  • Replied in M2 CPU
    How do you determine what cores are doing what in Activity Monitor?  I haven't noticed anything that tells you that.
  • Replied in Why did ...
    Why did you rent the R7 with the 24-240? That's a full frame lens. Canon makes very nice RFS18-150 which is a fraction of the weight and a more suitable FL range for all around use. As someone who ...
  • Never mind.

  • I'm wondering what would be better; a M2 w 24GB or a M2 Pro w 16GB. The M2 w 24GB is actually $100 cheaper. The real value seems to be the M2, 16GB, 1 TB @ $1,199. It's $100 less than the M1 16GB, ...
  • One of the most interesting combos of FL range, aperture, size and cost out there. Using it on a high MP body could cover a lot of ground if one is able to crop a bit when needing longer FLs.

    IF...

  • Replied in More like ...
    More like a step sideways.  The RF 15-30 is really meant to appeal to those who would likely already own the 24-105 4-7.1.  I think it is a perfect compliment to that lens. I own both of the 24-105 ...

  • Need to clarify this a bit. 14-200 angle of view in FF terms? Canon RP is a good and underrated body. I've own or have owned a lot of m43 gear and I'll take the images coming from my RP over my ...
  • Replied in M5 Question
    Thanks.
  • Created discussion thread M5 Question
    Does anyone know if its is possible to charge the battery in a M5 via the USB port?  Thanks.
  • Replied in Charity ...
    Charity is the answer.  Donate it to charity.  It's old and falling apart.  If you haven't already discovered it, the IBIS ruins more shots than it saves.  I had one once and while I basically ...
  • If you're worried about total weight get the RF 70-200 4L IS (as you talked about in your post). I also own the m43 40-150 2.8 and while it is a fine lens the Canon lens is every bit as good (or ...
  • The EF 16-35 4L IS is a superb lens. If one is shooting a DSLR it is a no-brainer to get one. I've had one and used it on my R cameras and IQ wise it's great. It is however much longer and heavier ...
  • Wrong parallel.  In the old APSC DSLR world, the XXD cameras were a series where a bigger number represented the next (newer) camera in the line.  It was a replacement for the previous lower ...
  • Replied in Maybe, but ...
    Maybe, but they'll probably call something like that a R100 not R8.  Think along the line of a RF replacement for the M100/200 cameras. Flippy screen though (unfortunately) instead of tilt to ...
  • Well, if it's named 'R8' then it's pretty easy to guess.  It will sit between the R7 and R10 feature wise.  Probably have R10 sensor, R7 EVF and possibly (or not) have IBIS.  Body will probably be ...
  • Replied in I own ...
    I own and have owned many L lenses. I've got this really inexpensive 100-400 and it is an extremely impressive lens regardless off whatever is written on the side of it. Only downside is you have ...
  • And the iPhone is infinitely better at phone calls, texting, email, web browsing etc., etc., etc. Oh, and it works with my Apple Watch which is the best piece of tech ever invented. My R cameras ...
  • The RP and slower 24-105 weigh a good pound less than the R w L lens. The RP setup is easy to sling around my neck and walk around with, the R, not so much. I'll be using some sort of camera bag ...
  • Very good summation. Agree, but the RP has pretty good AF that is sufficient for most uses. Not too long ago it would have been considered fantastic but we keep moving the goal posts with AF ...
