  • I already had an EF 50/1.8 STM so this was a natural choice to use when I got the M6 II. My experience with it was not a happy one, however. When it focussed correctly the images were fairly sharp ...
  • Not clearly mentioned already is that the 28mm lens will give you better depth of field than the 100mm. As already mentioned consider an EF 50mm with extension tubes as a part-way option between ...
  • I’ve been doing a lot of remote control work in recent months and in my experience a few things can cause laggy performance: (1) some kind of hardware problem. If it works some of the time this problem ...
  • I can’t speak about CR2 files for the M5 but for CR3 files a suitable codec is available and described in the forum thread here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4488782 Worth loading this ...
  • I tried this with Lightroom 6.14 (the final non-subscription version) and it just complains about the file being damaged
  • I keep all the .CR3 files in a sub-folder to the folder where the ,DNG files are kept. When I shoot multiple frames on the same occasion I delete those I don’t want so I’m keeping perhaps 25% of ...
  • I use option 3 as, yes, the quality from a raw image is, over a range of images, significantly better than from a Jpeg. Things like: recovery of blown out highlights, better control of noise, more ...
  • I found the same as Sittatunga when using the Canon Connect app for remote control of stills shooting on an M6 II. The performance when the camera ran the wi-fi hub was much better than the ...
  • Congratulations on building a comprehensive set of native lenses. Great picture of them too. It shows the ludicrous size of the Sigma 16mm. It may be what’s needed to build a high performing f1.4 ...
  • It’s not clear to me why you want to use an M6 when you already have an R6. For portraits the M6 doesn’t really bring anything extra to the party, especially considering the $$$ involved in buying ...
  • Going back to the original question, if Canon released an APS-C RF camera I would ignore it. I already have a full frame EF outfit and the M system meets the need for carrying a system which is ...
  • Regarding memory cards and burst shooting with the M6 II. I shoot a lot in H+ mode at 200 ISO and normally only get a maximum of 23 shots before the buffer fills and the shooting rate slows ...
  • Far too big and heavy for me. 72mm filter thread !  Makes a nonsense of having a small and light camera body. If it was an f2 lens or even f2.8 and around the size of the EF 24mm/2.8 (non-IS) that ...
  • Photoshop can't read the CR3 files because your version of Camera Raw is too old. If you are using CS6 or older - versions that are paid for up front, not per month - you can never upgrade it to ...
  • You’re going to struggle. All mirrorless cameras guzzle batteries, in my experience much faster than equivalent SLRs with a traditional viewfinder and the LP-E17 in the M6 ii isn't great for ...
  • Going back to the original question I’ll echo what some others have said. The Canon 32/1.4 is excellent at near enough all apertures. The Sigma 56/1.4 is fantastic. Very sharp and contrasty. At the ...
  • I’ve done a couple of shoots recently and made a note of the figures so I can post accurate information to this thread. Canon LP-E17 battery used, newly recharged. All shots taken outdoors in ...
  • Already mentioned but I would have thought you’d get a better view using a tablet or phone with the Canon Connect app to connect to the camera using Wi-Fi. Admittedly some information from the ...
  • I’m shooting in a remote control scenario with Wi Fi active and mostly firing in bursts of 10 to 20 shots. Camera is powered up for at most 10 mins. If a longer period of Inactivity is needed I’ll ...
  • I’ve been using the M6 ii for a couple of years. Great camera but the battery life sucks. It needs a fresh one after about 200 – 250 shots. My biggest gripe about the M6 ii is that you get little ...
