  • He’s talking about autofocus noise. That is not a high bar, to be fair. From everything I have seen it obviously isn’t a Sigma 35 Art, not as sharp and 2/3 of a stop smaller aperture, but is much ...
  • I think it sounds like a very good idea. Why not. You’d get most of the size benefits plus a better grip. One point, the RP viewfinder has the same specs as the M50 viewfinder, as far as I am ...
  • Thanks for sharing an alternative view. I guess that is why they got rid of the mode dial lock. I think the M-Fn button is a better (and simpler) solution though: no matter what mode you start out ...
  • I don't own the EOS R though there is one little discussed feature that is one of the reasons I would consider it. I have to credit Joe (Hoka Hey) as he mentioned this in passing as an advantage of ...
  • Thanks for sharing these. Most of the boosted ones look more pleasing to me though the shift in orange really is something else. Goes to show that a delicate hand is often called for.
  • I'd also be interested to see this. (If it is anything like the Huelight profiles for the 5D4 the main change is a shift from green to pink/magenta and a general lightening, for want of a better ...
  • Yes please to the 53mm f/1.4

  • I have used BBF in the past but I’m not sure I’ll do that here for these reasons: 1. BBF makes sense in Servo...but then you lose eye-AF 2. The * button is a bit awkward to reach - though I’m sure ...
  • I’m pretty happy with my purchase so far. I think it will be a great little piece of tiny, ultra light weight kit once paired with one of the EF-M primes. So it’s definitely too soon to say it’s ...
  • Sorry, I don’t currently have a good prime lens or good light, but I suspect that “much better” is the answer.
  • So my M50 finally arrived this evening - horay! But not the 22mm and adapter - boo! Some very, very initial thoughts: I’m already liking touch and drag. It makes so much sense and this seems like a ...
  • Nice pictures. However the RF50 (950g) is about 36% heavier than the RF 24-105 (700g) so definitely not more than double. ;-)
  • Replied in From DPP
    Looks less green (i.e. better) to me.
  • Yes. Manual page 316.
  • Does this setting calculate the distance between the camera and each of the faces and chose an aperture that will get everyone in focus? Kinda neat if so.
  • Oddly, of the 6 functions that are directly accessible using the top buttons on the 5D/7D lines, metering mode seems to have been dropped from the little menu of items that are called up by ...
  • Isnt it the case that tin can hold a number of buttons and rotate the top dial to change exposure comp? On recent Canon DSLRs this was available but only with the set button. It works fine on my ...
  • I don't normally work off test charts etc., and in real life I have gotten decent results with this lens wide open, but this comment prompted me to check the Digital Picture's lens comparison tool. ...
  • I don't take criticism of any gear personally (that would be a strange thing to do) so there is absolutely no need to apologise. I only intervened here to help the OP. I did not want the OP to ...
  • "Very soft" and now "remarkably soft" are not appropriate descriptions for this lens. I have plenty of high end glass too. I rarely use the 40 STM but not because of it not being sharp enough. Yes, ...
