EOS M for travel
« on: August 30, 2013, 12:23:25 PM »
I guess many may consider a EOS M for travel usage. It's so much lighter, especially when you start to bring more lenses. I visited Perth west australia with EOS M while leaving my DSLR at home.

Here is my 2cents report

Nice review!  Your 3 battery suggestion is a good one.  I have 2 batteries for mine and am nervous at times that my 2nd one will last all day.

Have you used your 11-22 lens much yet?  If so, what are you impressions?  I just have the 22/2 currently, but am looking at adding the other two lenses soon.
Bodies:  6D, EOS-M (22/2 and 18-55)
Lenses: Rokinon 14mm 2.8, 35mm 2.0 IS, 85mm 1.8, 100mm 2.8L IS Macro, 135mm 2.0L, 24-70mm 2.8L II, 70-200mm 2.8L IS II, Extenders: EF 1.4xIII, EF 2xIII ; Flash: ST-E3-RT, 600EX-RT (x3)

I love the 11-22! It is clued to the m now especially since I use the m frequently as second (wide) body for my wildlife excursions with the 5DIII+500mm...

There are a number of reviews around the web.
From DPR

"Canon is making grand claims for the 11-22mm's optical quality, and saying that its 12 element / 9 group design will offer significantly better image quality than the (already well-regarded) EF-S 10-22mm"

I think it's true, probably the best if you're happy with the F number.
What wasn't mentioned in many reviews was that the distortion control is also excellent.
