This is something for FF folks. Enjoy it!

dopravopat: Slow, crappy lenses on a "premium" EOS M5. When will Canon offer something like the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 or 50-100 f1.8? Oh wait, they will charge abnormal prices for them anyway, why bother?

Tonkotsu Ramen:
Sigma is no longer an outsider, low quality 3rd party lens maker, but a top of the line manufacturer. What Canon should do is open the EOS M mount for everybody, give detailed specs of it and the communication protocols.

mosc:
I hope somebody will test how the two Sigmas I mentioned perform with the adapter on the EOS M5, as this is something I am really interested in.

Digimat: so mr. canon, all we need now is a snappy compact range of 15mm 1.8, 22mm 1.8, 33mm 1,8 and 52mm 1.8 prime lenses. dont take another 4 years please.

I just want Sigma to make the 8-16, 18-35 and 50-100 with EOS M mount....

"So, about those lenses..."

Please test how the camera performs with the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and 50-100 f1.8 (via adapter). How they focus in stills mode, if the stated "Image stabilization: Sensor-shift" works and how effective it is. I would really appreciate this, thanks.

dopravopat: If the camera works well with my Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and 50-100 f1.8 lenses via the adapter, including image stabilization using sensor-shift only, Canon has a buyer. Hopefully the Sigma 8-16 will work as well. The specs of the M5 are fine. ML would be nice too, as it provides useful still image features as well. I do not intend to shoot video. I am curious how the M5 will perform and how it handles 3rd party lenses.

Dpreview should correct their statement "Image stabilization: Sensor-shift" then.

dopravopat: Finally a really useless 4K video, when you can capture it only with a 1.64 crop factor. So if you want wide angle 4K video, you must attach the APS-C Sigma 8-16 on the EOS 5D Mk IV. Also, be prepared to shoot just 15 minutes on a single 64 GB CF card.

Yes, the 5 D Mk IV is a decent camera. You know what it would need to make it a great camera? Put a SONY sensor in it.

@Nobby2016

Pat yourself on the back for calling me an imbecile troll from the sony camp. Have you even checked my gear list? What I wrote is the result of the performance of Canon sensors in the last years and how they lack behind the competition.

Neat for cell phones. Probably not for enthusiasts who shoot RAW.

dopravopat: My father asked me to pick a good compact camera for him. I briefly considered the EOS M3. But ultimately discarded the idea, mainly because of the poor performance and very limited and slow lens line-up. Really, there is no decently fast workaround zoom. After doing some research I picked the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100. A camera introduced in 2014 and it outperforms the EOS M3 in EVERY ASPECT, except lenses. This is something Canon should really think about. The video quality they offer is appalling. The sensor is mediocre at best and AF performance weak. I much rather sacrifice the built-in crappy flash for a built-in EVF. I shot 2000 pictures and took a 6 minute long 4K video with the LX100 yesterday at a concert with one battery, shooting mostly ISO 400, 800 and 1600 as the sun set and stage lights became the only source of lighting. The quality of the files surprised me. If a compact camera from 2014 does better than the EOS M3, it does not deserve 75%. I would give less than 50%.

A fixed f2 35 mm eq. lens vs. a f1.7 - f2.8 24-75 mm eq. lens. No EVF aside from the expensive extra one. The lens adapter for 80 bucks? Is Canon f*cking kidding me, for that little peace of tube? What the EOS M3 system badly needs is much better lenses, possibly 3rd party - Canon should share the EOS M lens mount openly with everybody who wants tu build a lens, this might help. Also, the body needs badly a built-in EVF instead of the crappy flash.

Emadn13: why a sony user should buy this instead of 85mm f1.4 G master?,the king of sharpness,AF,and bokeh or even a zeiss 85mm f1.8 batis?

@Seeky:
Just get the Sigma 50-100 f1.8 then. Not for FF, but 95 mm should be usable on FF as well...

People who buy this lens probably have silver wires from their amp to their similarly overpriced hi-fi speakers. To play mp3s on them. And they buy this lens to shoot jpegs out of the camera anyway. No doubt there is a market for such products.

dopravopat: Has something changed, or do sensors still have f1.8 microlenses? If they still have them, then the only benefit of a faster than f1.8 lens is shallower DOF, but not lower noise.

@John C Tharp:
OK, maybe it is not the microlenses, but something on the sensor, or before it, has the effect that only all light coming from an f1.8 or slower lens, or stopped down to more than f1.8, is captured. Having a faster lens would not give a brighter image on a DSLR, if the ISO value were really the same. Of course the cameras keep reporting whatever ISO you set them to, but they rise it without your knowledge to compensate for the fact that the sensor cannot handle the extra light from superfast lenses faster than f1.8. Even RAW files are affected by this and the only way to see a difference is because the camera is rising the sensitivity. But if oyu manipulate the camera into thinking no lens is attached and take shots af f1.4 and f1.8, you get images where you see that there is no real brightness difference between f1.4 and f1.8, only shallower DOF af f1.4.

@Dr_Jon:
I can do the experiment once again, under controlled conditions. As far as I remember, also the pixels in the center of the frame were not as bright at f1.4 as one would expect. The pixels near the corners must have been worse off, but this is not normal lens vignetting. Also, the EOS 60D with the Sigma 50 mm f1.4 does not have any peripheral illumination correction and I shoot RAW anyway. I already sold my Sigma 85 mm f1.4 so I cannot do the experiment with it, but I expect it would give similar results.
