  • Totally understand your pain!  I have PD anchors on most of my cameras and I have two straps (one wide and one narrow, which I use based on the size and weight of the camera).  Getting the anchor ...
  • I have the stm RF version.  I generally prefer primes to zooms and I have very few zooms (correction: currently the RF 24-105 stm is my only zoom).  So clearly I have (or had) a bias towards ...
  • He apparently does well based on his house, his Mercedes and various valuable watches he uses as props in his photos. But there is no advertising on his website, he is a latecomer to YouTube, and ...
  • I like reading Rockwell, especially his older articles about film era equipment. But I hadn’t seen this before and it’s a great article. It explains this 1 inch nonsense. He sometimes gets a little ...
  • Lepewhi, I am not sure if you are responding to my post or to the OP. If to me, then yes, I borrowed an M50 from a friend not long ago. The combo with the 15-45mm was good but didn’t convince me ...
  • Thanks for the clarification. This is a significant feature that I think is unique to the T8i amongst Canon’s crop cameras (though I guess the 90D may have it). This post is four months old.  How ...
  • I have a T7 and I have had several SL1’s at various times. I am pretty sure the T7i has more focus points than the SL2 and the T7, which may or may not be important to you. All of the cameras ...
  • Replied in 5DMK3 Vs EOSR
    I agree on OVF vs. EVF but one big advantage of mirrorless that if you focus manually,  is focus peaking. It makes using vintage lenses on a R series camera viable.  It also helps a lot with TSE ...
  • I recently bought a T7 for travel and as a second camera to my RP. I am pretty happy with it. Size is perfect. I am not going to mount one of my tilt shift lenses on it or a heavy telephoto but it...

  • Replied in Size matters
    I forgot to say that an EOS M5 mark II would also be a good option, maybe the best option based on size.  I just cannot get comfortable with the accessory EVF on the M6.
  • Replied in Size matters
    Agree on all.   The musicians were practicing before the dinner started and there was still some daylight.   I put the 85mm on the T7 (a great combination) to see what I could get.  I was at ISO ...
  • Replied in Size matters
    That f/7.1 would be slightly better than f/4.5 on Canon APS-C and on a par with f/3.5 on micro four-thirds, so you'd still be better off with that lens than any of the EF-M zooms at that field of ...
  • Replied in Size matters
    Zoom lenses are the dividing factor right now in terms of cost, size and weight. An RP with 2 or three primes (16mm, 35mm and 50mm) is a compact,  lightweight competitively priced setup (bigger ...
  • The SL1 was my first interchangeable lens camera. I learned digital photography on that camera. But then I moved on after a year or two. A few months ago, I got tired of the EVF on my RP and also ...
  • I could not remember where I saw the T100 and why I thought it was a current model, but I just came across it again. It is on the Canon Refurbished website ($299 with a kit lens). So my mistake, ...
  • Olympus is a large public company. Their statements to the public have to be accurate or they get sued. At some point, the board voted on a proposal to sell the camera division. Before that date, ...
  • I guess it is like EVs vs. gasoline ICE vehicles. The EV is easier to assemble and cheaper to maintain but gives a very different user experience. I am having a hard time giving up optical ...
  • Very valid points but some of the suppliers of those components may, depending on alternative opportunities to deploy their resources, want to continue shipping them for a year or three, even at ...
  • The biggest APS-C gap that Canon needs to fill, and which they can price well (for them), would be a 7D mark ii replacement.  It will not be very compact and it will have a lot of technology ...
  • I agree. But what they might do is concentrate the M line on the M50. The M50 is apparently what drives volume in Japan and I assume in all other markets.  I think the M line will become a line of ...
