  • The 18-150 is now available on the Canon Refurb website especially after you use the 15% discount given on the site.
  • I just got one.
  • The last thing I want in a camera is video.  Wish Canon would produce a good small camera that devoted all its features and memory to still photographs.  People that want video can buy a movie camera.
  • Found it!!!  I did not realize you had to be in  "Playback" to see the playback menu.
  • Created discussion thread Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens
    Has any one used this lens on an M camera? Verdict? I have the EF-M 22 on order but am looking for another lens us use in low light situations.  The 50mm f1.8 is popular but I just think it is a ...
  • Created discussion thread Highlight Alert
    Is there a highlight alert (blinkies for an over exposure) on the M5 like I am used to on the 5D and 7D?  I have checked the menu and the manual index and can find nothing?
  • I just received my M5 refurb purchased direct from Canon on a special that included the adapter.  Guess what?  The tripod mount was on the adapter.
  • Replied in 35mm F2 IS
    Has anyone used the EF-40 f2.8 pancake lens on the M5 for low light indoor situations.  To me the 50 f1.8 is a little long for indoor use but I would like something a little longer than the 22 f2 ...
  • Replied in 35mm F2 IS
    I did a 30 day trip to Italy 2 years ago with the 5DIII.  The longest lens I had with me was the 24-105.  There might have been a few places I could have used a little longer reach.  150mm on a ...
  • Replied in No (nt)
    That is the lens I was looking at.  I did not realize it did not work with the Canon extenders (verified on the Canon site).  I will have to look and see if I still  have my old Kenko extender.
  • Replied in No (nt)
    The EF-M 55-200.
  • Replied in No (nt)
    That is what I was afraid of as I could not find any on Canon's site.  Just was hoping maybe there was a non OEM teleconverter.
  • Created discussion thread Teleconverter
    Is there a teleconverter  that can be used on the M5 with native M lenses??
  • I do not know the laws in state if Washington, but in Pennsylvania if you pick up the item in person they must charge you sales tax.  If they ship the item out of Pennsylvania they do not charge ...
  • I did a Myanmar trip last year and my 24-105 was definitely not wide enough (I also had the 17-40). I did not have a longer lens with me and the only time I wanted one was while on the river ...
  • Any device with a lithium battery installed is acceptable in checked luggage.  Loose (uninstalled) lithium batteries are not.
  • I have used CPW and the deal was 100% as advertised.  The dealer gave good delivery.
  • I have the 5DIV and have never used the GPS or wifi.  I just went on a 3 week trip to Myanmar and took 11,000 photographs and labeled/cataloged them each night.
  • The reason I am going to buy the M5 is because it has a view finder.  I will NOT  buy a camera that does not have one and you have to hold it like a dirty diaper to take a photograph.
