"If you know of any other extremely fast lenses, please share it with us.
Kind regards,

I also wrote an article about fast lenses about two weeks ago. Maybe I should update it with this Germanese lens?

+1 ... it is the cheapest full frame camera with a kit lens anywhere in the world.

As a bundle, yes.  But here in the USA at least, the 6D + 24-105/4L IS kit is only $84 more than the a7 + 28-70/3.5-5.6 OSS, and you're getting a more versatile body and a lens with a broader zoom range on both ends, constant aperture, and one stop faster at the long end. 
... snip ...


yes, 24-105 is a better lens.
but: http://camerasize.com/compact/#380.21,488.396,ha,t
oops! :-)


Yeah OK it does look a bit bigger but you are getting a longer zoom range. I wonder how it would compare to the 6D + 24-70 f/4L IS combo? Obviously it would cost more.

This link is for the 24-70 f/4 comparison.

This one is with both cameras with a 50 1.8

EOS-M / Re: Eos M vs Fujifilm X100
« on: December 14, 2013, 07:33:07 PM »

Eos M advantages -

1. No need to learn a new menu system.
2. Ability to use your existing Canon lenses via adapter.
3. A Canon hotshoe, no need for additional triggers for off camera flash.
4. Pocketable (with 22 f/2 lens and large jacket pockets!)
5. Magic Lantern
6. Higher resolution
7. Larger screen with anti smudge coating that actually works (and it's touchscreen but this could also be a disadvantage)
8. Works with Canon RC-1, 5 and 6.
9. Has Touch shutter feature that allows you to select a focus point, AF and take a picture by tapping the screen. (Still not found a good use for this though!)

#9 Have you used the touch shutter?  In candid situations I can be sitting around with a friend and point to the back of the camera - choose the subject and the camera will focus and take the pictures.  As long as you don't hold the camera up at eye level it appears that you are simply showing your friend some pictures you've taken and are pointing out something in some picture of the camera.  In a tight crowd or even when taking family pictures (works with kids really well), you can get some candid's that you simply could not get by holding your camera up to your eye.  Even with point and shoots without the touch shutter, people are aware whenever you have your finger on the shutter button and the camera is pointed toward them.  With touch shutter, you never touch the shutter button -- after all you are just showing a friend an already captured photo - right.....

By the way, #2 trumps All other EVF cameras currently if you are heavily invested in Canon glass.  Unless you are heavily invested in some other APS-C line of lenses, #2 is TRUMP over all other considerations although you forgot to mention the $300 price for body and a really decent lens.  What APS-C with 18 MP or more for $300 is there? (I know B&H is now $350).  I have a few of these for different purposes and many of my friends are buying them up when they can.

I have to give it a try again. Last time it kept taking pictures while it was hanging round my neck! I wonder if I was sat down like you said with the beep off, maybe it could work. I agree with finger on the trigger people take notice!

Of course some of these advantages are Canon user specific. If you already have Canon accessories. In a straight up head to head the Fuji wins. No contest.

10. $400 cheaper!

I thought price was an obvious one that OP and rest of the forum are aware of by now so I left it out!

Enjoy your purchase Surapon! I think you'll really like it! For the size and cost this thing is awesome. I'm starting to enjoy photography again thanks to this because I can take it just about anywhere and still have those DSLR functions that I'm used to.

Wow.  The concept is cool, but how many people in the world are going to buy a two thousand dollar lens to mount on >$300 camera?

You beat me to it I was gonna say the exact same thing!  ;)

So at this point, the X100 beats the EOS M in:
AF
Ergonomics
IQ
Overall Useability
Speed

Anything the M has an advantage in? Maybe size, but is it pocket-able?


I dunno, I was originally looking at the Olympus EPL5...

you performed a quadruple amputation on your unsuspecting Giottos. How cruel of you! LOL!
;D ;D ;D

Those 'legs/fins' are useless marketing ploys anyway, making it look like a rocket is not a plus in any way, IMHO. I've got two blowers that don't come with these silly fins, they're great. I've got a VisibleDust Hurricane Blower, but the Camgloss Tornado is something excellent.

Stops it from rolling off the table when cleaning lenses. Also for storage on a shelf it stands by itself, smaller footprint.
Good point ... I didn't think of that.
It's a small plus I agree, but not one I've run into a need of. The bellow is ribbed lengthwise by the way, that also stops it from rolling away. Anyway, thanks for clarifying.

Is it just me or does anyone else think it looks like sone kind of sex toy?? And the fact you said it's ribbed doesn't help it's case at all!!

I have a (probably dumb) question. If everytime a new camera comes out and we need a new version of LR to utilize the RAW files, can we convert those files to DNG first and run the DNG file in a previous version of LR?

Is that why the Adobe DNG converter is free?? So you can do that?
