Hello! This is my first post on DPReview Forums! My question is, i have a Viltrox EF-M to EF mount adapter for my EOS M50. What I am curious about is what lens has better image quality, the native 15-45mm, or the adapted 18-55mm lens. Not having the 15mm doesnt bother me as i dont go that wide, and not having 55 is fine for me as i am already used to using a 50mm 1.8 EF, i mainly want to use the better of these two lenses for the focal lengths in the middle being 22mm and 35mm most of the...

I'd like to know if I am doing something obviously wrong and how to correct it or is it not possible to get a sharp image with the M50 or with the lens. I am using "EOS M50", Lens "EF-M15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM"  with a "Godox Thinklite TT350" ON- camera flash with a diffuser .... I took several pictures in low light @ 1/125, F5.6 and ISO 200. When I auto focus on the subject's face  using Face detection + Tracking AF mode, the focus rectangle shows up on the face after which I click the...

Hi, I'm shooting at night with long exposures and to get overall sharp image I'm using fairly large aperture f5 ~ f22. So to get rid of those unwanted aperture blade stars around direct lights I'm trying to use fog filters. The problem is that many times fog filters produce some weird light grain instead of smooth gradient light. Please see attached images for examples. Is this sign of bad quality fog filters or I am missing some technique ? I bought old Hoya A+B kit...

Hey there, I have a Canon M50 with a EF lens adapter. At the moment I also have the 15-45 EF-M and a 55-250 EF-S lens. In a few weeks I am about to make a video in which it would be quite convenient to not be having to swap between lenses all the time, so I want to know what you think the best wide range zoom lens (mirrorless or DSLR) you can get for Canon? I live in Australia as well. I don't have a large budget also... Thanks in advance, Joe

Hi folks. I have a Canon EOS-M50 which I bought with the 15-45mm kit lens. This didn't come complete with a hood (why not?) and the hoods are expensive for what they are. I'm about to pull the trigger on the 22mm f2 prime and I've read that it has a hood available too. Am I going to need it? I don't notice the lack of a hood being a problem with the kit lens so is it likely to be a problem with the 22mm? I know, more or less, how to avoid lens flare and I also know how to use it to my...

Hey guys! I've been wanting to get an M5 in place of my Rebel T4i, but every time I get hold of my old Canon I come to realize I can't let go of it. So I've decided to get a compact travel camera for landscape and casual shooting. Also, I've not used video on my T4i for all the four years I've owned it.Now the main issue is should I pay the extra 30% for a Canon M6 or will an M3 meet my needs? I take it, M6's key advantage is the improved DPAF. I'm gonna get a 15-45 kit lense and a 22/2...

By "doomed" I mean:"Will I have to buy it because it's the best camera to fit my needs?" Quick explanation: I use my 6D during all kinds of trips. This poses a couple of issues though: a) For cycling+hiking trips carrying the 6D, a couple of lenses (usually 17-40 and 70-300L) and tripod is a pain. These are my most common trips, and more often than not I decide to leave the camera at home, or maybe just bring a lens with me to (kinda) reduce weight b) I have a long commute by bicycle and bus...

Bought the M5 15-45 kit during Easter sale (price for body only is the same).  Already own the 11-22mm, 22mm, ef 50mm 1.8, ef-s 15-85mm and 55-250mm with the original M and 50d. Looking to have the original M as my astro + backup camera, M5 to be the main travel/walkabout camera.  Also planning to buy a 6d or 6d mk2 and sell the 50d for shooting events that the mirorrless can't handle (yes, moving to ff). Any suggestions on which lenses to keep?  Probably obvious that I'm more into landscape...

Hi All, My main camera is a Nikon D750.  I am looking to replace my current second camera used for anytime I dont want to bother with my D750.  At the moment am not needing or considering a system change as the D750 does what I need. I am thinking of selling my Sony RX-10 ii mostly to get a larger sensor better performance My budget is under $1,200 ideally as I dont want a huge investment in what the purpose of this second camera should be. Now some more disclosure I did buy the Panasonic...
