Would you mind a few details of settings, etc.? 
NICE one.

EOS-M / Re: Next official EF-M Lens

What I want, would be a compact 55mm f/2. IS would seal the deal.

Between that and the 22mm f/2 you basically have the EOS M equivalent of 35/85 which is a small light versatile kit with fast glass. And still pocketable!

Anything wider, or more tele, and the length of the lens has to increase significantly, which makes it much less pocketable.

+1 for a small 55 f/2 with or without IS. I find the M great at the wide end but for real telephoto work I much prefer the OVF of a proper DSLR. 55mm on M is about as long as I would like to go.

Photography Technique / Sunset/Ocean Techniques?
« on: July 11, 2014, 06:01:00 PM »
     Any words-of-wisdom for sunset/sunrise shots over an ocean?  I've got the usual stuff down, but would a graduated ND filter be something to consider?  Any other thoughts are very welcome.
     The gear will likely be a 70D/35 2.0 IS and then maybe a 10-18 for sunrises.  In this case the sunsets will be at the beach and the sunrises over rocks with water breaking all around.
     Thanks for any and all responses.

Have some found an EOS M/22mm lens a good solution for a big trip (one not including wildlife)?  Just got my M/22 and Aruba is just a few weeks away.

Software & Accessories / Small Bag Recommendation?
« on: July 02, 2014, 02:24:11 PM »
Is there a favorite small bag for one DSLR w/small lens + an additional small lens?  In this case it's the 70D, 35 2.0 IS and 10-18.  Looking for something as concise as possible, but still a bit snazzy.  Nothing over-the-top, but with at least a little bit of style.

Thanks and would my 70D software work for importing pictures onto my computer from the M (will my current EOS Utility recognize the M) without downloading the software that comes with it?

Thanks.  Ordered it today with the least expensive B+W CPL and a Lowepro Dashpoint 20.  After the most research in the history of compulsive purchases I think I did the right thing.

EOS-M / M+22mm for Travel/Street?
« on: June 27, 2014, 10:24:56 AM »
Could the EOS M with 22mm lens be "it" for a do-it-most travel/street solution when wishing to travel light?  Just back in stock at my friendly retailer.
I like prime lens, by the way, the EOS software already on my computer and ability to use my Canon flash if necessary.  Not sure how I feel about no viewfinder, but probably can't have it all.

What I did isn't tiny, but works most of the time:

Canon crop (70D), 10-18 and 35 2.0 IS.

While we're at it what do you think of the X100S?

Did someone say 200 2.8?

Just got the 10-18 to match my 35 2.0 IS.  Adding a 70-300L one day will leave me with 3 lenses that all take a 67mm filter. 
Haven't put it through it's paces much yet, but here's one purposely shot for distortion:

Lenses / Re: Canon 10-22 vs 10-18

I've just been enlisted to chronicle (daily) the construction of a large Veterans' Monument who's construction begins on Monday.  I've also been approached just today by a realtor for some of that.
For the life of me I can't decide between the 10-18, either of the two Sigma 10-20's or the Tokina 11-16 II (although possibly slightly leaning towards the Tokina).  There's also the Sigma 8-16, of course.
Can anyone tell me which one to get?  I have a 70D and will more than likely stick with that for awhile and crop sensors for even longer; probably.
