I love my M50. Add some modern focussing and a faster frame rate and it would be a step towards the 7D3 that I always wanted.
APS-C R please!!!
Look at Nikon, Sony and Even Fuji... the first two have awesome APS-C cameras with the same mount!!
And some really nice birding lenses for not even 3,5k€....(100-500 ).
Canon is doing it wrong to have 3 mounts at the same time!
I wouldn’t buy an M because of the mount, lenses and toyish build and design. Only the 6II would an option to me with build in evf!!! But not like this!!
A real 7D - like model is still missing for a long time now....
APS-C reach, weather sealing, OVF. The people that demand a true 7D successor all mean different things, but among them there is a vocal group that wants a rugged body for wildlife applications. And that's more of an R5 than R6, but they also want it at the low cost typically associated with APS-C. I still doubt they'll get what they want from Canon.Genuine question, what features has a 7D that are not covered with a R6?
Here in France we got some models in local stores but not that much (and sometimes not at all) and it seems to me the biggest sales are made from websites indeed.Whenever I'm travelling, if I find a camera store and try and stop in. None of them have ever had a single EOS M camera to show me. I'm intrigued by their size and could adapt my EF glass to it. But not willing to buy one sight unseen. I know they are bigger sellers outside of the US, so maybe less of an issue there. Just makes me wonder how committed to this market Canon really is. Seems like quite committed, given the amount of development still going on.
Wow. I have an M6 II and the 100-400mm II, and I dislike it immensely for extended use (like a few hours continual hand holding). I thus resorted to a monopod, but I lose flexibility depending on what I am shooting. I cannot imagine putting on your 400 2.8 or my 600 4.0, truly, unless it is on a bean bag. The balance would not be to my liking, but it clearly is ok for you.As a M6 II owner, you could not be more wrong about the "too big and too heavy" comment. I've had 400 2.8 on it and my 100-400 II just about lives on the adapter. It just works and just isnt an issue.
Why are they still continuing this series? They already have nice mirrorless models, nice DSLRs, nice compacts...
I think what they need to do is make a EOS M7 - and a Canon R7.
Get the M6 mark II + 22mm, 11-22mm, 32mm, Sigma 56mm.
No other system comes close to that package in quality, size + weight and usability.
Even the small RP is big and expensive with comparable lenses.
Thanks for this - I did look at the smallrig as a way of increasing the comfort / balance. I guess I was looking for something that gave me width like this one, and depth that a battery grip would offer.I've found that using the 100-400II on an M6II is vastly improved by the Smallrig LCC2516 L bracket. It adds an extra wooden finger grip that makes it easier to control the lens when your other hand can't support the lens. Like when you need to hold nature out of the way
I mostly use it for dragonflies, so weird angles and tall grass are par for the course.
With the Canon mount adapter EF-EOS M, you can mount any EF zoom on it.
