  • Welcome to the club.  I've gone through a very similar evolution as you.  Besides the responses and advice you've already gotten, I'd say take a look at the sigma "trio" of EF-M lenses.  I own the ...
  • Thanks.  I try not to be "that guy" looking at 100% crops :-D I think the only reason I'd want to move from APSC to FF would be for astrophotography, shooting long exposures at high ISO.  But, even ...
  • How would you say the RP compares to M6 ii wrt high ISO noise?
  • Yeah, that's what I was driving at, and trying to understand, when I asked what was meant about "lost reach".  It seems like -- currently -- there is a mismatch in that requirement between the FF ...
  • When you say "lost reach" are you talking about the "end-to-end" reach of the lens?  Meaning the difference between its widest focal length and its longest telephoto? I'm just trying to understand. ...
  • Yeah, I suppose there are many reasons why one would choose one brand or one camera system over another. That's why it's a challenge -- and, hopefully fun too! Look how long this thread is, with ...
  • Wow, what are you shooting at 2000mm?  Do you have any examples?  I'm just curious to see the application of that focal length and what the results are.  Thanks.
  • I have been so far.  And, based on your comments above, it sounds quite useful -- in a small number of situations.  (Makes me wonder why so many see it as such a huge shortcoming.  Maybe because ...
  • Awesome images, R2!  The BIF photos seem super challenging, and the M6ii -- and its photographer -- seems to have handled them just fine!  I'm pretty sure I would struggle mightily with my M5, and ...
  • I'm hoping so, too.  The size and price point make it a really enjoyable system for me.  I'm tempted by the M6ii.  You, and others, make it sound like a great camera and a significant improvement ...
  • Thanks.  That does give me some perspective -- and potential options, should I decide to move in the R direction.
  • It's a fair question. I think the FF sensor would perform better for astrophotography (and maybe in general in low light?) -- less noise at higher ISOs. I also assume I'd like to upgrade -- at some ...
  • I'm glad to hear it!  Misery loves company, after all!  :-D
  • It seems like it will be difficult for me to replicate my M5 kit in FF without spending a ton of money -- due to the much greater price of RF lenses.  Am I wrong? I use an M5, primarily with the ...
  • Created discussion thread "Fast" zoom
    Hi, I see a lot of wishes for a "fast" eos-m zoom.  And I'd love to own one myself!  Something like, I don't know, a 14-45 f/2.8 -- give or take, a 24-70 equivalent.  Or, even faster than f/2.8, if ...
  • Replied in RP or M6 mk II
    How does the M6 mk ii perform noise-wise at higher ISOs? I'm an M5 user, and I'm generally very happy with it. But I find it to be pretty noisy at higher ISOs. I guess a FF sensor would be much ...
  • Sure.  Or just one more word, "Sony". Sony wasn't making cameras when I was a kid.  They sure are now.
  • FWIW, I love my M5/Sigma 30mm combo!  It's light, compact, and most importantly, I love the results.  Here's one sample image below (I think I posted this same, recent image in a different thread, ...
  • Is there a technical reason M and R cameras couldn't have been designed to use the same lens mount, much as previous DSLR lines -- FF vs. cropped -- share EF lenses?  In this case, is the distance ...
  • Replied in Pine Stand
    Nice, I like it :-) I find a couple of the "lines" in the clouds in the upper left to be slightly distracting.  But in general, I like the way the wispy cloud lines draw my eye to the subject. The ...
