EOS-M / Re: EOS M Autofocus Performance Won't Improve via Firmware [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 07:12:55 AM »
I have to admit, that the AF keeps me away from the EOS M, too.
Although... what remains is the fact that - unless you use a pancake - the thing is pretty bulky. So if you really want a pocketable camera I'd rather go for a Sony RX100
Hope Canon will improve the AF AND produce a pancake zoom - then I'd seriously start thinking about an M

What I don't understand is the critzcism about the 6D - AF... what I read is that it really performs well - it just sounds pretty shitty on the datasheet due to the limited number of (Cross-Type) Sensors...

Always the same position or did you keep moving during the event

First of all: great shots - thanks for sharing.
What is much more interesting than any kind of technical data... where have you been positioned to get this kind of shots? Somewhere on a mountain top or inside a helicopter or what?

BTW... the 35/2 IS sounds nice... only depends on the price tag. Since I am not too happy with my Sigma 30/1,4 this could become my lightweight Crop-"50mm" lens - the 35/1,4L is way too bulky

I'd love if Canon made a 24-105/2,8L IS... I think I would even pay 3k for it...

I seriously like the extra reach of the 35mm, which translates into the subject being nearly twice as large in the frame over 70mm...
Same here... I was thinking a let whether to get the (old) 24-70/2,8 or the 24-105/4. I did not buy a new one and the prize tag on the used marked was pretty much the same these days (+/-50€).
There were 3 reasons for the 24-105
1) smaller (ok, the 24-70/4 will be even smaller a bit)
2) IS (ok, the new one will have that one, too)
3) the range

I am using the lens on both - 7D and 5D2 - I definitly would not want to miss the extra 35mm - no way going back to a shorter lens. And for sure I will not run around with the bulky 70-200 in order to get the extra 35mm. Whith this lens I do like 80% of my shots. And ven if I took a 70-200 with me - I love the little overlapping... this means that you don't need to switch lenses more often than necessary. I learned this when I used the combination 7D + 10-22 + 24-105. I got mad, having the switch like every 5 minutes when I was on holiday...
With some overlapping focal range I probably would have saved like 50% of lens swaps...
