  • Thanks for demonstrating you do not mind victimising different views to yours, and different lenses to the 22mm, presumably to make yourself feel better. Unfortunately this did not make you more ...
  • I think you can explain things clearer than me. Thanks. Recently I went to two school events (it's end of school year time) - indoor and people. I did not find needs to switch back to the 22mm in ...
  • Thanks for sharing your recent experience with the 22mm. If your camera happened to have the 15-45 mounted for the trip, would it be likely that most of your photos being equally good?
  • Created discussion thread EF-M 22mm overhyped?
    I found my EF-M 22mm barely gets used in real world shooting. In most cases the kit lens 15-45 does an equally good job, with as good IQ and of course the flexibility of the zoom. (another way of ...
  • Replied in 50mm f/1.4
    This is a very interesting aspect. Say the combination of M50's AF with certain lenses may not handle sufficiently wide range of lights well - causing reduced contrast levels being used by the AF ...
  • 55-250's IS is amazing. But this AF / clarity observation is a separate thing. In live view, regardless the texts are moving or not, how clear they are is already noticeable, before shots are taken.
  • Thanks. I know what you mean. But I can confirm, besides the AF issue, there is definitely the resolution difference as well. In my test shots, even when the 50mm focused correctly, including in ...
  • Thanks for all the replies. It seems its inconsistency gene plays a role here. Wondering  whether mounting it onto the M series mirrorless also introduced further performance issue.
  • I would have no problem if it is just the old 50mm is not as good. But I knew it had done better before and there must be some issue causing the bad photos. Well I played with the lens aberration ...
  • Created discussion thread Strange behaviour? What could it be?
    I happened to feel like running some comparison shots between an EF-S 55-250 IS STM @55mm (I got recently) and an old EF 50mm f/1.8 II. Due to the aperture differences and one being a prime and ...
  • I live in Australia. Gals to find out there are a number of people from down under on this site. (Watched the melbourne cup yesterday on TV. Did not win anything though. ) cheers!
  • been having an issue with the M50 on AF - for some lenses, can focus well close up but a step back would become fairly worse. Trying different things. I am not keen on the Canon’s focal reducer as ...
  • Thanks for sharing your experience with the Zhongyi Lens Turbo, I assume it is pretty much the same as a Viltrox speedbooster, probably made in different factories in China per same design. How ...
  • All good tips, thanks for them. Yeah, the most common / annoying school hall etiquette offenders are those raising the phone/camera above their heads and those couldnt keep quiet. I actually looked ...
  • Was just following the terminologies used on eBay. If you use focal reducer on eBay you miss out. Also saw people kind of use speedbooster as a generic term while Speed Booster being a registered ...
  • Thanks. I was questioning the camera then was wondering if the EF-M 22mm lens was somehow off focus but again, it could produce crisp clear photos when close up and the focusing square is surely ...
  • My hands are not steady enough - 250mm @1/10th was clearly not as good as 1/60th. Maybe I could push to 1/30th in some cases but it depends. 55mm@1/10th would be quite acceptable it seemed. I also ...
  • I know what you mean about EF-S lenses and FF cameras. But if we say a speedbooster’s glass is to be touched and damaged, Viltrox has six EF-S lenses listed as compatible. Does this suggest ...
  • Just got this new lens, haven’t got chance taking many shots. AF seems really good. But indeed, this lens’ IS IS great! Tried a case for fail - on 250mm shooting a can with small print texts about ...
  • Seeking first hand experience on the compatibility of using Viltrox speedbooster on the EF-S lenses, on a mirrorless camera (mine is a Canon M50, but other aps-c , like Sony, would be equally ...
