  • In addition to a couple of DSLR's & some L glass I also have & use an original M, an M2, and several M lenses. I really like the image quality that I get when using either of my M bodies but ...
  • How does the 18-150 compare to the 55-200?  images about the same? or do you still feel the need for the additional 50mm reach of the 55-200?
  • not crazy at all, especially if the result is improved IQ & convenience. Another Sigma that you might want to check out is the 17-70 for longer range. I've never used it but have read positive ...
  • As others have also stated I prefer to use the native lens as much as possible, mainly to take advantage of the size advantage. My favorite native lenses are the 22 and 11-22, although I find ...
  • The 35 f/2 IS is currently on sale for $408 in the Canon Refurb store, but sold out a couple of days ago. Good price and the refurbs are nearly the same as new plus carry a 1 year warranty. I've ...
  • Impressive images ... just a thought ... have you used the 100-400 m2?  If so, what's your feeling about the 100-400 vs the 150-600?
  • might not be be in your budget -- but since the 100L has been mentioned a couple of times, it might be helpful to know that it is currently on sale in the Canon refurb store for $612
  • Replied in Low Tide
    the 11-22 does a nice job again
  • I appreciate your comments comparing the 18-150 to the 18-55 and 55-200 and I've looked for lens tests for those lenses without success ( perhaps I'm looking in the wrong places ). If possible ...
  • Were you trying to get closer than these? Both taken with EOS M and EFM 18-55 lens Not the sharpest I've ever taken but for my first tries at closeups using my brand new M handheld, they're OK ...
  • Five thumbs up !!! and I only have two ;-) that said, I totally agree with your assessment.   I like the idea of a 24-120 (FF equivalent) ... even a 24-105 would be nice.  I do prefer metal mounts ...
  • I would be interested in knowing this also
  • Replied in 35mm F2 IS
    I would prefer a 35 f/1.8 IS over a 50 ... but yeah, I would probably put 10% up front to have those lenses, especially at that price point.
  • All replies have been helpful suggestions on how best to approach the "ideal" travel kit.  At the moment I'm leaning toward making the best use of my existing equipment (i.e. avoiding new ...
  • Yes, on the positive responses.  I've been impressed with the image quality from both my original M and the M2, especially since I bought them during the massive price drop.  I'm hoping for a ...
  • Thanks ... another confirmation to travel with the M kit.  But I'm not quite ready to sell my 6D and L lenses.
  • Hadn't thought about a panorama ... excellent idea!
  • Trying hard not to overthink it but your post helps me swing back to reality.  I especially like your comment of  "2 lenses - 11-22 and 18-150. Done."  That's essentially the way I would prefer to ...
  • This is very helpful ... thanks!
  • Exactly!  We are very much at the same point ... and I expect to be somewhat conflicted about the best solution until the time of the trip.  Just when I begin to thinking a complete M setup will ...
