  • No impact for me. I don't find the bodies compelling yet and there are a few issues (technical and crippling-wise) that would need to be addressed to make them more interesting to me. But mostly ...
  • The R system is still not enticing to me. But that's why I've been selling my Canon FF gear and going back to the M for full time use. Finally came to the realization that chasing the "best" was a ...
  • I suspect Canon is going to go at least one more model round of DSLRs (FF and APS-C) across the board. Maybe two with some of the key models. It's a lot to do but it is going to be easier to ...
  • For me, the problem with the R right now is big, expensive lenses. Even with a lighter, smaller "entry-level" R, you would have to adapt lenses and even then you would not match the M system.
  • You are on a quest of course for the holy grail. My 2 cents: I have tried inserts in a conventional backpack and really, really hated it. This might work in some situations but, for me, it is a ...
  • I may be misunderstanding...both those lenses would be too long on an M. I was saying that I would like a 60mm 1.8 native M lens for portraits. Or at least 55mm.
  • The 50 1.8 STM is definitely good value IMO but it is far short of a great lens and not ideal for portraits as a result. Don't get me wrong, I use it and like it. I would just like something better. ...
  • Replied in Annoying
    This is the big problem with the design. It's quite easy to put the cap on and have be just not quite on. I too have taken lenses out of the bag and found the cap has come off. Not sure there's an ...
  • Thanks for posting these. Very helpful to see a lot images here on the forum as I'm thinking about buying this lens. Overall, I'm pleased with what I've seen. The bokeh is interesting. At times I'm ...
  • I may be mistaken but it seems a little unusual this year. They had the Best in Glass sale as per usual but everything has continued to be on sale. It will be three straight months at the end of ...
  • You are forgetting about Canon's dual-pixel tech. This is/can be a huge benefit to Canon. They would have to give that up if they moved to Sony. Which I don't think would happen for other reasons. ...
  • I just bought an M50 a couple weeks ago. The lens release button was the first thing I noticed. It feels a bit rough/cheap? Definitely not smooth. Not as nice as my M and M2.
  • At the risk of drawing some heat, I'm going to suggest that you forgot the release of the new iPhones. What these are doing with software is, honestly, way beyond anything the traditional camera ...
  • That still might be interesting to me at some point next year just for the extra external controls. But I would really like to see no crop on the 4K because it's an APS-C already. It really limits ...
  • What's the difference between the "K" and "EC" designation?
  • Yep. With taxes a little over that. More than I need to be spending on a lens right now that's for sure, but I do think I'm going to pop for it. It's one of two missing lenses for me. The other ...
  • I thought I was well settled for a while until all the announcements came out and then GAS started up again. But I've decided on a more unusual course of action. I'm going to sell off my entire ...
  • I didn't address these users as they are the most difficult group to address. Advanced crop users can move to RF eventually but that doesn't preclude the M mount from continuing if the M mount ...
  • I have decided to purchase an M50 and sort of reinvest in the M. As a result I've been gathering as much info as I can on the M50. Anecdotally, this camera appears to be a huge hit with vloggers. ...
  • This is a point (feeder system) that I disagree with. I don't have numbers on hand but my guess is that the vast majority of those who purchase a Rebel-level Canon DSLR stay with the kit zoom and ...
