10mm 2.8 on EFS is not needed with the Tokina 11-16 in place ... But this one is interesting:

Samyang 12 f/2.0 (yes ...  2.0) for EOS-M 


And it's only 260g !  This would revive my interest in my EOS-M.

That's right - this 12mm is the WA to get for my NEX system too!  8)

A tilting screen with a mirrorless camera can come in handy for macro use as Surapon has shown. I took this with my NEX and vintage Canon FL 50mm f/3.5 Macro. Fortunately I don't need a mirror ;) 

I might add the butterfly was facing the sky, and my camera was facing down, with the tilted screen enabling me to see what's going on. Sony's focus peaking is another asset in this case, showing in a color of choice (yellow/white/red) the outline of the part of the subject that is in sharp focus.

The best friend I ever had: Lodewijk. In the first picture he's enjoying the sunshine at old age in may 2012. Unfortunately he passed on half a year ago at age 17. He had diabetes from age 15 and we gave him a shot of insulin twice every day.

The second shot is made on the last day he was with us - heart disease and diabetes was the end of him  :( :'(

I recently got a Wacom Intuos Pro Small with my 5D MkIII as part of a Canon promotion. It's got nice touch and swipe features but I went back to my trusty Wacom Bamboo tablet because it has a smaller footprint (and the same sensitive area). I use my tablet as a mouse too and the Intuos Pro just takes up too much desktop space and won't comfortably sit next to my keyboard. Bummer :(

Samyang has announced a bunch of mirrorless lenses, as well as a 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS Lens for Canon.

I would be interested to know which mirrorless lenses they have announced? Well here's more info:


The 12 mm looks tasty for the NEX...  8)

'Willem', almost 1 yr old. This shot was made using a NEX-6 and an adapted vintage Canon FL 50mm f3.5 Macro (lens released in 1965). The lens has 6 aperture blades, 4 elements in 3 groups and is a 'Tessar' optical design that delivers fabulous bokeh.

Maybe I'll take the 80's approach and stick 'turbo' logo's onto everything. Say what do you think of my 5D Mk II 'Turbo'?  ;D

I need both!!!!

The worst case of 'gas' is when you can convince yourself that you really 'need' everything :)

Shot the skyline of downtown Houston yesterday after sunset. Both pictures were shot from the same spot. The time difference was about 20 mins.

With Rokinon 14mm 2.8 and the lens correction profile posted by mrsfotografie

Cool shot!

Interested in getting this lens. Which is better, get a Canon mount lens + EMF chip for AF confirmation & correct EXIF data or Nikon Mount lens with Nikon to Canon EF adapter (Nikon mount lens has AE support and focus confirmation) ? In short, which is the more reliable way to get the AF confirmation light & correct EXIF data? TIA

I would add the EMF chip.  Going with the adapter means that you introduce the possibility of some image quality less through an adapter that is less than perfect.

I agree, and if you get a programmable chip you can do your own calibration.

I need help! Spring is in the air and I am coming down with GAS, I am spending to much time looking at lens reviews....how can I rid myself of this affliction?..? ;) ;)
Fortunately I seem to have some sort of immunity against GAS... ;)
Looking at the gear in your signature, is there anything left to buy?  :-P

I see only one camera body. That's impossible!
