  • Great story!  Manny is sure a beautiful duck.  Your images are great too.  Thanks for the update, Casey.
  • Great images, Casey.  I think your M5 is getting a good workout.  I'm impressed with the detail you got. As for Mandarin or Wood Duck, the two are the only ducks in the Aix genus and are often ...
  • Yes, I'm wanting more m-lenses too, but I'm interested in longer focal lengths.  I know they'll be a bit bigger, but I'm looking for a 70-300 or a 100-400.  Other mirrorless companies have them ...
  • Thanks, Rick.  I didn't find the 77d until after I'd ordered the t7i.  They are very similar, although the 77d is a tiny bit heavier.  In looking at the specs, one wouldn't think the difference ...
  • Thanks, Mike, for pointing out the lack of the Sl2’s AF system with respect to being able to track moving targets.  I went back and re-read the review and see how I missed that the first time around.
  • Created discussion thread Sl2 or t7i with 100-400 ii
    I’m looking for lighter gear and recently switched to the M5 and 18-150 as my landscape and walkaround set-up.  I also shoot wildlife and birds with my 80d and 100-400 ii, but that combo is pretty ...
  • Thanks for the explanation.  I knew you could get the same kind of histogram in Live View, but I love it in the viewfinder.  I now understand why.
  • Created discussion thread Histogram in Viewfinder
    One feature about the M5 that I LOVE is having a small histogram in the viewfinder.  I can be a lazy shooter and ignore the histogram, but with it right there in the viewfinder, there’s no excuse ...
  • In no way is the M-series a dead end for enthusiasts.  As an aging enthusiast photographer, I've been seriously looking for gear lighter weight than my 80D + L lenses, including my 100-400ii.  ...
  • Yes, I've tried several micro 4/3 but I didn't find them suitable in IQ to my Canon.  I think the difference is in the larger sensor in the Canon m5.
  • Wow!  I can’t imagine my 100-400 on my M5.  Seems like things would be really out of balance.  Assuming you’re handholding the combo.
  • No.  The in-body IS is only for video on the M5.
  • No intention of letting go of my 80D.  Hope to use the M5 + 18-150 as my walkaround lens and focus on using my 80D + 100-400 ii for wildlife and birding.  Am well aware of the difference in ...
  • Great first posts!  Nice and sharp.  Love the one of your dog, especially.
  • I’m the sister, an 80D shooter, who’s tried many mirrorless cameras, all of the m4/3 variety. I’ve been searching for lighter gear as I’m aging.  None of the ones I tried measured up to my canon. ...
  • Replied in M5 or M6
    Thanks, everyone, for your replies to my questions.  I'd read a few of the former forum posts on the M5 and M6, but there were volumes of them so I resorted to asking what had probably been ...
  • Created discussion thread M5 or M6
    I currently shoot with an 80D, but am considering smaller gear as I age. Have read the reviews on the M5 and 6.  Seem very similar.  I would definitely get the optional viewfinder, if I chose the ...
  • Just got back from my first photoshoot with the Canon 100-400ii and I think it outperformed the Tamron.  I think the IQ is better and I was able to track the owl better when it took off.  Not ...
  • Sounds like some good ideas that I'll try.   I have a minimum shutter speed set with auto ISO of 1/500.  Wouldn't need to do that with the settings you recommend, would I?
  • Some great ideas.  I was also thinking of just leaving my camera set to Ai Focus.  I've never used it, but it says in that mode "if subject moves, auto-switches from one shot to Ai servo."  ...
