Taken with Magic Lantern Focus stacking, 5D MarkII and Sigma 150(non-IS). It is quick to do a stack, probably good for insects.

That is an incredibly good Image, well done, honestly one of the best I've seen on CR, completely wowed me.
Thanks!

It's pretty buggy,
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8347.0 and the interface turns off after 5 seconds but the Frames Per Second feature is useful, plus focus peeking, zebras
 etc.

Some lens repair data. I have had both the Sigma and the Canon. I found the bokeh on both to be good for a wide angle but worse than most fast lens 50mm or above. The Canon has terrible CA and LoCA and not great aperture shape, the Sigma is nervous. The Canon focuses faster in good light and much faster in low light, in the dark I could get the Canon to focus sometimes, Sigma not as much. In decent light my Sigma focuses accurately(5D MarkII I mostly use centre point then crop, or slight recompose)The Sigma is sharper, noticeably. The Sigma "feels" well built and mine has been working just fine, but the Canon feels and works a little quicker and lighter in the field, plus it's weather sealed I think.

Canon EF-S and EF-M Lenses / Re: Canon EF-M 11-22mm f4-5.6 IS STM

I have been doing some night shooting with my 11-22. Compared to the 17-40 on a 5d2 it's a little sharper, but it doesn't deal with the lights in the frame nearly as well.

EOS-M / Re: Is the canon eos-m a dead end system?
« on: February 18, 2014, 11:21:43 AM »
What killed the first EOS-M for me was that it couldn't be used in tethered mode. I'm not sure why that was not possible - unless it was done on purpose to not compete with the dSLRs. The EOS-M2 supposedly can do it, but not sold. I think it would make a great camera for remote control (with an external power supply). Ok, it's a niche market perhaps, but each feature one eliminates results in more lost sales.
+1, unfortunately I bought one before I figured this out. Waiting to see if Magic Lantern can maybe come up with something, although their support for the m is pretty low.

It was a RAW, I tried it in Capture1, same thing.

Too bad, not extremely useful for backlighting. The flare, or reflections, happen quite often in back lit photos, although the grid like pattern occurs less often. Notice how the purple color is very wide spread.

I think I have to disagree, heres a 100% crop of what I'm talking about. That's not lens flare. Also based on the color of the flare it really looks like sensor refections to me. It's quite apparent in a lot of back lit photos, I've owned  a 10D, 40D, XTi, 5d Mark 2, T3i, and a few more, I've never seen anything like this except for photos from the M.

I was using the 40mm pancake with no filter. I don't believe it is lens flair, I've seen tons of lens flare using this on my 5D 2 and never had the grid like pattern. It seems similar to this

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Sensor reflections from eos-m
« on: January 22, 2014, 12:03:56 AM »
I've heard that some of the M4/3rd's and Sony Nex(Alpha) suffer from reflections from the sensor. I've had an Eos-M for a couple of months and have seen my first example of it from the M. I'm just wondering if anyone else has come across it, and if it will be a problem across all the short flange digital systems?
Cheers,
Cinto

Actually after taking a look, it seems you've blown the highlights by having your flash too close? and tried to recover with a pink overlay? Maybe not highlights cause its in a weird place? You definitely did something dirty though.

Ps. You should check your red channels on your histogram they look really
 blown out. or maybe you've just pushed everything to red and your whites are way off? either way the pink in the rose doesn't look good.
