  • And, I would add, all of this capability is available to us for reasonable prices! There's a lot of opportunities in this list of lenses for many years of photography enjoyment.
  • I agree with R2 on this. And I personally would likely not buy the fast standard zoom even if it was available. Instead I use the Sigma 18-35mmf1.8 and an adapted nifty-fifty, soon to be replaced ...
  • Yes, you are thinking too hard about this.  For the immediate future, I wouldn't consider upgrade issues at this point.  Enjoy the new camera and learn the craft.  When you get to the point of ...
  • Same here.  The one I'm using came with a phone. Also works well with the Canon Web Camera Utility.
  • Typically I use a slower (smaller) aperture in the situation you describe (long-exposure landscapes on a tripod), so having f2.8 would not be a factor driving my decision.  Is there another use ...
  • My apologies if I was too free with my critiques!  My intent was to help, not discourage. And I fully agree with R2:  shoot at every opportunity, and enjoy the time you spend with the hobby. As you ...
  • Thanks for the info, I'll look into it. No, my 18-35 is one of the first generations.  I bought it as soon as it came out for use with my old T2i.
  • Oh, interesting... i can't recall if I used the dock to update it when I got the m6ii... i think maybe I did. Do you know if the update was specifically to address the focus issue with M cameras?
  • Yep.  This is what keeps me using the Sigma 18-35mm.  Then I add a fast 50-55mm for a more traditional portrait focal length.  And that pretty much covers my needs, except for the few times I do ...
  • Yep, same for me with my M6ii; it is the lens that sits on my camera most of the time.  It is admittedly heavy and big by comparison with the kit lenses, but I just can't part with the image quality. ...
  • Well, I'll attempt a few comments if you don't mind feedback from a hobbyist... This has real possibilities with the differing colors and spherical shapes contrasted with the linear forms of the ...
  • I used it with my M6ii and Zoom.  It has not worked with a couple of other apps I tried. The battery lasts about 2.5 hours.  I do 3-hour meetings at times, so this is inconvenient. -David
  • Replied in Flash for M6ii
    Thanks R2.  I came across that thread several hours after posting my question...  I often find it difficult to use the search feature effectively.  An initial search missed the thread so I posted ...
  • Created discussion thread Flash for M6ii
    I'm looking for recommendations for a flash to go with my m6ii.  The Chinese made flash I used with my T2i is not compatible with the new camera.  I also want something more compact than a ...
  • Yep, did both of those things. I had some initial success but also some problems. I need to do a more careful test this evening. Thanks for the help Jack!
  • Well, this is interesting.  I tired the Export Back to Application but did not see the edited image in PSU.  Is there anything else I need to do in PSU to get it to display? Thanks for your help.
  • Haha... We wouldn't want you banned, you provide too much value-added information.  From my perspective, I've always found your posts to be even-handed and thoughtfully generic.
  • Thanks for jumping into this conversation Mario.  I remember you provided some helpful insights a couple years ago when I last investigated independent DAMs. Yep, this makes a lot of sense in ...
  • As a former executive in the software industry I can tell you this happens all the time, when both companies perceive it to be in their best interest. Now, in this case, it doesn't necessarily ...
  • Yes, I agree. I saw your earlier post, it addressed my second question because I too make regular use of virtual copies. I must say, I expected a higher degree of connection between the dam and ...
