    I'm off to the Scottish Highlands next month, will be taking my kit as usual, but we are looking to walk up a Munro or three, so wanted a lightweight tele solution for hiking several miles gaining 900m+ in elevation... I'm not super fit, but do jog a bit, normally ok with 200-300m elevation...

    Fuji thoughts

    Having had a EOS-M for three years, I'm getting seriously disappointed with the lack of native glass for the mount. I've started thinking towards buying into the Fujifilm range. What do I miss in the EOS-M range, I want a few fast primes, I'm attracted to the 23mm f1.4 and 56mm f1.2 in the...

    11-22EF-M or 10-18EF-S on a EOS-M

    I've been pondering getting a 11-22EF-M, but then it struck me that the 10-18mm EF-S is about 20% cheaper in the UK, has anyone used the latter on an adapter ? What's the performance ? I've not got a crop body DSLR so the 10-18 wouldn't be much use other than on the EOS-M - I'm thinking a...

    What Lenses are missing from Canon's range

    Whilst we all have some idea in our heads about what might get replaced next, we all have some idea of 50/85mm IS lenses, a 35mm f1.4 II L or 100-400L - but what realistically is missing from Canon's EF range at the moment ? Here's my thoughts on omissions that could realistically be made - as...

    Next official EF-M Lens

    Following the release of the Canon EF-M 55-200 and the third party Tamron EF-M 18-200, what's next for the EF-M range from Canon, the four lens range is nice, but perhaps limited in appeal, what would you like to see and also, what patents are out there currently ? I've said a number of times...

    We often here that Canon had to ditch the FD mount in order to get AF working, what advantages did the EF mount bring and what exactly are the pros and cons of lens mounts by Nikon, Sony, Pentax and others ?

    UV Filter damage limitation on 16-35II

    400mm f5.6 - Why ?

    Been pondering my long tele options over the last few months... A 100-400mm is looking very likely, but I'm left pondering, why would anyone but the 400mm f5.6 prime ? Serious question, what does it offer other than being very slightly cheaper and lighter ?
