EOS-M / Re: Arca Swiss plate for EOS M
« on: July 10, 2013, 11:37:34 AM »
I do have the RRS B26 plate for the base of the EF Mount Adapter (haven't bought a dedicated one yet, just 'borrowed' the one from my camcorder), it's a bit bigger than the foot but will work well with an adapted lens that doesn't have a collar of its own.

Here's the RRS B26 plate on the EF Mount Adapter.

I too saw the manual and skimmed thru it. also it has a AUTO ISO feature.  looks like Canon is adding some 5D/7D/1D features to the 70D. 

What do you mean by 'a AUTO ISO feature'?  Auto ISO is available on pretty much every Canon camera with a digital sensor.

Just chatted with B&H...  Something wrong with the link...  They are looking into it...

There's nothing wrong with the link.

Note the following:

The sales continue from B&H Photo beyond the Canon lens rebates. The following three lenses are on sale for a limited time.

The official Canon rebates ran through July 6th.  B&H discounted the lenses beyond that date for a couple of days, but now the 'limited time' is over...

EOS-M / Re: EF-M to EF Adapter Now Special Order

2. Some of us bought the M for use as a big sensor, pocketable point and shoot. Last thing we want is to slap on an adaptor, and then slap on a big hunk of glass and metal in front of that.

Some of us bought the M for use as a very small backup body to bring along in case the primary dSLR fails, and for that use the adapter is required.

But I do agree - for general use, I have no intention of putting the M+adatper behind my 24-70 II, 70-200 II, or 600 II (well, maybe that last combo one time as a novelty!).  For general use, a wider selection of EF-M lenses is needed (personally, I'd like to see a 50-1xx telezoom, in addition to more pancakes).

The front page of the manual refers to N and W versions.  I don't see such a designation in the preorder pages.

Those are country-specific - the WiFi version cannot be sold in some geographies.

Let's make it really interesting... rent the following gear:

a Nikon D800E and AFS 14-24mm f2.8G zoom;
a Canon 5D Mark III and... oh, rats - Canon doesn't have anything to compete with this - why bother.  :-X

Or how about:

a Canon 5DIII and TS-E 17mm f/4L;
a Nikon D800E and...

a Canon 5DIII and MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro;
a Nikon D800E and...

a Canon 5DIII and handholdable 600mm f/4L IS II;
a Nikon D800E and...

a Canon 5DIII and an f/1.2 prime lens;
a Nikon D800E and...

we could do this all day   ::)

What is H & G?

EOS-M / Re: EF-M to EF Adapter Now Special Order

Interestingly, it lists for $190 instead of the $150 it was a few days ago.
I guess they are partially covering for their "losses" on their recent EOS-M price of $299 ... I bet a lot of Canon dslr users have bought the EOS-M at $299 and I bet they would all want to use their existing EF/EF-S lenses with their newly acquired EOS-M ... Best time for them to sell the adapter at a higher price ... Smart marketing... I am sure they will sell like hot cakes.

Makes sense. Amazon price is creeping up, too.

EOS Bodies / Re: How good is 70D AF system compared to 50D?
« on: July 09, 2013, 11:19:59 PM »
Much better at servo tracking. Similar with one shot (too bad the 70D seemingly won't have Spot AF).

* Smaller and heavier then I anticipated. Heavy enough that I wouldn't want to use just a hand strap.

* I don't like that MF is disabled in AF and AF+MF (until after you AF and only while you hold the shutter). I realize the ring is electronically coupled, but I want a custom function where I can set it to always work if the camera is on. For that to be practically usable I suppose we would need to be able to move AF off the shutter button. That's fine with me, it's how every SLR I own is setup, and that red dot button isn't doing anything useful in still mode.

I frequently carry my 1D X + 24-70 II by just the handstrap.  ;)

You can set the M up with back-button AF (the * 'button') with C.Fn-5.

I wouldn't read much (if anything) into the special order thing.  The same thing happened when I was planning to get the Tripod Mount Ring C, and they're certainly not going to stop selling the 70-300L nor it's tripod ring. 

EOS-M / Re: EF-M 18-55 f3.5-5.6 IS STM or EF-S 15-85 f3.5-5.6 IS USM
« on: July 09, 2013, 09:02:37 PM »
My plan is just to see how it goes with the 22mm pancake.  I'm reluctant to buy the EF-M 18-55mm outright, since it's much cheaper in a kit.  So, if I'm using the M a lot, once the model with dual pixel CMOS AF comes along, that's when I'll get the EF-M 18-55mm, as a kit lens.  At that point, I'd consider doing a LifePixel IR conversion of the current M.

Quick question.  I've got a 70D on preorder with the 18-135 STM lens.  Should that lens work out of the box with the EOS-M?

No, you need the EF-M Lens Adapter to use EF-S or EF lenses on the EOS M.

Seriously?  I mean... REALLY?
Where am I???????????
I'm just completely baffled by your post.

You're posting on the Internet, where all people see are the words you write, with no way to convey tone or intent.

It's baffling to me that many people fail to consider the implications of their words, and are surprised when others are offended.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Camera AFMA changed itself?
« on: July 09, 2013, 05:10:39 PM »
I'm not sure how the single AFMA number in playback is determined when there's both body and lens adjustments - does it pick one or do a sum?

The AFMA setting has three options, 0: disabled, 1: adjust all lenses (the 'body adjustment'), and 2: adjust by lens.  So, the camera will apply whichever is selected.
