EOS-M WITH EF 85 MM F/ 1.2 L MK II
« on: January 21, 2014, 12:18:20 PM »
Dear Friends.
Yes, When we use This Tiny / Awesome  EOS-M with Canon Big Lens, It is very difficult to handle the Tiny Camera in our hand.
Yes, For me, I buy Fotodiox Pro($ 50 US Dollars) All metal Black Camera Hand grip special for EOS-M, Plus I have 25 years old Canon Grip GR-100TP ( for my Old Film Canon T50, T70 and T90) = Perfected for Handle big Canon Lenses.
Here are the Photos of my Equipments.
Enjoy

With that heavy lens, wouldn't you want to mount the tripod grip the adapter instead of the camera body?

That's what I did.

Thanks for your comment, Dear Friend fsgray.
Because If I use that Canon Grip, I must remove the  Lens adaptor Tripods Hole out.
But you are right, If I use the Big Canon Lens with out Canon Hand grip, I use Tripods at the Lens adaptor Mount.
Have a great Friday.

I've tried this lens/body combination. It's definitely unbalanced and awkward, but still cool. However, it's not the killer 'night out candid shots' option I dreamed of before I got the EOS-M. For controlled environments only, I'd say; it does make me want either the EF-M 22mm f/2 or the EF 35mm f/2 IS though. PS I agree with mounting the tripod on the adaptor, not the body.
Current equipment: 5Ds, 5D mark III, 50D, 24-105L, MP-E, 100L macro, 500L IS II; 1.4xIII + 2x III extenders; 600EX-RT.
Former equipment includes: 300D; EOS-M, EF-M 18-55, Samyang 14mm f/2.8, EF 35 f/2 IS, 70-200L f/4 non-IS and f/2.8L IS II, 85L II, Sigma 180 macro, 200L 2.8, 400L 5.6

Dear Friend scyrene.
Yes, This Monster 85 mm L Lens is for the Full Size DSLR, Special  1DS, to get the Best Balance in Handle by big hands like us, you and me.
But, Some times, EOS-M is very helpful when we need this Tiny awesome Babe.
Have a great Weekend.
