EOS-M / The promised pics of the 18-200 Tammy
« on: July 14, 2014, 05:27:32 PM »
Do not complain about the Picture Quality...this was done in the halftime break of the soccer world Championship final so not to much love was invested...

I do not know how to make my uploaded pictures apear in the text so I sumply describe them inthe order I attach them:

1. Family Picture: Tammy, 18-55, 11-22, 22
2. Tammy EF-M versus Tammy EF-S
3. Same but looking from the fan service perspective
4. Tammy EF-M versus Tammy EF-S with Adapter
5. 200mm at 1:6.3 Lightroom raw to JPG convert

A word about 5. 
The model is a DeutschDrahthaar puppy about 3 month old.
A sitting puppy besides a sleeping puppy is the only thingthe AF of the M can handle (at least in my Hands)
The missaligned framing is because of the in my SOS mail mentioned way the zoom operates:
Smooth but Ultra tight glide. From 18 to 200 mm means left Hand graps lens, right Hand graps M  twisted by 180 degree and than pretend you want to squeeze water out of a wet Jeans. Oh and for good measure the lens has a zoom lock switch...

Touching the lens gives you the feel that you use the Sigma 1:1.8 Art zoom (also from relative weight)
STM kind of drive is nicely smooth and silent, VCD is silent and fast. But... mounting the lens or switching the M on generates a sound which reminds of the initialising Phase of a flatbed scanner.

You can see this on the Picture: The lens is fat, unlike the Canon EF-M design the Tammy has a much bigger Diameter than the bayonet.

Really funny lens... has zoom lock switch but while the zoom slides smooth you need a lot of force to use it. As the manual focus ring is in the way you have to handle the poor little m as if you want to wring water out of a wet jeans.

terrible sound when you turn on the camera but than almost silent vc and stm.

At 200 mm the 6.3 are awkward. In low light you see  focus hunting once fast than dead slow.

I will post some pictures on monday

Ok solved it: Af &Mf have to be activated

Now it works!

Nice lens... feels more heavy than the old 18 270 pcd vcd for efs and on the m it actualy feels like i mounted a 70 200 l but...

The M identifies the lens correct and states thatt lens correction values are available... how can this be?

Folks I need help

My tamron just arrived, it will focus it will use the vc function but the m will not take the picture. Using the buttpn will give the green frame but nothing happens. Using the touchscreen means the green frame will freeze and you have to take the battery out to clear the timeout.

Any ideas?

EOS 5D, 5DII or 5DIII but always with the 24-105 L and the Standard Canon Strap

The quality anchor for the APSC models was in my eyes always the 17-55 1:2.8.
With Canon being very carefull and Tamron having delivered their share maybe Sigma comes to the rescue?

The APS H sensor would not be dead if it would not be for the APS H mirror.
With 3 models (and none of them a real beginner camera) Canon cover full Frame from Amateur to Pro
On the APS C side they range from Generation IPhone to Pro but with an aging flagship. That is the ocean they have to put a fish in, not a niche for the pro. APS H was put forward to cover the high FPS niche where physical limitation of the time would have made FF akward (large mirror Swinging reducing potential max FPS). Why now in the age of mirrorless introduce again a compromise between sensor size and mirror movement? Especially if you have to explain to the upgrading APS C guys that they loose half of the APS C Advantage in reach for the Price of havingto use FF lenses in the future?

With EF, EFS and EFM it would take a lot of marketing to sell something which does not really fit the last two and is not really using the first one full.

Sometimes I believe Neuro is a collective of three People who read the Forum in shifts so that it Looks like he never sleeps....

by the way the next two pictures in this series are also interesting


I wonder if Neuro's collection of boxes cases and bags also includes something to take the safety equipment this German PRO carries around....

Price for the Canon nicer than I thought, the Tamron not so cheap...

Well 2.5K postings but manners like a sibling of Ankorwat.... had to refrain for some days to answer...

Yes gentlemen of course the restrictions for Field Hockey are not comparable to soccer.
The picture I enclose is from a game of the Chinese female team playing outside the Arena on an artificial green field and another one from the Dutch male Team playing inside the Kyrocera Arena on watered  artificial green field.  The Chinese team's Picture is nothing special just a Goal against another Team and shot from the wrong side but the guys arround the lonesome TV Camera in the corner gives you an idea how relaxed the Dutch are with sealing of the area.
