Happens with my 5D III too. I tend to remove the card to transfer files rather than using the camera/usb cable connection, so it happens a lot. So much so, that I've added that menu to my favorites to quickly change it back.

I didn't want to bring the 24-105L as it's redundant but I'll squeeze it into my carry-on. I might use it, I might not but everyone agree's I should take it.
Most everyone here agrees that 300mm is seldom used in these citys. So the 70-200 f/4L IS is the choice for me.
That makes this
-70-200L F/4 IS
Should I take one of my additional fast primes like the 24L II or the 135L? I could fit one more in my carry-on.
If they wanted, Canon could sell M-pancakes at prices very similar to the ultra-compact FF-capable EF 40/2.8 pancake - with excellent IQ and "good enough for me" build quality - and still make tons of money.
And for € 399 they could just as well have built an EF-M 11-22 IS with a constant f/4 aperture. All the difference would have been a slightly larger front element and a 62 filter thread instead of 55.
But lets wait what image quality the 11-22 will really deliver. And as long as there is no adequately performing EOS-M body, I am not interested anyways.
Let me get this right.
A $1k lens is not as sharp as a $2k lens... and you're spitting mad? Have you never thought that (usually) you pay for what you get? Quite often, you pay a lot more.
I think people are always upset when their expectations aren't met. Samyang has released several lenses that are optically very good, and at a bargain price. This lens appears to be neither.
Before we go all crazy on hating the lens, lets all remember that that was one lens tested. Rokinon is known for not always having the most constant quality of product. This lens might have just been a bad copy, when they start trying out more of them and find the same thing, then we can get a little upset but before then, we should just wait and see.
How many people have an 'M'? I mean there isn't even a section in the gallery for it.
Just seems like they are making a new lens for a camera that has flopped hard.
Did anyone else raise an eyebrow at the "IS" in that lens name?Imagine being able to drag shutter for water shots (maybe 1/5 to 1/2s) without a tripod...for someone already considering the EOS-M line, that's another few pounds saved.
I didn't think people really needed to handhold 1-second exposures at 11mm, but I suppose the technology does help sell lenses to novices.
" MTFs curves also tend to get higher for longer focal lengths as well."
no they don't, longer focal lengths are measured around 10lp/mm which gives higher higher curves, for example Canons 300mm has higher resolution than 500 or 600 who are optimized for high contrast and do well at lower Lp/mm
300/2,8 and shorter lenses has higher resolution and are often measured around 30-50Lp/mm when they are compared to each other
So, there are nothing strange about that 300/2,8 are a sharper lens regarding resolution and contrast
