  • but... isn't it in essence the same lens as the E-mount version offered by Tamron for Sony NEX back in 2011 ? At that time it did created a bit of stir being cheaper that the little earlier Sony's ...
  • Indeed - what I've noticed in the past 5 yrs. while using Sony's E-mount cams and frequenting their WWW places (here @DPR, at Fred M. etc.) is that a substantial fraction of such users like myself ...
  • wasn't the TIME that passed since M1 till M6 long enough to finally ... give us a truly good Canon's MILC that actually IS a low light & a competent flash & sports/fast-action/BIF camera ? A ...
  • ...but it clearly IS NOT, and not only in this respect - the FW is botched in rather too many places ( perhaps it's non-EOS pedigree is the real culprit behind all those small and large annoyances? ) ...
  • Exactly :) are you aware yet... of any good (and by good I mean of as stringently taken as possible, no corners cutting & with no loosely/leniently applied critical-focus criteria) tests in ...
  • I'm eying the E-mount systems pretty closely since the late 2011 already (in fact I got myself the N7-classic back then = very capable and fun 24Mpx RF-style MILC, allowing me to use all EF and ...
  • Marco, thank you - that clarifies things :) And a little correction: what I did mean earlier about the AF-confirmation series of tiny-weeny beeps concerned of course the 'AI-focus' mode. In both ...
  • Marco, are these two beep types of the SAME tone & volume? And how loud is the AF-confirm one (say, in comparison to your 5d3)? A very, very quiet AF-confirm beep would be of some use IMO, esp. in ...
  • Jim, you're perfectly right in your musings where it concerns the PDAF-classic systems (be them split prism, micro-dot prisms, or of "digital" OSPDAF type - designed and provided with a ...
  • IMO without that top beam everything gets rather boring :) , also I liked the OP's B&W better. Just a quick & dirty free transform of the geometry there: quick and dirty free transform perhaps the ...
  • are you happy with the critical sharpness of the small paper's lettering she touches? or the lettering above the left breast? Supposedly it was at f/2 (no EXIF, so this is not certain, also no SS ...
  • (1) a static target - even manual focus would do there, where is the challenge? (1) lots of contrast & an easy target (tonnes ...
  • alas, despite being 1/2 year younger the M6, AFIK, didn't fix any of the bugs, annoyances and most glaring FW omissions, etc. present in the M5. One of the many threads on them can be found here . ...
  • the time proven and honored shutter release priority mode (which btw.. was always present in cameras for over a century now - actually more: since the very inception of photography), is... NOT ...
  • Replied in Full frame?
    redefinition: APS-C = "compact FF"?? also, "kids/pets" in action are about as tough to do well as "sports", sometimes even much tougher due to cramped spaces indoors PLUS low light - so, how it ...
  • what is your 18-135, a Canon? jpr2
  • ...more precise and with a better control of critical-focus to just use the focus peaking? jpr2
  • Replied in how about...
    Yes, the convenience appeal of consumer grade super-zooms makes them alluring. At the beginning of my ongoing romance with the digital I got caught with them too, like the Tammy 18-200. However, ...
  • Paul, no, I reckon that the 18-55 should be better than the 15-45 (longer FLs are usually easier to correct), but... one never know without checking. Alas, wasn't able to find a review giving us ...
  • ...or even might have nothing to do with your problems at hand, but... how bad might be barrel/pincushion distortions on the EF-M 18-55 (on the 15-45 they're pretty horrible )? jpr2
