Ali's recent activity

  • I rented the SL1 once to use alongside the 5D3 as a second camera.  I thought it pretty good; small and capable. However, it is considerably larger than an M; so for those who get the M primarily ...
  • Haven't seen any indication that it won't work. There hasn't been an update to the adapter since the original M.
  • I got the M3 to pair with my 5D3, and it was a great pairing --- the M3 went places I wouldn't consider taking or couldn't take the 5D3, such as rock concerts.  (The plastic 18-55 and 55-200mm ...
  • Replied in It's simply...
    In that case, agreed. But the hope was that you would get Touch & Drag AF when you have the external EVF attached to the M6. The user manual also seems to confirm that there's no Touch & Drag AF on ...
  • Thanks for posting --- I, at least, hadn't seen this before. Sadly I see no mention of Touch & Drag AF, so I suppose this confirms the feature isn't on the M6. Ali

    Lucky you, getting to play with the two side by side! That's a nice opportunity... interesting to hear that the new EVF feels small. Too bad you didn't get a chance to look into touch drag focus. R ...
  • One more thing worth mentioning in the context of the M3:  The large autofocus box is not a great match for larger apertures of the 50mm f/1.2 where the DOF is tiny. So sometimes the f/1.4 or ...
  • Sorry, not answering exactly the question, but it works well with an M3.   Downsides are it's a little too big for the body, and autofocus isn't super fast.  Both may be less of issues on an M5. So ...
  • You're right, at F11, you should be seeing plenty DOF for landscapes. It would be interesting to see the shutter speed of the photos.
  • Some sample images from your outing would help better answer your questions.   Since these are landscape photos, doesn't sound like the issue is with AF, unless you were using very small DOF. Proba ...
  • Replied in M6 or M5
    I'm likely going for the M6, mainly due to the size. I have the M3, and it's small, but at the limits of what I can carry in a jacket pocket. Anything larger is getting too large for my purposes. T ...
  • If each image is 22-29MB, then 100 of them would be 2200-2900MB, which is around 2.5GB... No? Ali
  • I second the recommendation for the M-series; I find my M3 to be a great counterpart to my 5D4. The newly announced M6 has a retro look in silver (but it's not truly as retro as the Fuji, which has ...
  • I also haven't been using the GPS.  Wifi is occasionally useful, but the M5 has that too. Ali
  • Since size of the M series is an important factor for me, the two most common lenses on my M3 (don't have an M5) are the 18-55 and a lens people don't talk much about, Tamron EF-M 18-200. ...
  • To me 5DS + M6 makes a more compelling pairing than 5DS + 80D.  And yes, M6 is likely a good replacement for the Olympus as well. Ali
  • In the case of those two cameras, seems to be so: X-T20: 118 x 83 x 41 mm (4.65 x 3.27 x 1.61″) M5: 116 x 89 x 61 mm (4.57 x 3.5 x 2.4″) M5 is a little less wide, a little taller, and much deeper. Ali
  • That is the purpose of that website, so, yes, hopefully correct! Ali
  • To me one of the most important things about the M is the size; I want a smaller camera to complement the 5D4.  I have a M3 right now, and will likely upgrade to M6 (rather than M5) due to size ...
  • Not at all --- just by buying the adapter I now can use all my EF lenses on the M. I am likely to want to use EF-M lenses for light travel, but when needed it's pretty great to be able to attach a ...
