  • This is an age old difficult question a lot like "Which is the best for computing,  Windows or Apple". People have strong opinions on the topic, some based on experience but a lot are based on ...
  • It's a good price, I ordered the one for the RF mount camera as I have the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 which does not give the option for front mounted screw on filters. An VND is useful for softening ...
  • Just a few from dinner out the other night. Canon M5 with the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens.
  • Really nice work!
  • I'm still not over them discontinuing the EOS-1V SLR!
  • For now I am not planning on changing away from the M system as it is only a part of my gear collection. I own 2 M5 bodies and 3 EF-M lenses. I own a Canon R and an R7 and also own an older 7D ...
  • My granddaughter is a cheerleader and friends with most of the boys on the football team so she "volunteered" me to take some pictures. I asked the athletic department for a field pass. These were ...
  • I was doing a routine cleaning of my gear and found what I think is a tiny spot of fungus on the inside of the rear element of my Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II lens. At first I thought it was a speck of ...
  • I got a few RF lenses when I got my Canon R but those really didn't replace any EF lenses, i.e. I didn't own the EF 24-105 but got the RF model. I guess the first lens I actually replaced was the ...
  • Replied in M5?
    I concur with others who point out it was released 6 years ago. That being said I own 2 M5 bodies. I started with the first M camera that came out years ago but my older set of eyes don't do as ...
  • Not sure why some have such a disdain for Ken. He was one of the first to start up a camera gear review website and after all these years still publishes new reviews and posts on an assortment of ...
  • Interesting. I shoot several times a week with one or both of my M5 cameras and have not had this happen and I live in hot humid Houston where the asphalt on the highways can melt in the summertime! ...
  • Replied in R7 fly-by
    OK, first of all I really don't care if the OP responds to my comment or not. I don't rate my photographic self worth on what I have posted at DPR over the years. Second, I am not sure what we are ...
  • This is a really nice shot, great composition, exposure and colors.
  • One of my favorite lenses for when I am on city walkabouts. I used the Neural Filers in Photoshop here, depth blur as I recall  or something like that. Sort of gives it a Lensbaby look. Things are ...
  • Here is my take based on my needs and situation since everyone is different. I'm a retired commercial photographer who shot film for 45 years using cameras from 35mm to 8x10. Switched to digital ...
  • Every year in December, Galveston holds a Dickens on the Strand. People dress up in period clothing, vendors are there as well as musical groups and other performers. Here are a few from 2021. All ...
  • Created discussion thread Happy Birthday to Me!
    My birthday is later this month and I have been wanting to get the RF 16mm lens. I'm in a local community camera club and someone contacted us wanting to just give away a Nikon F4 and 2 nice ...
  • I own both but have never used the 24mm on any of my M bodies but only on my 7D MkII occasionally. The build quality and feel is very similar. Both focus quickly, are small and lightweight and ...
  • I think it's worth mentioning that Tony and his wife's main goal is to make money and they seem to do pretty well at it with all their social media feeds and sponsors, books and tutorials. I find ...
