  • jura S, Would I need an adapter "EOS-M to M42"?  Or is there another "official" name for the adapter I would need if using M42 lenses?   Does any particular M42 lens stand out to you as a good ...
  • My mind must have been asleep.  I already have the Canon 40mm f2.8 pancake lens.  So I guess another 40mm, even though manual, might not be the best lens for me to start my entrance in ...
  • In order to use your Voigt. 40 f2 lens on the EOS-M, you did not need any additional adapter other than the one that came with the "M"?  What mount did the Voigt. have? Thanks
  • When first looking into this, Minolta legacy lenses seemed to be recommended more than other brands. Might you care to recommend any specific Minolta lenses?  And which (specific) adapter would be ...
  • Since this will be my first experience using legacy/manual lenses, I would like to keep cost as low as reasonably possible.  Does Pentax make a good macro lens?  I wany to purchase only one lens ...
  • trungtran, Thanks for the info(and to all others who have contributed comments).  Might i ask if you could offer a few specific GOOD legacy prime lenses based on your experience?  I'm especially ...
  • Replied in legacy lenses
    jpr2, I was somewhat aware that some Canon legacy lenses required an adapter with glass within them....and this would cause negative affects in quality.  So what about some Minolta or Pentax older ...
  • 1)  First I need to be convinced that this is worth the effort for my EOS-M(1).  My main advantage would be for "focus peaking", but are there other major benefits to it? 2)  Then since I've never ...
  • I must apologize.  I just committed the unpardonable sin of asking a question before researching on my own.  I see there has been discussion on this very topic in the past. Sorry 'bout that. Bob
  • Created discussion thread Rokinon or Lensbaby Fisheye lenses?
    I understand that the Rokinon 8mm f3.5 Fisheye lens is pretty good, and does receive many favorable comments from users.  And it's much more affordable than the top brand fisheyes.  But how does ...
  • So I'd be no better off using a legacy lens on my EOS-M then?  Is such a combination even possible? So how about using OLympus legacy lenses on my T2i?  Would I need an adapter with a lens on that ...
  • Created discussion thread FD lenses on T2i....anyone?
    Are any of you folks using legacy FD (manual) lenses on your Digital Rebel cameras?  Is this a practical thing at all?  The focus would have to be totally eyeballed.  Correct?  So using smaller ...
  • A couple White-tailed spotted in Rice Lake State Park, south central Minnesota. As often as we've been able to spot and photograph deer in the area, this was the first time of seeing a buck. These ...
  • Created discussion thread Is DPP in printed form?
    I'm interested in again trying RAW, and understand that DPP has such.  I'm also aware that DPP has many U-Tube videos.  But I would prefer a printed hard copy of the RAW processing if available. ...
  • Replied in T2i vs. T3i
    Thanks folks.  But I think I'll stick with a T2i and save a few bucks.  The advantages of the T3i just aren't enough to move me there.  I have a T2i that has been failing, and have a lead on a LN ...
  • Created question thread T2i vs. T3i
    A simple question.  In comparing these 2 cameras, it appears the only substantial (to some folks) difference seems to be the T3i's articulated LCD.  Are there really any other appreciable ...
  • Thanks, Jim, for getting this thread back on track.
  • I'd like to hear from you folks who have given up your DSLR gear in favor of the FZ1000. 1)  Did you really get rid of the DSLR or just shelve it? 2)  Do you still feel the FZ1000 is as good as you ...
  • Replied in Thanks all
    Apparently the size and weight makes all the difference. That, plus the fact that the 55-250mm is getting good IQ comments, I'll think I'll opt to go with that one over the 70-300mm. Thank you all ...
  • Looking for a like-new Canon T3i camera, body only, but with body cap, battery and charger. PM me with your offering detailing condition, and asking price. Thank you, Bob
