  • Trying to decide between the newer EF-S 35mm f2.8 macro with IS vs the classic EF f2 IS.  Of course, there is the one stop difference but I usually shoot people at f2.8 anyway for a bit more ...
  • I have the M5 and the SL2.  I keep the 11-22mm on my M5 at all times.  It is exceptional for wide angle and has IS.  My SL2 is my workhorse for everything else with the 40mm STM being by most used ...
  • On my SL2 my number lens is the 40mm stm.  I also have the 24mm STM and the 50 f1.8.  I do have the newer 35mm f2.8 macro and the 35mm f2.  I have not found the 35mm f2.8 macro to be as sharp as ...
  • I have also been searching for a better standard kit zoom for my M5. I do want a small light zoom. I have given up for now. I bought an SL2 and use my EF-S 24mm, 40mm, newer and smaller 35mm macro, ...
  • Beautiful!
  • I have compared my 18-56 on my TL2 to my 35 f1.4 and they are so close at f8 it is amazing and that is to the edges.  I shoot most of my outdoor shots at f8.  I was trying to leave the 35mm TL ...
  • This is great news.  Thanks for the update.  Did some test shots and am very impressed.  I used to think DPP did the best job with M5 files but for me Capture One is now my preferred RAW engine ...
  • Vikas, Thanks for the input.  It was your initial set of TL2 test shots at various ISO levels that helped make the decision for me to buy the TL2.  Thanks again for all our valuable input.
  • Vikas, I did a similar test with my new TL2 vs my T and agree with the results of about a two stop improvement in usable ISO for me.  I also appreciate the 1/40,000 shutter with the TL 35mm f1.4. ...
  • I have the same situation with my M5 and the 22mm.  I am sort of getting used to it being this way.  It is the only M lens that I have that is this hard to mount.
  • Alas got it working. Asus came out with a new BIOS and motherboard driver update.  That fixed the problem.  I really missed DxO.  DxO tech support  did really try to fix the problem but it was ...
  • Created discussion thread DxO Pro Not Loading W10
    For the past several months, I can only rarely get DxO to load on my Windows 10 machine. I see the DxO splash screen for a short time and then the splash screen turns black and it hangs. I do not ...
  • I have the Leica T and several TL lenses.  I am trying to decide to wait and buy the TL2 for the 24MP and mainly higher ISO capability.  On the T, I limit myself to ISO 1600 but have done limited ...
  • I am older and have the 22 and the 28mm with IS.  I now leave the 28 on the camera.  The IS is key plus the 28mm has really nice rendition and is very sharp.  My 22 stays in the bag.
  • I love the 28mm with IS.  F1.8 is fine but IS is key for my old hands.
  • 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 ...
