Canon EOS M & EF 800 f/5.6L IS
« on: July 25, 2012, 07:46:54 AM »
….. because you can
A friend of mine had a chance to play around with the new Canon EOS M. He did what I would have done the second I got my hands on the camera…. mount it to the lovely EF 800 f/5.6L IS.

Here’s what it looks like. I must say this looks like an extremely comfortable setup for general walk around birding.

Ha! An answer to a continuous prayer!
Anyone slapped this thing onto the rear of EF 1200/5.6L? Or at least EF 800/5.6L, if 1200 is too difficult.
Now to find anyone with THE 1200mm...  ::)
Trusty 20D, a lighter 200, a nifty fifty, and an old Sigma that won't work stopped down.

When begins an era of producing dedicated sensors with electronics for specific lenses? :)

Did he happen to mention how long the combination took to focus?

Was there a monopod Photoshopped out of the picture?

Haha, this looks almost as ridiculous as an iPhone with a Photojojo SLR mount attached.
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.

I think we have different definitions of "comfortable"...  Perhaps you're a bodybuilder?

But on a monopod this would rock.

Yes, Because of course the 800mm comes to mind when I think of a walk-around lens. We save so much weight when I use the M instead of an DSLR. ::)
