  • I have both.  For me at min focusing distance and max mm I like my 55-200 better for the following reasons: 1.  I can be farther from the flower or a bug on the flower 2.  I have problems with ...
  • I many ways it depends upon the subject and how one goes about sharpening.  I now use LR's masking quite a bit and doing so reduces unneeded noise and allows sharpening edges without messing up ...
  • I agree with the writer above about a wide lens for scenes and big telephoto lens for animals.  But, your camera (also mine M5) is not for bif or for other fast moving things no matter the lens.  ...
  • Replied in I have both
    If I am going to be in places where a wide angle is important then the 18-150 is great.  I take alot of flower images and found the 55-200 sharper at 200 at closest focusing distance vs the 18-150 ...
  • If you focused manually then you can be sure what is being focused on.  The pole is small compared to the fence.  Here are some other things to consider: 1.  I forget which way the M series ...
  • As the saying goes, "people walk with their feet" and right now smart phones are good enough for most. Then there are the number of images being taken which has gone up exponentially...guess which...

  • It isn't just print photo magazines that are going to have financial problems now that dsrl sales are not increasing. That means the audience is not increasing. With a decreasing audience will...

  • In any case, it appears for now Canon's latest M strategy is working at least in parts of the world. Now for an upgrade M5 and a bunch more M lenses.  As far as lenses are concerned I want a M lens ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon financial results summary
    I copied the following from Canon Rumours. What this says to me Canon's new M series cameras are doing very well.  This is, Canon's M strategy is working.  What do you think all of this implies? Bp ...
  • On my m5 I just tried my s55-250 and ef f4 70-200 in all three focusing modes and they focus fine.  The m5 when it comes to focusing in good light and especially bad light is not speedy like my ...
  • I did the same yesterday on some flowers.  On my m5 with the 28mm M macro set at manual focus, manual exposure (500th of a second I think at f8 (maybe faster s-stop) and I had the lens light on.  ...
  • I use Clorox Germicidal wipes for my annual ant invasion.  I use the wipes on surfaces where the ants attack whatever they find to eat. I do have a question using the canon m-macro lens.  What ...
  • They implied Canon is going to be serious about the mirrorless segment starting from high volume segment first (low end) and then work their way up.  As a m5 user this sounds great for me.  The ...
  • For Canon this is a business decision which means: how can they sell a bunch of new mirrorless cameras besides the m without messing with their base. And allowing their base s users and full frame ...
  • Actually, I thought the same thing about micro adjust af.  I did it some, but it was a pain. When I started to use my canon 80d I noticed a big difference in the sharpness of my images when I used ...
  • To me besides size and weight mirrorless has the following advantages: 1.  No more micro af for each lens/camera 2.  What you see out of the evf or lcd is what you get.  For some types of ...
  • Take almost any lens in good light on a M with live view; the lens sharpness will beat the same lens on a dsrl where one has not micro adjusted the af properly.  Af speed is a whole different ...
  • As you said this is not a quality (image) fight nor about any of us current dsrl or mirrorless users.  It is not about high end users, professional or not. This is about Canon trying to grow their ...
  • If I was Canon I would try their strategy of providing less expensive more attracted beginner dsrl's/mirrorless to counter smartphone's eating into their camera sales.  But, I am not sure how ...
  • It will.  That is why in short order, in my opinion, canon will announce a replacement for the M5 maybe called M5II Bp
