  • Your photos really capture the spirit of the event ... looks like a fun time
  • I've bought several refurbished lenses directly from the Canon store.  All have been indistinguishable from new with the same 1 year warranty from Canon.
  • 55-200 Pros (1) native EFM lens (2) compact size (3) good IQ 55-200 Cons (1) fits M bodies only (2) needs good light, esp. at long end
  • 35 f/2 IS available from Canon refurb store - $408.  Essentially a new lens w/1 year warranty.  A very good bang for the buck ... I use mine a lot, both on FF and crop.
  • Replied in Which lens?
    I have a good copy of EF-M 55-200 as well as the EF-M 18-55 ... I hope the IQ of the 18-150 equals or exceeds the 18-55/55-200 combo as it will be a much more convenient travel solution.  I'm ...
  • I'm using a 3rd Gen 1.4X with the 70-200 f/4L IS with good results.  I've not tried a 2X but suspect focusing might be an issue.  I have not seen/read test results but just reporting what is ...
  • Sounds like the OP would be well served with either the M or the M2.  Both are quite good but the M2 might be the better choice ... smaller, a few more features, etc.  Try to get the 22mm pancake ...
  • Yes ... I have a couple of late 2012 minis that are used daily for numerous tasks.  Both are dual boot running El Capitan & Windows 10. Mini feature sets that I would want in an updated Mini are: ...
  • I have a 6D, M, and M2 (plus a few other bodies & cams).  I mostly use the M's to supplement the 6D.  The 6D remains my go-to for most landscape needs plus all of my low light needs but the M2 ...
  • I'm also guessing that it's dust on the sensor. Stop your lens down & take a photo of a solid background ... the blue sky (no clouds) works well for this ).  If dust on the sensor you may see ...
  • very nice photos ... I'm inspired to mount my 100 L macro to either the M or M2 for even more M fun
  • For your 6D the best bang-for-the-buck choice is the 40mm f/2.8 pancake.  It is quite sharp even wide open and the small size is really perfect when you want a small, lightweight kit.  I have used ...
  • Reading the original posts + replies it appears that you would prefer the Canon 100 f/2.8 IS macro which is truly an outstanding lens that can be used in so many different ways.  Unless you ...
  • No ... already have the orig. M as well as the M2, both of which I use as a light weight travel kit.  I am interested in the 18-150 lens, depending on tests, actual photo samples, etc. I've been ...
  • My goto body for best IQ is the 6D.  I also have/use a couple of M bodies that I like a lot (mostly for size/convenience) and they both make very nice images but I believe the 6D is still better. ...
  • As always, your photos are both excellent & inspiring.  I'm still learning my 100mm macro L and now I'm anxious to combine it with my M2 to see what I can come up with.  Wonderful pics ... thanks.
  • If it's a family vacation and you want to capture memories consider traveling as light as possible.  If you will have special photographic opportunities then consider what equipment will be the ...
  • Just checked my M2 with Wasabi battery ... display shows battery percentage
  • Your plan is good ... the M2 is quite nice and a bit of an upgrade from the original M.  I have & use both to supplement my 6D & 50D.  I probably use the M2 a bit more than the M but in good light ...
  • I got the M system mostly out of curiosity.  For me at least, it has become a very nice supplement to my 6D and is quite handy as a travel kit. I have the original M, then bought an M2 on sale, ...
