  • Some say that it is all a matter of liberty, freedom, and overreach. Maybe they haven't been in a serious car accident like I was. I am thankful that the steering wheel collapsed and the air bag...

  • I've got the 5D mk4, G1X mk2 as my travel cam, and want to upgrade the G1. Yes 1299 is steep, but I never buy the intro price.  As a travel cam, for me, ending at 45mm is fatal.  If it had 15-60 ...
  • +1.  What is an upgrade that would interest me?  I've got a G1x ii and a 5d mk4.  Anymore I won't lug around the 4 unless I know I'm going to need it and my primary focus is on taking photos.  G1x ...
  • Thanks so much for your account.  I've been considering an M5 for a casual travel cam, & you covered most of my questions about kit.  8n addition to your M lenses, I've thought it might good to ...
  • I don't know Canon's master plan, but I know mine. I won't buy a M5 with the lenses they have now, but I would buy the M5 & 15-85, 11-22, & maybe a 22, if they had a 15-85 f3.5 to 6.3 that was ...
  • Replied in Damn it
    Ha, ha.  Yeah, I'm there also.  I hope we aren't on the same flight next to each other on the flight back from some trip.  I'm still taking my G1X mx2 on my travels.  I wish C either would make a ...
  • True that.  But, don't cha' know, "it's the camera not the ohotographer."  Actually, it is a matter of shooting style & convenience while casually travelling.  I don't want to lug my big bag with ...
  • I've thought that 15 - 85 in M mount would be my preference for a light weight "travel" oriented lens:  on the cam most of the time.  But, I don't know what compromises that would bring.
  • 1st: In the mid 50's at age 11, Kodak Pony 135 with focus, ASA, shutter, and aperture adjustments, but no light meter or focusing aid. (Kodak included with its film a chart indicating reasonable...

  • Replied in Solar eclipse
    I've looked at the websites you have linked. I've got some ideas from Mr. Eclipse (the others seem too dated). I'd like to know more about what to expect in exposure settings etc as it progresses ...
  • If the M5 was able to replace my 7D2 for wildlife, I wouldn't hesitate.  But, most opinions I've seen suggest that it wouldn't.  What are your thoughts? More likely, a M5 would replace my G1x2 as a ...
  • I have a gx7 as my "party/gathering" camera. I have an old Nikon case made of artificial hide that it snugly fits in. I can carry it in my front "grandpa" jeans pocket or cargo pocket, or jacket...

  • FYI, I use the 7D2 for wildlife only.  If I sold it, I would use the M5 for wildlife & general travel (now I have a PS G1X2 for travel & I would sell it also & use the M5 for both travel & wildlife).
  • Created discussion thread M5 IQ with ef lenses.
    I've got a 7D2 & a 5D3, 17-40, 24-105, & 100-400.  Thinkin about the M5.  What would be the IQ of these lenses with the M5 & adapter?  What M lens (esl would you add?  Bigger issue, would I be ...
