  • Wow, those are some great shots. I've been off my 100mmL since I shot some studio pics of models a couple of years ago, and noticed that the color rendition was markedly inferior to my 70-200/2.8L ...
  • In the search for low light options, after you have the M....  of course you'd give it a test drive if the option was there, even for curiosity alone....  but also of course, you wouldn't buy an ...
  • Yikes Marco....  so sorry to hear the nightmarish tale.  Hoping for a happy conclusion.
  • I took my EOS M(1) to a night time party, w low light, w my 50mm f/1.2L mounted, and it was impossible...  couldn't lock focus on very slowly moving chatting people.  Completely different ...
  • Not sure if you know this... I just found this out recently and didn't understand it...  but f2.0 full frame is NOT f2.0 on aps-c...  it is also subject to the 1.6x crop factor, so functions like ...
  • Or if you don't want to juggle, check the new yet to be officially announced G1X mark iii, whose specs are looking very M like indeed. Don't see the fnumbers on the 24-120mm ff equiv fixed lense ...
  • Yes...  fast prime threads make up lots of this forum... For me, the M5 HAS taken over my travel kit, and displaced my 5 series dslrs.  I tried w the M, but no love.  Alternately, the M5 has passed ...
  • Thanks!
  • So the answer on my ef M f 2.0 vs my ef 35 f2.0 is is that both lenses are effective f3.2 when mounted on the M5?  You have to multiply the focal length AND fnumber by the 1.6 crop.  That means in ...
  • so I think I get that...  is it also always 1.6x multiple, so f2.0 = f3.0?  Man... that means that all the current available "fast" glass on the M isn't comparably fast to my ff's.  Bummer. though ...
  • The M22 is the lens I'd recommend if you had only one lens...  it's fast, compact and excellent image quality.  It's a ff equivalent of 35mm, so a reasonable choice for fixed lens cameras.  It's ...
  • I think I finally get that we can't have smaller without some loss in performance... I always understood the crop in focal length translation between EF and EF-s...  but don't understand that there ...
  • Except again... looking like the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 is is about the same bulk as the L offerings at that speed. http://j.mp/2uHRU2g
  • Here's a link to graphics illustrating the relative size of the M5 with the adapted L 2.8 zooms vs the 5Diii with the same L zooms, and the Sony equivalents mounted on the Sony A7R ii. http://j.mp/ ...
  • BUT.... interesting that the Sony equivalent lens, show on an A7R II, is as big as the M5 w the Canon 24-70Lii WITH the adapter. So sony isn't able to be any more compact than Canon for these high ...
  • RIGHT!... even if you took the adapter off (for a comparison of "if Canon made this lens w an M mount") it looks way too big.
  • amen....  but w those two beautiful lenses, the system is no longer portable...  so again, I'd punt on the M5 and add my 5diii or 5dsr.
  • Not sure on the 24-70.... but the Sony 70-200 2.8 is almost identical to the Canon 70-200 L 2.8 is ii in size and weight. (I was surprised when I checked the specs) On the M5, you need the adapter ...
  • Thanks Dave.... THAT is pretty instructive. I was inclined to agree with faster meant ~too big~.... but hey, maybe not.  Can you add the ef 24-70L ii for comparison?
  • I grew up manual focus ...  Had the Canon T90 with fd lenses.  My last film camera was the eos3.... which I loved... and the autofocus of the eos system was such a watershed for me, that I ...
