  • Either one will do. If you want the better optical quality, and lower light performance, the 12-100 f4 is it. But you are penalized with size, weight, and cost. If you are willing to trade those, ...
  • I plan to get those as they are cheaper. In fact, I already ordered a charger that can use power banks to charge the batts.  This in case, I can't charge my batts via outlets. But I don't think ...
  • Replied in The 80d
    Bruno, I'd go for the 80d,  unless you need the 10fps or so of the 7d ii. For most uses 7fps is enough. But the 80d is much newer and has the better AF now. There's also the possibility there will ...
  • Unfortunately is sold in our country (NTSC video/tv) and I don't think they will ship outside the Philippines. But here's the link. https://www.lazada.com.ph/canon-eos-m6-ef-m-15-45mm-f35-63-is-stm ...
  • Ok. I didn't know that! Thanks for the info. No problem with that. I use 80MB/sec sandisk cards. :) I have the sony a5100 with the 16-50 kit lens. I tend to grab that more often. Maybe the better ...
  • Thanks! Also just checked youtube for some who had the same lenses I have and the 85mm f1.8 usm and 50 stm seem to AF just fine. The 18-135 stm is a bit large, but I can live with that for wider ...
  • There was another sale earlier for about this price you had. Local Canon distributor even had a 5-day trade-in sale where 25% off was applied to the m5, m6, 800d and 77d. Trade in any old EOS ...
  • Created discussion thread The Canon M6 for U$574 !?
    It was not part of the plan to get it earlier. But the knock down price was hard to resist! :) I just ordered online the M6 with 15-45 kit lens from Lazada. It's our local version of Amazon for ...
  • The m6 should be ok. The m6, m5, m100, 77d/800d, sony a6300/6500 are as good as it goes for AF at that price point. But you must not forget that good fast lenses are still needed to get up the ...
  • Yes. If in doubt check the panasonic web site. It says it will work if you update the lens firmware. I have in mine. It works for my G85 and it should work with the G9. Personally, I see no reason ...
  • The info is clear. It's all over youtube. Max Yuriyev and others have shown that the GH5's AF-C is not good. My G85 is the same. Those things are easily demonstrable. Last Saturday, there was a ...
  • Replied in Then ...
    ... you better be the best photographer in the world!
  • yes. Not sure with the 35-100 f2.8. I don't have those. But it should. Last Saturday I was able to test a G9 with the 100-400. The AF-S was ok. But the AF-C was very slow. The Japanese Panasonic ...
  • Because updates may solve some problems, but it may also introduce unwanted or side effects or other bugs. As for Fuji, well, they do need an update in AF. They are not exactly well noted for that. ...
  • Well, there's really few 40mm or 45mm lens out there. Canon has a 40mm ef-s STM lens. But that is f2.8 and I don't have that. The easiest one to compare is a 50mm f1.8. That should give one about ...
  • At this point of time, I think it is not important anymore who did what first. The present is now and we will be deciding our gears based on what they can offer to us now. The good news is ...
  • Frequent firmware updates are not necessarily good. In fact, they may be a sign of hurried or poor release. 1 - Firmware updates should address only problems that crop up that were not seen by ...
  • It's more than just that. It's more important that it is effective. Both Panasonic and Sony were initially not as good in IBIS even if they claim 5-axis. So if you are still using the older ...
  • Glad to be of help! :) BTW, don't worry about optical quality. Most of today's lenses, even kit lenses are pretty good optically, unless one bad copy pops up, which is now rare these days.  But ...
  • All are good lenses.  I don't think IQ is not much far off from either combinations. The question is whether you are going to be content with a single 18-150 lens. Put another way, will you miss ...
