BigBen08: If I use the adaptor and EF lens, how will AF performance be affected?

I don't notice any difference between focusing my 100mm f2.8 Macro (non-L) or 17-40L on my EOS-M and 5D bodies.

MCosta: This triple-camera is a great disappointment. Why all the major smartphone brands have this photo over sharpening syndrome? I've been using a Motorola X Force from 2015 (with a 21Mp sensor) and the camera has much more quality in details and shadows than all the flagships from Samsung, Huawei, LG and even Sony and iPhone. Today I did some tests, side by side in all the modes and the P20 Pro doesn't come close to my Moto X Force. Sure, the P20 Pro has the zoom and all the bells and whistles one should cry for, but I still prefer the clear, natural and non destructive processing of the image from my 2015's Moto X.

It's because that will net them the highest DXO mark score. That's what counts nowadays. I don't like it either.

Roland Schulz: Ok, I was not the greatest GoPro friend in the past, I always hoped Sony to catch up much earlier! But what do we have today?! We have the Hero 6 with really great 4K 50/60p for an actioncam, Sony has not! Xiaomis 4K+ is also not in the same league.
GoPro has this really tiny Hero Session that nobody else has in this formfactor.
The only problem was the quality in the past and that the market is saturated now. They have to slim down and continue their business.
The big bucks are made, that will not come back but that's still a business worth running.

Billy, The Sony IS is no match for an actioncam (any) with a good gimbal. Yes, that combo is more expensive, but soo much better. So I don't value camera IS that much.

I dunno, most (like 90%) of the pictures I saw on instagram don't even have people in it, so how would that be harmful to the tree? Of the pictures with people in them, most have the people on the beach, of on the small island of the tree. I saw one photo where a girl leans on the tree trunk.

sop51: Kim Trashkardian claims she invented the selfie in her new book titled "Selfish." That about says it all, doesn't it.

A friend of mine was taking selfies in the pre-digital age. So no, Kim didn't invent selfies. My friend is borderline narcissistic though... maybe that says something about Kim?

Bring extra batteries. Where you can see the Aurora Borealis, it's most often very cold, so batteries tend to last much shorter than in warmer weather.

The subscription plan might be worth wile if you could post links to pictures on websites and forums, like web storage (like Dropbox used to behave with their piblic folder). If not, I'm out. Still using Lightroom 4.

dtibi: EF to EF-M speedbooster with AF would make more sense....

This. Been waiting so long for this (not the hacked ones you can find on ebay).

ryder78: From the photos of the portrait shot of the lady, I don't agree that the Pixel 2 fared the worst. If comparing between the Pixel 2 12MP and iPhone 8 12 MP, the Pixel 2's detail is better. Look at the jacket and shoes she is wearing on both images. There is better detail on the Pixel 2 as these details are all lost on the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 also adds a warmish tone to the colors of the image especially the skin.

But look at the right background, it's more or less in focus, but the left background is nicely blurred. But a further back, the blur gets less and more in-focus. This is weird and can be seen without pixel-peeping to see which camera provided the best texture detail.

LEGACYMOMENTSPHOTOGRAPHY: nice design shame my M1 does not have that texture just that stupid grip.

Still using the M1 too.

In reply to:

IamJF: Does a sports Pro really NEED a 400f2.8 with todays sensors or are you just used to it? DOF of 400f4 should be thin enough?
I never did Sports in that leaque (and never will), so I'm really curious about this.
A 400f4 could be a nice match to Sony Ax Series.

With a 400 f2.8 you could add a 1.4 extender and still end up with a fairy fast lens. Not so much with an f4 lens.

@D7000ShooterUK: you do realise there's the M5, which is an M6 with EVF built-in.

If you want an EVF that can tilt up, buy the old one, EVF-DC1. That one fits too.

pkcpga: Just recommended taking the picture with your hand side facing out instead of palm side.

That's an obscene guesture in some parts of the world :)
