/cp-interview-with-canon-ef-m-continues-and-ibis-is-coming-sometime Canon: “So yes, we have the M mount and also the RF mount launched last ...
  • 15-45 is a useful range, but my copy of 15-45 is not that good (compared to my 18-55 and pretty much all other EF-M lenses), so I rarely reach for it. How important is that 3mm in the wide end? Of ...
  • The point is that the jpeg that came out of the camera has those posterized clouds and the cyan sky; and I can’t do much to fix it. Especially the posterization of the clouds. But the raw file ...
  • Agreed that in my very short experience with the camera the JPEGs look very good. I do however like to have the RAW as insurance in case of that one important but overblown or under exposed shot... ...
  • No matter what they do, my number one wish is that they keep it the same size or smaller, and leave all the physical dials on. I appreciate the physical dials. As far as new features: - better AF: ...
  • Nice! I was also wondering about the custom settings. I set them to 400 and 1600 ISO since changing ISO seems to be a little involved otherwise... But just got the camera, so don’t know if I’ll ...
  • Indeed, there seems to be a heavy sharpening in the JPEG I also see posterization of the clouds and a more cyan cast to the sky in the JPEG... I haven't tried it yet!
  • Created discussion thread TG-5 RAW, useful or not?
    Just got the TG-5; one of the reasons I chose it over the alternatives was the RAW support. I was wondering whether it made a difference, and it seems that in some cases, yes, it does. I think ...
  • Another vote for the 32mm over the 22mm, if you were choosing one.  It will give you better bokeh and the 1.4 will enable lower light.  The 22 will of course allow somewhat wider shots, but I just ...
  • Replied in Google...
    Officer of the Guard?  :)
  • I too sometimes unintentionally change the ISO via the dial when changing the exposure compensation.  But it's often just the next setting - ISO 3200 to 2500 say.  Luckily I never had it go to 25,600.
  • Replied in Got cold feet :(
    Ordered literally within minutes of the announcement, but then got cold feet and cancelled two days ago.  Sigh.  At least someone else in line will get the one I didn't! I was thinking I'd use it ...
  • Now that folks are getting the RP in hand, I am curious about this question. Looking thru the manual, I could not find confirmation of KR's claim on how to get a small focus box. My question ...
