  • I love my sigma EF-M 30 and 56 f/1.4s. And I especially love that they perform so well at a reduced price compared to the Canon 32mm (not sure there's a Canon EF-M equivalent to the 56mm). I'm not ...
  • Sorry, that final paragraph should have read: It's almost like you'd like to be in Aperture Priority but rather than having ISO fixed and shutter speed adjust, you'd like to have shutter speed ...
  • I was wondering about this question, and I found this thread.  I've never used Auto ISO, but I was reading how it may be useful when lighting may be changing (e.g. street photography) and you just ...
  • Replied in Sigma 100-400
    Thank you for that information. I had read that the Sigma doesn't have tripod mount option.  I don't think that would hinder me, though it would be a shame to not have the option if I ever wanted ...
  • Replied in Sigma 100-400
    Thanks a lot.  That's a good resource.
  • Replied in Sigma 100-400
    Thanks for the information and ideas.  I have been searching for comparative reviews, etc.  It feels like Tamron gets overlooked vs Sigma.  So it makes me hesitant to consider the Tamron.  Though, ...
  • Replied in Sigma 100-400
    Not surprising Canon would make one for RF but not M.  But, like you said, we can dream :-D I appreciate the M series -- as does everyone, I think -- for it's size, weight, and convenience.  I ...
  • Created question thread Sigma 100-400
    Would it be physically possible for Sigma (for anyone) to manufacture a 100-400 (like this one) for EF-M? Or does the M mount size prohibit it? Also, it seems like one can buy a new Sigma 100-400, ...
  • Congratulations on your 'R'! I'll be really curious to hear your impression of going from APSC to FF. My thinking has been pretty similar to yours, except I just haven't pulled the trigger on ...
  • I've just ordered the 11-22, based on how everyone in here raves about it. I saw a recommendation in one reply for the 32mm f/1.4, which everyone raves about. I'm sure it's fantastic. I own the ...
  • I agree, for sure. It seemed like "crippled" was a pretty strong word, so I wondered why that might be.
  • Thanks for providing that list.  I guess I'm either not bothered by, or maybe don't understand, the majority of them :-D EVF: agree, but wonder how much it will matter to me.  I may try to ...
  • Thanks for the tip :-)
  • That seems to be the sentiment of many in here.  I'm considering upgrading my M5 to an M6 mk ii.  I'm with many, and I'd love a fast standard M zoom.  I guess Fuji, and maybe Sony, offer that. I'm ...
  • Thanks for the info, Randy.  I guess it's kind of what I thought.  It's just that now I'm anxious -- and impatient! -- so we'll see if I can wait :-D -Ira
  • Created question thread Canon refurbished - availability
    Kind of regretting not jumping on a refurbished m6 mk ii while they were in stock last week. I've never bought a canon refurb before, but it sounds like everyone here who has has had a good experience.
  • Thank you both for the tip.  I of course know B&H and Adorama, but I wasn't aware of mpb. I've got my quote ready now, just convincing myself to do it!  I've got a decent amount of gear that's been ...
  • Do you see an analogy where the M bodies map to the Rebels, and a new crop R body maps to the mid-range 70D, 80D, 90D?  Or maybe the M6 mk ii fills some of that space already?  The M6 mk ii seems ...
  • Created question thread Best place to sell camera body/gear
    Hi, I'd like to explore selling my M5 body to upgrade to the M6 mk2.  I'm tired of reading in here how much fun the M6 mk2 is.  Now I want one! I suppose I may get/keep more of the money if I try ...
  • Thanks, yeah, I guess that does put it in perspective. Naive question then: hypothetical exposure, f/7.1, ISO 400 ... will those result in different shutter speeds one FF vs crop bodies? I think I ...
