EOS-M / Re: EOS M Autofocus Performance Won't Improve via Firmware [CR2]

It a un-wise move to adopt a First gen product when its the only option available.

...unless you need the feature(s) that are only available in that first gen product.  Granted, I haven't run across that scenario for photography...but it happens often in my day job.

So, EOS-M Gen2 won't be better and make the Gen1 cheaper? And avoiding problems by not adopting a gen1 system until gen2 is released?

Sure, a second generation version will improve upon the original, and make the original cheaper.  But if you require a feature or features of the first version, you put up with the problems (not like the 2nd gen won't have it's own set of them) and you pay the premium.

Exactly, my original post.

"No surprise here. 1st Gen product."

A Metabones Like tele-compressor from canon would even out the playing field on APS vs FF EVILS. Lets just see If they're smart enough to do so.

Then you are not working with a true optical image

So, where's the issue?

How many times have I typed that yes, the 5Dc is a first gen camera and has many many flaws but I never bought it at release for the full asked price when it was the only option.

The thread states that the EOS M AF cannot be fixed with firmware. No surprise, because its a first gen product it will have all these flaws that cannot be fixed by firmware. Just like said 5Dc. But I never adopted products until Gen 2 was released. Simpy because gen2 will be better and gen1 will be a lot cheaper. Like iPhone 1 and iPhone 3G.

I can guarantee when RX-2 is released, I'll be able to buy a used RX-1 for half of what you paid or just get the fixed RX-2.

So your complain is the PRICE of the first generations, not the PERFORMANCE. If it is the performance, you will never buy the first generation regardless of the price.

Lets put it this way, I didn't adopt the 5D2 either. It still wasn't the camera I needed, the MK3 was the camera where I adopted it ASAP to replace my temp 5Dc system.

It's a price/performance ratio that matters and that ratio is always higher with a gen2 system. Thus I never adopt first gen systems but wait for Gen2's release.
You have just contradict yourself BIG TIME.   You adopted the 5D C (first generation), but not the 5D 2 (second generation).


5Dc Released - Didn't adopt at release, Too expensive. ONLY OPTION AT THE TIME. For example, EOS-M is the ONLY Option at the moment for Canon mirrorless, just as the 5Dc was for affordable FF.

5D2 Released - Didn't adopt at release, Too expensive, AF disappointed. Other option avaliable, a Used 5Dc for cheap.

Purchased used 5Dc until Mk3 Release.

5D3 - Released, Had all the features I needed. Adopted ASAP and replaced my temp 5Dc.

It a un-wise move to adopt a First gen product when its the only option available. I never adopt first gen products until the next gen is released, If its better, I buy Gen2. If its not better, Gen1 will always be cheaper.

Perhaps you need to re-read my previous posts.

600 ex RT vs PCB einstein 

That is the question in my upgrade situation.

Apples and Oranges no? I didn't sell my Elinchrom lights to get the speedlight. I sold my old speedlights to get new speedlights.

Personally, I love the look my bigger lights can produce, their versatility in power output (the Einsteins are very impressive in this regard), but they're not entirely portable.  So do you shoot at home, or in controlled environments where you don't have to lug heavy equipment around all the time, looking for power? Or are you working on your feet in tight situations often with incredibly limited amounts of time?

I use both types of light for different situations, though that doesn't prohibit me from combining them if necessary.

Well, I'd use both equally as much. Before reading the review, I was 100% sure of my upgrade path to ditch my older strobes for PCB. Now, I'm not so sure if I should ditch my old 580's for 600 RT's until my Novatrons die then get new Einsteins.

I've noticed after using the 50L for awhile now that it has a field curvature outside the center point. My solution is multiple shots while slightly moving forward or if you focus and recompose it seems that it lands pretty close as well.

Then sometimes, the AF just nails it. The 50L is a fickle and unique beast, it just takes practice to learn it quirks.

I have to say that after using the A77's EVF, I was very impressed. It would be a good substitute for OVF in a small bodied camera like the EOS-M.

Canon tele-compressor for extra speed and to widen out my EF lenses. Like meta bones.

Once you start pushing a 6x4 foot softbox at f/8 and smaller in a studio, a speedlite becomes an issue.

If your going to take photography more seriously, I'd skip the rebel and buy a 5Dc.
