PowerShot / Re: New PowerShot G17 Coming in Spring [CR2]
« on: February 28, 2015, 04:46:11 PM »
I guess that if other specs are true it won't be 1" sensor. I don't believe they will made G17 bigger than Sony RX10 (1"sensor and f/1.2-2.0 24–168mm will be bigger).

In the old towns you don't need so long lenses, but sometimes there are beautiful views for telephoto lenses outside.

Last few times when I was in Greece, I was using mostly wide angle lens (EOS-M 11-22) and telephoto lens(Sigma 100-300 F4)
Here is an example -

Am I the only one who hate that purple fringing on 85 1.8 and 100 2.0?:

I know I can easily remove it during post-processing, but I don't wanna see it on the camera screen. 

EOS-M / Re: Would you sacrifice smaller LCD screen for built in viewfinder?

No. I have no need for a built-in viewfinder on a compact camera and am glad Canon agrees for the M. I do not understand why people want these little peep-holes on such cameras. Complete waste of space for me -- on compacts. Add-on solution for those that want them suits me just fine.

Totally agree!

I'm shooting RAW+JPEG and that's probably 3 files buffer... Call me again when it's 300 Euro.

I think the M3 is a step in the right direction but I will need to think long and hard as to whether to continue to invest in this system (currently I have M, 22, 18-55, 11-22 and EF/EF-M adapter) or cut my losses and look elsewhere for a performer.

I have the same equipment and I'm in the same situation - again pricey body and no signs of incoming good lenses needed for the system...

I like the size and I'm fine with the lack of EVF.
BUT the price is not for that class camera.

EOS-M / Re: What's the next EF-M lens you'd like to see?

44 2.0 Pancake
88 2.0 or 70 macro 2.0
135 2.8
15-75 F4 IS
40-120 2.8 IS

I have 3 batteries for M now, but if it's at least 1100Mah (~25% more than now) I'll be OK with the change (+2 third party like now) :)

I don't care about DPAF as far as the AF capabilities are improved.

4.2 FPS is not much, but what I need to know is the buffer size, old M with RAW+JPEG is just unusable for continuous shooting.

Thanks, it was a great weekend walking trip and mirrorless system is very nice for such places. I still need something like 135 2.8 :)

I never thought I would be considering a Samsung camera, but this little fireball has winner written all over it. Might be a worthy alternative for possible M3 buyers. :)

28MP BSI Sensor
4K internal recording
Flippy screen
Killer lenses

I thought I'm the only one looking at NX500 and the good primes of NX system. Let's see the M3 price...

Night sky with M, why not :)

It's taken with 11-22@11, F4, 30sec, 3200 ISO

And the next morning before sunrise(HDR, because the foreground was too dark):

The blog with more pictures from that trip in the mountain -

P.S. Just pointed to the exact link, translate sometimes don't get it :)

That body looks more serious and capable. I'm fine with the lack of viewfinger, articulating screen is fine. I have tried Oly E-M10 and didn't used the VF most of the time, it makes such small camera to look and feel bulky.

I'm interested in new native lenses and AF improvements. Nice and small primes, please!

Here are my tries with Lovejoy:

70D, Sigma 105 2.8 macro OS, 5 sec, 6400 ISO, freezing cold in the mountain

3.2 sec, 3200 ISO

Lenses / Re: Anyone own the Canon EF 200mm f/2.8 L II?
« on: January 09, 2015, 07:59:14 AM »
I had one and I liked it, but on APS-C is too long for portraits and too short for birds. I liked it for street and sports, on FF is great for portraits.
