EOS Bodies / Re: MISSING Camera body feature
« on: Today at 09:11:54 AM »
So like many, I have de-coupled the half shutter press from AF, and instead use the AF-ON button to Auto Focus.

Boom - no more hesitation when the trigger is pulled waiting for the lens to re-focus.

What's missing though is a second AF-ON button / Dedicated SERVO mode.

How many of you toggle between "Single Shot" and "Servo" ?

Is it just me, or it would it be sooooooo nice to have them both at your fingertip?

Switching between C1/2/3 isn't a good alternative, esp with a locked dial.
5d3 and 1 DX can program the dof button to do this

I guess I'm the only one hoping for an EF-M pancake. I certainly don't expect it, I just like the idea of having another pocketable lens for my little friend.

id be super keen for a EF-M 35 f2 pancake

Well...to each is own, I guess. Me, I'm going to get vocal about Canon's crappy low ISO noise, and do everything I can to back up my claims with concrete, visual evidence...because, it's really freakin NASTY noise. STILL nasty...after all these years. And I think that needs to change (especially because Canon is still my preferred brand...I'd rather have a 5D IV with 50mp and 14 stops of DR than a D800.)

I see nothing wrong with jrista complaining about "Canon's crappy low ISO noise."

Anyone is welcome to complain about anything they want. But...

...doing it over and over and over and over again to the same audience becomes tedious.

...attempting to "prove" your point again and again to those who happen to disagree with your opinion becomes annoying.

...insisting that you are right and then attacking anyone who doesn't share your viewpoint is obnoxious.

...failing to recognize that what you perceive to be a major concern isn't necessarily even a minor concern of others is rude.

...hijacking every discussion to push your agenda with long diatribes that repeat the same basic points time after time is obsessive.

...demeaning others when they raise concerns about features that you don't happen to care about (as in touch screens) is narrow minded.

...making wild claims that unless your particular obsession is addressed by a major multi-national corporation they will be doomed is delusional.

And, most important of all...thinking that these discussions on an internet forum are anything more than trivial ineffective entertainment is just silliness.
well said mr unfocused

this is the EF-S and EF-M samyang / rokinon 8mm comparison
without even adding in the adapter there is a massive size difference already

Would you be so kind as to upload a wee pic of the EOS M with the EF-M version of the 8mm fisheye attached to it please?

Just want to see it for reference.

sure i'll do it now
here it is with the 18-55 for comparison

Canon General / Re: Carry on restrictions on South African Airways

You might want to do that anyway even if baggage is not a problem, since SAA cabin crew have got to be among the worst out there. They are among the most unfriendly, sour and unhelpful flight attendants I have ever encountered. They all seem to hate their jobs, or more precisely, they like having the job and the travel it brings, but hate the actual doing it part. It could be that most of them are black, whereas most travelers on SAA flights are white, and there is some carry over resentment from the apartheid era where they see catering to the needs of a bunch of white folk as demeaning. In any event the general attitude of their flight attendants is very sullen.

Pretty well my own experience, it's sad, but I agree 100% with both the comment & sentiments expressed.

its a tough call which is worse SAA or British Airways both airlines i would quite happily never ever have to fly with again
unfortunately going to africa you have limited options
consider singapore air as a better option they are an awesome airline i'd give them the #1 slot any day and I fly ALOT

its a shame its 24mm a 20mm or 21mm would have been better... and partnered the 40mm better

but that said 24mm will give 38mm on apsc so its kind of like a aps-c version of the 40 on full frame
