Lenses / Re: EF-M 11-22 f/4-5.6 IS STM Not Coming to the USA

At $600 for the ef-m UWA, one might as well use the ef-s 10-22 with the adapter.

+1  I shouldn't have sold mine. 

AND you get the extra 1mm

Lenses / Re: Question on new 16-35
« on: July 12, 2013, 05:25:19 PM »
I have found comparing these two lenses that the 16-35 overexposes by approx. 1/3-1/2 stop compared to the 10-22 which I don't mind.

That difference in brightness is significant, IMO.  I suspect one of the lenses is outright lying about the aperture that it is giving you, which means your DOF is different because the aperture isn't really the same.  The 10-22 is much darker, which, assuming approximately the same field of view (there's a small difference, but not enough to make that much difference in brightness, I don't think) means that the 10-22 is using a smaller aperture, which would result in a sharper picture.

Try taking photos in the same location with approximately the same field of view, but adjusting the 16-35's F-stop number higher until you get the same brightness.  I suspect you'll find the DOF to be similar in both lenses.  Only then can you fairly compare the two lenses.

Incidentally, this test is high on my to-do list when I get home, as I just bought a 6D and a 16-35 to match the shot angle that I used my 10-22 to achieve on my XTi.  I'll see if I can put together some good test shots on the XTi for comparison purposes.

The fact that you're not seeing the DOF problems on a different body further supports that theory; there's probably a camera-specific firmware bug involved in aperture reporting.  :)

My bad, this was first comparison shot I took and I am mistaken after looking at the exif, the camera metered the shot different with respect to shutter speed. The camera chose 1/40 shutter and 1/25 between the two shots.  I made sure other shots were the same settings.  The 10-22 vignettes quite a bit vs. hardly any vignetting on the 16-35.

If some of you guys have the same combo I do I would be very interested to see how your 16-35's are holding up against the 10-22 on a cropped body.  It seems the right side of my 16-35 is much worse than the 10-22 with the 16-35 looking a tad better in resolving detail in center

1st off, you need to redo your test in MANUAL mode.  Then you can start comparing apples to apples.  The camera shouldn't be choosing your shutter speed.  Set the same exposure with ALL the same setting in M.

hmmm... My M fires the AF assist beam with my 430 ex II attached.  I had no idea my 600 ex-rt wouldn't work

EOS-M / Re: How do you carry your EOS-M?

Mine came today.  I think I'll be carrying this one around my neck.  It's so tiny compared to my mk3!

EOS Bodies / Re: 70D or 6D
« on: July 07, 2013, 01:20:54 AM »
Just a thought on pop up flashes, nice for snapshots in low light, but not so effective for fill light.   

?  what do you mean?  a pop up flash is fine for filling in some shadows. It doesn't need to be nearly as powerful if used as just a fill...

I bought one just for the price.  I passed up the $399 deal last month (on eBay).  Even if I absolutely hate the camera, I could probably sell it on CL for a small profit!

whoa!  what happened here?  wtf did I miss?  are you guys arguing about if a camera's AF is good or not? really? 

the 6D is great for what it is at the price point it's at.  If the 6D's features don't fit your needs, get the mk3 or 1DX.  it's not that complicated.  It didn't happen to meet my needs for what I wanted from a backup camera but that doesn't mean it isn't right for someone else.  Heck, for me, I just didn't like it not matching the feel/button layout of my 5D mk3... again, first world problems.....sheesh,  I'll live. 

as far as who's lying and who's had real world experience with the camera, go try it out for yourself.  a consumer's own personal experience/opinion with the body is what matters the most anyway.  They're the ones shelling out the cash to purchase the product.  share your thoughts on it if you care to share but my goodness, let's keep it civil.  name calling and insulting each other is just useless and to be honest, I'm surprised a moderator hasn't put a stop to this discussion already. 

go shoot some pictures guys/gals.  I still think that's more entertaining than writing essays on CR about

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon wants to make everyone a filmmaker
« on: July 02, 2013, 11:56:14 AM »
Well, I have a pretty nice dSLR.   ::)  But I don't use it for handheld video and instead, I have a Canon Vixia HF M41 camcorder for that.  I frequently bring both with me.  Obviously, the main reason is the lack of a usable 'camcorder-like' AF in the dSLR. 

Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF appears to change that.  I'm not sure if it will get incorporated into the high end dSLRs at some point (it might not - the Hybrid CMOS AF hasn't), but if it does, and the AF performance is as-billed, I'd consider ditching the camcorder and just using the dSLR for video.

Had an M41 but sold it.  I do miss the AF though and I have been waiting for a non-rebel with the ability to focus automatically during video.

In response to the op, I think it's a great thing that we have the ability to do video with our DSLRs.  That's what convinced me to get into the DSLR world in the first place.  I didn't realize I'd love the photog stuff just as much!  =o

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 70D Reaction
« on: June 30, 2013, 02:09:15 PM »
maybe I'm just numb to it but it's kind of funny to see him get all worked up about's obviously an act to get more hits on youtube.  for those of you who are offended by him, I urge you to not take anything personally.  don't let some clown on you tube get your blood pumping.  I'm not advocating for him.  I just wouldn't take him that seriously.

on another note, I'm actually interested to see how the 70d performs.  I thought I'd never go back to APS-C but if it has AF during video AND it has kelvin temp white balance, AND decent high ISO performance, I might have a reason to get one for a 2nd angle for videos.  I really don't want a T4i/T5i.  I'd like to have the same LP-E6 battery in all my cameras, and a swivel screen is very convenient.

I owned it for 4 days and returned it.  This might be an unfair comparison because I already own a 5d mk3.  The worst thing for me was that it felt a little slower to focus (with the same lenses in daylight) compared to my mk3.

the other gripes I had were MINOR. I could have lived with these issues, especially if it was my only body or if I had two 6Ds.  :

1) a bit more plastic feeling
2) button layout was different compared to mk3
3) SD cards are a tad bit slower than CF, also no dual card slot

Honestly, I don't think I would've felt the difference in AF speed if I wasn't a mk3 user.  I hear there is a little bit of a problem with moire when doing video butI didn't bother testing it. 

I'm actually considering a T4i/T5i as a 2nd camera angle for the Auto AF during video but I'm torn because I want that feature in a FF body with a vari-angle LCD, same LP-E6 battery, and Kelvin temp WB.  maybe the 70D, 7d mk2, or 6d mk2 will bring me some/all of these features!

I might need to upgrade my tripod for that one!  =P

I think they use 1TB drives for storage when taking pictures with it!!!!

(sigh)  I'm returning the 6D today (purchased on Thursday).  Decent camera but a little slower and a bit "plastic-y" (minor gripe).  You guys were right.  I've got to get an identical body.  damn... time to save!!!

This is great news.  I've been patiently waiting to add an ultra wide angle to my FF lens collection!
