Time to see if folks put their money where there mouth is... or not. Just for fun, no trolling please. :-)
Dear Surapon, is that lens FF compatible? I realize you have it on a FF body, but from what I've read, it sounds like there are dark borders on FF sensors? If not, that might be the lens I'm looking for - but if so, I'll wait for the 12mm.
Dylan, yes, it's for the 1D X. It's compatible in terms of fit, but the manual warns of metering and AF markings being off from the stock screen. There's no exposure compensation setting for it in the custom functions, so it's only semi-supported. Eldar & Edward don't report that being an issue, so I'm hoping that's the case as I really miss my Ef-S & Eg-S screens. Neuro pointed out some time ago that you can use the custom function to tweak the metering as well if it's an issue. There are custom screens available for the 5DIII as well.
Okay, Eldar beat me to the reply...and maybe the exposure difference will work out as I tend to overexpose nearly all of my photos by 2/3 - 1 EV for ETTR anyways
Just got the EOS M + 22mm. Like it and will keep it for the long term, so now need to think about accessories.
1. The Canon EF-EF-M adapter: I think of the M as a compact camera to carry everywhere, so I don't know how useful it will be to have the EF adapter and give up the whole compactness thing. Not that I will try to use the reach advantage and shoot birds, LOL .
So your opinion will be really useful to inform me of advantages I am overlooking. How many of you use the adapter regularly with EF lenses? Which EF lenses do you mostly use? Is that still true if you have a second body?
Retro lovers: is it better to get a FD 50mm and an adapter instead? If so, which 50mm- there seems to be a bunch of them out there (I mean 1.8s and 1.4s, the 1.2s are too expensive and my manual focus capabilities with the M are untested and with regular dSLRs are ok, not stellar!
I like the 80-85mm-ish focal length a lot for portraits and don't have that FL for full frame unless I am lugging my 70-200 II.
2. Wrist strap: I thought of getting a grip for the M, but I am not sold on the metallic grip- once again because it will increase bulk. Here again, those who bought the thumbs up and grip for the M, how useful do you find it?
Is there any wrist strap that works particularly well with the M? I am aware I will have to switch out the neck strap to use the lug connector.
3. Batteries: Wasabi, is it? Any other options? How long is it safe to run the M continuously? If an hour or so (in the mandatory 29.99 minute chunks) is ok, I will use this as my primary video cam.
4. Bag: Neuro earlier had mentioned the Dashpoint 20. Any other suggestions?
Thanks, all, in advance.
Personally the Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II intrigues me. Why? How good will it be? How much will it cost?
However, the lens I'm most interested in is the Samyang 12mm f/2.8 Full Frame Fish Eye. I'd like a fisheye but the Canon 8-15 seems way too expensive for a lens I won't use a whole lot. If the Samyang is cheap (~$200-350 US) and decently sharp, I'll pick one up for sure.
The other lenses don't excite me at all.
I might have a gene or two dedicated to sadism, but this was both educational, and fun. There are explaining videos, as well as photo and video from the project.

I've been told real photogs don't crop. Is this a remnant of over 60 years old from the good old analog film days? I are these clueless youngsters simply not able to frame in camera?
I've tried to include all possible reasons for (not) cropping I can imagine, I hope it's not too much clutter. If I still should have forgotten something or simply voting is too limited feel free to elaborate in the thread!
This is a re-issue of an older discussion thread of mine, but now as a poll. I hope a lot of people vote again, I find these results very interesting to get an idea about how other people work.
Hello fellow CR folks!
I have been wondering if there is any way to extend the life of my flash while I'm at an event.
The main issue is during the reception. I am always very selective in the shots I take, but when I fire the flash, I expect it go. As the night goes on, the flash begins to hate me more and more. Primary flash heads are the 600EX-RT's if that makes any difference at all.
Thank you for any advice you have.
Wow ! Discovered because the Japanese do not participate in Canonrumors. Canon, heartless company spies on its employees and threatened their lives if some information leak in Canonrumors. I think the only Japanese citizens who are not spied on, are employees of Nikon, always write here about the benefits of DR at low ISO.As for the lack of Japanese, maybe Canon has asked the Japanese government to block this website - sort of like the China's Great Firewall.Actually the real reason would be interesting (I've studied sociology, so I always like to know about these things). The Japanese internet seems to be somewhat separate from the rest of the world just by language and culture. For the same reason, I very much doubt the Japanese Canon engineers are really interested about what the rest of the world wants from them (more dr!), or so it seems.
India/Asia added! Been on the road. Travelling. I'm glad everyone is enjoying the thread!
I have far too much gear and far too little time to shoot, so I would like to specialize. How have those of you who specialize in one area found that specialty?
