I'm not a big fan of eos-m, but it's the best value for crop mirrorless body. I mainly use this camera at work. Photograph electronic components etc...

Shouldn't be more than $899. In fact, I'd probably still buy the Tamron for $1,299 even if the Canon were $899.
It needs IS and thus this one needs to be discontinued.
Not sure what there's left to improve besides weight to be honest.
The biggest improvement over the MKI was the much improved MFD and updated IS imo, but either version shoots wide open all day long leaving folks more than happy with the results.
By coincidence I'll be there the following week on vacation, organised as a mystery tour by Chinese friends after official visits to Hong Kong and Shanghai. I had intended to take the 5DIII plus Tamron 150-600 for nature and 24-105 for general.
I have been trying to persuade my wife to take the 70D with the 15-85 as it could provide a back-up body and I could omit the 24-105 and we would have two cameras ready all the time. However, she wants something small for her handbag. She needs something without any buttons, mode dials etc that can be pressed by mistake and set off the self- timer etc. Anything foolproof to recommend (apart from iPhones etc)?
having sold my 5D2 I bought a 5D3. I made some tests to check it but due to bad weather and work I did not have the chance to use it. So now I tried to test it again.
It works fine but I noticed 2 things:
1. There is a infinitessimally small dot on the glass of the back LCD. It is just a dot
and can be seen only when the LCD is off.
I mentioned it and I was offered an exchange.
However, since I will have to pay the courier I guess it will cost (with insurance) more than 50 euros.
Any suggestions? (since it is very very small and can be seen only when LCD is off)
2. The image counter seemed a little over 500 while I had shot less than 10. But I do not
remember whether I had formated the CF I put in the camera before using it.
Could this be the cause?
They claimed that this is the cause.
Sonalpharumors reports the following rumor with a SR5 rating (i.e. "almost certainly correct!")
(SR5) New Full Frame E-mount cameras to be launched within the next 5-6 months (likely at Photokina).
I can confirm via multiple trusted sources that Sony will launch new Full Frame E-mount cameras within the next 5-6 months. I guess it means they will be launched right before the Photokina September show. NONE(!) of them will be a replacement of the current A7 and A7r models. All we know for sure about these new models is that they will have an advanced hybrid AF system similar to what we got inside the newly announced Sony A6000.
The surprises: I can already tell you that there will be many more cameras in the months to come (RX and Alpha and E-mount). I am working on those rumors right now….be patient
That is a very interesting development, coz the a6000 auto focus system has received a lot of praise from pretty much every photographer who got their hands on it ... and from what I've seen on youtube videos, it does seem to be awesome ... and to have it on a full frame camera (which might be priced modestly) is even more awesome ... exciting times.
Was wondering how often fellow CR members visit this forum.
Unfortunately, I'm 'Option 5' - It could be from my smart phone, tablet, laptop or the pc! I suppose I just want to stay up to date with all things Canon.
Are you having fun with 70d + 100-400? Any photos want to share?Yes very much ... its a nice combo and when I receive the white lens hood, I'll pretend its a 200-400 L IS lens ... here are a few pics from last Thursday (all the images are cropped to death)
1st photo - my 3yrs at school, book fair. jpeg straight out from camera.
What does this issue mean for the camera's weather sealing?
By the way, I was seriously considering blackmail for 10% commission, but since you have not removed me from your buddy list, I think I should also be nice and reduce my commission to only 7% of the lens priceNice opportunity to blackmail him for a 10% commission or we rat on him to his wife.And now Dylan a tough question. Actually a very tough one: Does your wife know? Does she even know about this poll?
If the size and color is same as my 400mm f2.8 IS II, she couldn't tell the diff. That why I ruled out Tamron
That is truly very Funny, deceitfully crafty, and smart.
Rienz, I just removed you from my "buddy list" .........Just kidding
Your G.A.S is not any better than mine. Are you sure you want to do that?
I'm heading to China this weekend. My co-workers and I will visit Guilin, the mountain range in the weekend there. I'll pack 5D III(x2) and 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II with 1.4x TC III.
Can't even take my A7r with me, since I have no decent UWA for this system
I thought you bought the Sony 10-18mm UWA lens, I know it had some funky color issues to the left edges of the frame, but I thought the image itself quite decent, wouldn't that lens do the job for your trip?
By the way, speaking of GAS, I ordered two white lens hoods (for my 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II & 100-400 f/4-5.6 L IS lenses), they should be arriving before next Monday ... so I can pretend that my 100-400 L IS is a 200-400 L lens ... and here is the screen shot of the order
