Thom Hogan basically ditched his DX kit for an OMD kit... If Canon doesn't get the M up to speed soon, they will have very serious issues in the near future...Hobby Shooter said:Hi, thanks for the links, checked out Posner and McGillicuddy. It probably makes sense to some people shooting in certain situations. I guess where resolution, AF and probably other areas I can't think of now matters, people will need DSLRs even in the future. This Posner guy doesn't really come out as very confident explaining his choice. It seems to me he has to justify it to the reader. Does he believe in himself or is it a way of creating buzz around him?c.d.embrey said:I don't know about Very Serious Photo Enthusiasts, but some Pro shooters are switching to mirrorless.Hobby Shooter said:So could you please elaborate on this subject instead of coming up with these blanket statements?andyjaggy said:Yeah same here. More and more I see really good photographers drawn towards smaller powerful bodies. This confirms that Canon is completely lost. Maybe they see is as entry level because their current offering is half baked and not selling well.dilbert said:Nor I and if Canon have said that then it shows a rather remarkable disconnect with where digital photography is going.It was mentioned that Canon doesn’t have plans currently to launch more EOS M prime lenses, as they see the segment as “entry level”. I’m not sure I agree with that if true.

Anyway, as said by me and many, competition is good. It'll be interesting to see where we are in five years.
You're making me feel dumb. My camera is set to "M" most of the time...paul13walnut5 said:Just can figure these AF comments out at all.
Folk making them either:
Mindlessly repeat what they've read without thinking
Haven't used the camera
or Haven't used the camera properly set up.
I was shooting at dusk last night with a ND64 and CPL on my 22mm and it was working fine. Is slow with my Sigma 70mm, but then so are the rest of my cameras.
If you use the camera in moron mode with totally automatic AF select then you have no right to complain that it doesn't work as well as your DSLR in moron mode.
+1...faster AF and more pancake lenses, not the bulky stuff.c.d.embrey said:Why would I want to use BIG/HEAVY DSLR lenses on my mirrorless cameras?? When I dump my DSLRs the lenses will go as well. For me, NO adapter wanted or needed. YMMVRGF said:to be successful, need good (if not great AF) and an adaptor (already have this, but needs to continue to work) for EOS EF and EF-S lenses.
Depending upon the crop, my 500/600 could reach to nearly 2000mm equivalentc.d.embrey said:Why would I want to use BIG/HEAVY DSLR lenses on my mirrorless cameras??
