  • Replied in M5 vs RX100V5
    On the M5 and the RX100v5, I limit my iso to 1600.  With the IS in the lens, I can get decent shots in relatively low light with both cameras.  The M5 is better.   The M5 has great skin tones.  I ...
  • I am on my third copy of this lens.  Never had to do this before but a lot of sample variance.  The third copy is very good.  Corners are never going to  be prefect but they are quite acceptable ...
  • Replied in M5 vs RX100V5
    I have the M5 and RX100v5.  I am a still shooter.  I just did a test today comparing the M5 with 28mm vs the RX100V5 in bright light.  I normally shoot RAW but I found the Sony JPEGs to be ...
  • Got my third copy of 15-45mm and it is quite good for a kit lens.  There is some softness in the corners but overall it is surprisingly good.  There sure is a lot of variance in quality of this lens. ...
  • The bag that I use for the M5 + 22m and it will also work for M5 + 15-45mm is the Lowepro Adventura SH100 II.  I do have the strap on the M5 which takes a little more space.  The bag is super ...
  • Created discussion thread M5 DPP and/or LR for processing
    On a recent post, a member suggested that I try using DPP to improve sharpness and detail on my 15-45mm.  So I downloaded DPP and starting using it.  My initial impressions are very good for ...
  • Correction.  DPP does appear to support the adapted lenses.  Now for the DPP learning curve.  I hope it is worth it.  I was just getting to know DxO.
  • Thanks for the DPP 4 Digital Lens Optimizer guidance.  I loaded DPP 4 and the lens profiles.  I think the Digital Lens Optimizer may have done the trick for my 15-45mm lens.  Like you said it is ...
  • My problems are with the edges and corners being very soft and blurry.  Overall the lens seems lower in contrast.  At 45mm the shortcomings are most pronounced.   This is my second copy.  Maybe I ...
  • Created discussion thread Quality Replacement for kit 15-45mm
    Alright, I have gotten spoiled by my 22mm, 11-22mm, 35mm f2, and 40mm pancake quality.  Is there any Canon standard range zoom lense that would have better image quality (contrast, sharpness ...
  • Replied in Canon m5
    I have not had the M5 for long but agree with all your points.  Just need a couple of more primes and zooms of the 22mm and 11-22mm quality.  I also recently acquired the 40mm, and the 35mm f2 ...
  • I have taken everyone's helpful input under consideration.  I purchased a used 40mm.  My first test shots impressed me with it's sharpness, contrast, and color.  It is a bit on the longer side for ...
  • Created discussion thread 40mm STM on M5 -- vs 50mm f1.8
    How is the 40mm pancake on the M5 vs 50mm f1.8.  Which is sharper, etc.  any other comments.  If you have had both, which one did you use more.  I have the 11-22mm, 22mm, and kit 15-45.  I just ...
  • Created discussion thread M5 Speedlite 270EX II High Speed Sync
    Looking at getting the 270EX II flash for my new m5.  Does High Speed Sync work with the M5.   Would like to use it for outdoor fill flash.
  • Created discussion thread M5 Settings for in Sharpening in Camera
    Alright, I popped for the M5 and need some help with the settings for in camera sharpening.  Like to know what you are using.  Also how I can set minimum in camera sharpening.  I may want to do my ...
  • I have the Coolpix A and the RX100m5 and have been comparing the two.  I also have a Samsung NX500 with pancake lenses.   In the end, it has come down to the one I put in my jacket pocket each day ...
  • Strange results.  I downloaded the latest version of DXO 11.  I can now see where my Rx100mV raw files are opened but the icon is there for you to download the module.  However, when you go to ...
  • Thanks for update.  Disappointed but maybe next time.
  • Created discussion thread No DxO support for RX100m5
    What happened to DxO support for the RX100m5.  The website used to say support would be available on 1/17.   Now the site shows unsupported and you have to submit the request for support.  And you ...
  • I tried the optical viewfinder on the Coolpix but did not like using it.  I use the LCD with a folding magnifier from www.clearviewer.com
