Dear Friend DPP.
One thing that you need to know, If you crazy like me, who use Big " L " Lenses with EOS-M----We can not use the Arca Swiss plate at the EOS-M body---We will damage the bottom part of the tiny body, because the Big "L " Lens are so heavy and might shear off/ or damage the Tiny body of EOS-M.
You need to spend $ 5 more Dollars to buy extra Arca Swiss plate to mount on the Lens adaptor
Yes, All of my Big " L " Lenses have the spare Arca Swiss plates and ready to roll.
Not completely relevant to the thread, but I said I'd follow up. Like the 17-40mm f/4L, the 16-35mm f/4L IS has no vignetting at 20mm and above with an B+W XS-Pro clear filter, wide angle Lee adaptor, Lee filter holder with two slots and a 105mm adaptor, and a B+W 105mm extra wide circular polarizer. My 24-70mm f/4L IS is good at 24mm.
If Canon is listening....................... Touch screen is nice, but there has to be a way to turn it off and on without turning off the camera. I
Apparently, someone heard you, because on my G1X MK II, I have set the "Display Off" function to the shortcut button by using the custom menu settings. That turns it on/off with a button push.
I can also turn off/on the touch screen function in the settings.
My EOS M will be arriving in a day or two, and I'd like to get it paired properly with a small, arca swiss compatible plate that doesn't extend way past the body (like a typical DSLR plate would on the M)
Any one out there happy with the one they are using? I'd like to keep it semi permanently attached to the camera, so not blocking the battery door is a must.
Here is another option that fit your EOS-M need for both additional grip and Arca-Swiss Plate---And Cheap too.
I don't use UV (protection) filters on my 40/2.8 pancake or on my EF-M lenses, but I do on the all the others that take them.
Crap, that technically should change my vote. I am answer #1 above, but the pancake is an exception.
I didn't know there is video feature on 5Dstarted on the 5D2...1920x1080
My first post may be nothing new, but I was wondering if I am the only EOS M owner who is aware of the extreme benefits of Custom Function C.Fn IV / C.Fn-5 1: taking the AF function away from the shutter button.
This results in a world of difference when focusing and ever since setting up my wee beauty that way I feel that the criticism towards the AF speed of the M is, well, kind of unjustified!
Anybody feels the same here?
Nice to have finally joined the CR forum...
