Anyhow, good news is the competition is good for all of us and hopefully these companies wil continue building tools that we can enjoy. Here is a good article about the D750 written by Thom Hogan:
I though Hogan's article was good, and pointed out some of the flaws I see in Nikon's product naming and marketing strategy. It's schizophrenic, haphazard...sometimes just weird. But, I think Tom missed one thing: Many D750 buyers will simply be D700 owners looking for an upgrade. He couldn't seem to find a position for the D750...I think a key part of it's position is the logical upgrade for D700 owners.
FF, advanced auto focus, 6.5 FPS, and a class-leading sensor.
I recognize that we are a Canon community, but I am interested in your reaction to the seemingly continual updates to Nikon's camera bodies (D810, D800E, D800S, D610, potential D620, etc...)
Nowhere did the OP say he is considering buying a CN-E lens. It could have been simple curiosity.
You seems to have good lenses, so if you look at old film lenses should be something really unique.Thank you.
I have Canon 40 2.8 pancake and even with adapter is small enough for M.
You can also wait for native 50mm lens for M.
It depends on what you mean by "worth it". As you may have noticed, lots of vintage manual lenses are cheap, and lots of those can be very good to superb; it's an inexpensive way to play around with a variety of lenses. Given the tiny size of the M you'll likely want small lenses. If so, Pentax is perhaps the best place to start - a few weeks ago a bought a Pentax Super-Takumar 50mm 1.4 for c. $100 which makes excellent images, and an even smaller Pentax-M 50mm 1.7 for less than half that. Check out the pentax forum for vast numbers of user reviews. Your 100L is a marvelous lens, of course, but you might rather use something a lot smaller, such as the superb Nikon 55mm 2.8 macro (if you want to get close) or the Nikon E series 100mm 2.8, which looks tiny next to a 100L. I recently bought both those lenses in excellent shape for c. $120 each (and could have paid less if I had tried harder). With the right adapters, the range to choose from is vast. (I use them on my Olympus M43 and Sony a7r & a6000, but I don't see why they wouldn't work at least as well on an EOS-M.)
I recently installed Magic Lantern on my M and appreciated the improved ability of manual focussing, thanks to the focus peaking feature.
What is your impression on the Magic Lantern?? Did you see any problem?? Which built day did you used? I am thinking about installing magic Lantern on my EOS-M. But I have also read that there are problems with the shutter release. Thanks for the advice in advance.
