I see more advantage in APS-C by allowing wider depth of field. In addition, the articulated LCD touch screen makes it easy to work in unusual angles.+1
My ER-E1 was under $30. (¥2900) bought on amazon.jp - is it really $50 in the US? Seems a bit steep. Usually stuff over there is cheaper.
It's not available from retailers in North America, has to be bought from HK (e.g., DigitalRev) or the UK.
I just tried my Canon 50/1.4 with the EF-M and turned off the continuous AF feature as it was hunting around like crazy. The few test shots I did seemed to hold promise and it is indeed a nice portrait length.Where are 135 2.8 and 85 2.0 and 50 1.4 for M? Come on Canon, we need some nice primes!Yup
I don't see a lot of EFS primes so I'm not really surprised by the lack of EFM primes.
EFS primes don't make much sense to me (except a dedicated macro which they already made) but EFM primes would be small and that is a pretty clear advantage for the M system. Just look at the 22mm f/2, it's tiny. A 35 or 55 prime could be enticing if they were fast primes like 1.8 or even 1.4 (though I doubt it would be 1.4). I think a prime in the portrait range would be ideal to compliment the 35mm fov from the 22/2.
FWIW the FD 50/1.4 works really nicely on the M via adaptor. It's a nice focal length but the lack of AF can make it a tricky lens to use when taking pics of moving subjects. That's why I want to see a 50ish prime for M with AF.
@Surapon - nice shots. What lens did you have on the M at the time?
Dear friend Jamesy.
on all trip= Out door shooting = EF-M 18-55 mm. IS with Cir. PL. 52 mm Hoya filter all the times, Hoya Cir. PL filter for the high contrast in colors. Yes, On the Airplane, I use Rubber Hood 52 mm. and close to the airplane's glass window to protect the light from inside the cabin not get the reflection in my photos.
But indoor shooting, I change the Lens to EF-M 22 mm. F/ 2.0.
Nice to talk to you.
At 460 grams (1.01 lbs), it is 200 grams (0.44 lbs) heavier than the EF-M 55-200, but you get the 18-200mm range.
Will be interesting to see how the reviews stack up between the two.
p.s. I wonder if we'll see anything from Tamron at the other end of the range soon.
While we're at it what do you think of the X100S?I think the X100s is a great camera - I have shot one recently and also the X-T1 and X-E2 - all of which I considered before getting my EOS-M/18-55 kit. The EOS-M suited me from a price and compatibility and IQ standpoint and really enjoy using it even though the AF is brutal at times.
Hopefully Sigma will now produce lenses for the M. I thought it was interesting with the timing of this release in that Canon released its telephoto zoom just 48 hours prior approx.Agreed. I think the M form factor is the perfect market for an all-in-wonder type of walk-around vacation lens and no different at the long end at F6.3 than the newly announced 55-200 EF-M. I just got my 22/f2 yesterday and am quite impressed with the IQ and size and the M is now almost a constant companion whereas my 5D3 was/is far more of a conscious decision to bring along.
If the quality of the lens at least on par with the quality of the EF-M 18-55mm, I think many will be on board with Tamron's super zoom offering.
