Third Party Manufacturers / Re: New 6D and M42 lenses capability.
« on: November 14, 2013, 08:50:03 AM »
Hey guys, I just got my 6D and I have a 85mm Jupiter 9 M42 lens. I was reading about the adapters with AF confirm, but also they said not all of them compatible with the 6D? Can you guys help me out and tell me where to buy, and which one?

I'm not aware of any adapters with focus confirm chip not working with the 6D so long as it is a Canon mount.  I've used multiple ones off Ebay (usually around $10) in both M42 and K-Mount and haven't had any issues.

Water fun ride!

Your beach and water pictures are very nice, Jason.  Bright, happy images with nice exposure.

For this shot I used an old Contax 50/1.9. It was quite hard to take because I had to focus before taking the shot and the camera was almost touching the water, so I couldn't see where I was focusing nor where was I framing. What do you guys think?

Nicely done.  I find some of the vintage glass (Helios and Takumars are mostly what I use) have really beautiful color rendering.  Less clinical than modern lenses.  Focus looks pretty good for the scenario that were describing (which is, by the way, why I wish that Canon had included the articulating screen with the 6D).

I'm happy to confirm that I will have my hands on a pre-production copy sometime over the next month or so.  I'll let you know everything that I'm allowed to share during my review process.

I am still consistently surprised by the great wide open sharpness from this little gem.

Taken with my 6D and EF 85 f1.8.

I am just an amateur...



Lovely atmosphere.  That is a pretty shot!

Great colors.  I'd love to give the Zeiss a test drive
Well, Dustin, anytime you're in the Brighton, Michigan, area, you're welcome to borrow it!

That's very kind :)

Here's a sunrise over Glen Lake, Glen Arbor, Michigan, shot with a 6D and a Zeiss Distagon 21mm lens.

Great colors.  I'd love to give the Zeiss a test drive :)

A wedding in France.  I don't own the 6D, I rented it for this wedding after reading Dustin's review of it.  I'm so glad I made this choice, it's such a wonderful camera.



That's a very elegant shot.  Very rich and warm.  Glad to hear that the 6D served you well for the wedding.

Here's another from the 18-55mm.  I'm actually surprised by how good the lens is - this is the type of lens that I have avoided like the plague since shooting DSLR's.  My original kit lens (on a Rebel) lasted for no more than a month before I sold it.

It is a surprisingly good lens - just like the little 22mm.

Bokehlicious summer flare... Just having fun with my 6D and 50mm F1.8 II.



Pretty color tones, Jason

EOS-M / Re: Mount EF, EF-S or L lens on EOS-M --- Your thought???
« on: November 11, 2013, 08:36:20 AM »
Here's one I took a day ago with the 85mm f/1.8 mounted on the M.  I've found that a fairly intriguing combination.  I had forgotten, however, how BAD the CA is on the 85, particularly in higher contrast scenes like what winter provides.  The sharpness and DOF of the combo is nice, and the balance is still manageable.

ISO 12,800:  this is one area of unquestioned strength on the 6D.  It's high ISO performance may be the best in Canon's lineup.
