  • I think these are poor pics to form an opinion about the two lenses.  At ISO 2000 a lot of detail is lost and the subject does not help at all.  The biggest difference I see is in the text in the ...
  • The 50-150 OS is a fantastic lens and the 50-100 is a step above it.  The focus on my 50-100A was very good.  I tested it side by side with a 24-105 LII and the Sigma was more consistent but the ...
  • I found no difference in IQ between the two.  I used my 18-135 + adaptor on my M5 till the day I took a minute to look at the difference in size and weight, 2 to 1 for both size and weight,  I ...

    Thank you that was a very interesting read ;)
  • I have used the Slide on my 7DII for some time and like it a lot but I found it to big and heavy for my M5.  I think the Leash is a better fit for a small camera.  I use the pro clip with both, so ...
  • I think you proved my point, the SL2, T7i, 77D are copies (for the most part) of the M5. That means the M5 was where MOST of the engineering money went.  I can take it from your response you have ...
  • " I think Canon is making a statement with the price of the m5 compared to the sl2. That is, they are saying look our regular sl2 pricing is great. Forget about mirrorless as we are not serious ...
  • When I read this I tried to fit my M5 with the 22 f2 into a pocket of my cargo pants and there was  no way it was going to fit.  Never made it past the lens no matter how I worked it :(  But this ...
  • At one time I watched Tony but over time there were too many things that he was 100% wrong about. Some he would came back and corrected but not many. Fact check things not an opinion.
  • I agree with this 100%, very good comment :) But I do think the advantage shifts back to the M5/M6 when a lens is mounted. 24 2.8 = 125g, 22 2.0 = 105g 10-22 = 385g, 10-18 = 240g, 11-22 = 220g 18-1 ...
  • I agree with Abu on this the 15-45 has a very nice range, size/weight that nothing in the ef line can match.  I may of been lucky but my copy is sharp over most of the lens.
  • " 4. I have had problems (reported many of time on the forum) with attached canon flashes not using the flash pre-flash and thus are at times very slow in focusing. Some people get around this with ...
  • Yes its under the setup 4 menu,  2nd menu tab from the left then 4.  At the bottom of the screen you will see a camera icon and formware ver.: 1.0.1. Select and press set. The same screen used to ...
  • If your 15-45 has firmware v 2.0 then the OS in the lens works with the M6.  I had to update my 15-45 and I have only had it a month.  You update lens firmware the same as camera body update :)
  • " Unlike optical IS, it does not compensate for blur. It only reduces frame-to-frame jerks." But it does work with the optical IS in some of the M lenses. 15-45 18-150.
  • "So, what is the 100 good for that the 150 cannot Do." I have both and what its come down to for ME is if its on a tripod I use the 150-600 if not then I use the 100-400.  At 66 soon 67 it's ...
  • Replied in Canon 90D...
    "The 70d high ISO still images are a smidge better than those from the 80d based on the test images on IR. That's why I didn't upgrade." I am sorry but I don't believe that for a sec. My 7DII had ...
  • Abu I must say you are the reason I have the 22 f2 and the 11-22, great lenses thanks :)  I picked up the 15-45 about a month ago and was a bit surprised at how sharp it is.
