EOS-M / The promised pics of the 18-200 Tammy
« on: July 14, 2014, 05:27:32 PM »
Do not complain about the Picture Quality...this was done in the halftime break of the soccer world Championship final so not to much love was invested...

I do not know how to make my uploaded pictures apear in the text so I sumply describe them inthe order I attach them:

1. Family Picture: Tammy, 18-55, 11-22, 22
2. Tammy EF-M versus Tammy EF-S
3. Same but looking from the fan service perspective
4. Tammy EF-M versus Tammy EF-S with Adapter
5. 200mm at 1:6.3 Lightroom raw to JPG convert

A word about 5. 
The model is a DeutschDrahthaar puppy about 3 month old.
A sitting puppy besides a sleeping puppy is the only thingthe AF of the M can handle (at least in my Hands)
The missaligned framing is because of the in my SOS mail mentioned way the zoom operates:
Smooth but Ultra tight glide. From 18 to 200 mm means left Hand graps lens, right Hand graps M  twisted by 180 degree and than pretend you want to squeeze water out of a wet Jeans. Oh and for good measure the lens has a zoom lock switch...

Touching the lens gives you the feel that you use the Sigma 1:1.8 Art zoom (also from relative weight)
STM kind of drive is nicely smooth and silent, VCD is silent and fast. But... mounting the lens or switching the M on generates a sound which reminds of the initialising Phase of a flatbed scanner.

You can see this on the Picture: The lens is fat, unlike the Canon EF-M design the Tammy has a much bigger Diameter than the bayonet.

EOS-M / tamron 18 200 di iii vc SOS

Folks I need help

My tamron just arrived, it will focus it will use the vc function but the m will not take the picture. Using the buttpn will give the green frame but nothing happens. Using the touchscreen means the green frame will freeze and you have to take the battery out to clear the timeout.

Any ideas?

EOS-M / Both new tele zooms now listed at amazon Germany

Price for the Canon nicer than I thought, the Tamron not so cheap...

I went to some of the Hockey games of the world cup currently held at The Hague.
Only one guy walking around there with the long whites, all Nikon black...

I'm not a pro photographer and my knowledge about hockey is that it is usually played by humans in skirts carrying a stick in front of them.... So I went there as a spectator for the fun and for pictures of my family enjoying the game... still I got 2 times routed to the press area based on having the 200mm 1.8L mounted.

By the way that happened years ago already at a Bundesliga soccer match to me. (Got kicked out of the paparazzi area when I asked one of the pros which number Klinsmann was wearing)

This time I could not help myself but replacing the 60D I had at the 200mm with a red EOS M (lead to the same result as my Klinsmann question)

Anybody got similar 'upgrades' because of white lenses ?

Folks, can I use all the features of the GPS device when connecting it to the EOS M via USB cable?
I would like to do so because I want to mount a Flash as well.

Carying a Flash and the GP-E2 might look wiered but the M is my only EOS with GPS support.

Lenses / Dear Lord in case I die
« on: November 16, 2013, 06:44:09 PM »
please make sure that my wife does not sell my gear for the Price I told her that it has cost....

My wife is usualy scared by what I spend on Canon gear. I gained some Karma after selling some lenses but had to invest some of these Points when telling her that I Need to get a 50mm again.

I did not want to go again for the huge Sigma 50mm 1.4 so I went with ye olde EF 50mm 1.4 via eBay.
Came Close to divorce this morning when the mail man delivered this 50mm lens. The previous (private) owner sent this almost mint lens in ist original box together with the sun shade and used as the Transport protection the original box of a 5D Mark III Kit. My wife is not a market maven but she can smell if a box in her Hand has this 3000 Euro smell.

Anyone else had such a Kind of Situation before?

EOS-M / The rumored tele lens for the M
« on: September 21, 2013, 06:13:58 PM »
Whenever the new M is rumored also the new tele lens is rumored shortly after.

Especialy in this Forum I hear again and again that such a lens would make Little sense as by Definition such a lens Needs to be huge (compared to the camera) and that this misses the reason of existence for the M. Once that Argument is thrown into the Arena the usual comments either go towardes the 'I anyway just use the pancake'  or  'please give me another Xmm pancake'

Now to come to the Point:
Does Canon not have this DO technology? WHy should they not decide to make a lens with the 'beauty' of the 70-300 DO I mean fat and short? Maybe the guys here who can calculate the feasibility of an optical system better than me can tell me what is possible or impossible. A EFM 55-200 DO IS 3,5-5,6 only 1 centimeter longer but 2,5 cm wider  than the kit lens? DO would massaker the IQ but a System that would still fit in the pocket of a coat would be very sexy to me.
