Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Why the delay for the Tamron 150-600?

maybe they are adding panning mode IS...

I'd happily pay another $1000 to be able to send mine in and have panning mode added...

biggest negative on this lens for sure

D800 -> D810

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
