I don't suppose anyone in here has the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC Art and uses it with the M5?

I want something with a decent wide aperture and isn't too large and this appears to fit the profile of what I want.

closest I've got is a 50mm f/1.8 MK II (which has been the go-to dust cap on my EOS500 for a number of years)

I have the Sigma, and although I don't have an M5 I did use the 30mm f/1.4 Art on my M3 which worked great. Now I am selling this lens because I have the 18-35 Art and don't need both, so if anyone is interested please check out the sales section.

I have to too but the STM version. I personally don't like this lens purely because it's too long focal length wise and I would prefer my 6D/85 f/1.4 combo.

How did it perform wide open? Thanks but I live in Australia so with conversion and shipping would probably cost the same to buy new here haha

The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Art works well wide open, but is sharper when stopped down to 1.8 or 2.2. It makes a great family/portrait lens on a crop sensor with fast AF and minimal distortion.

The more I look at it the more I think I'm better off just sticking with the 22mm f2. I know once I get my 6D2 I'll probably only use that so I should probably focus on saving for the 16-35mm f4L instead. Thanks for the responses though.

I've been editing some photos from a few weeks back. I don't usually do these kinds of edits but thought I would try have some fun to see how much I can do with the M5 files.

So here is the original shot SOOC imported into Lightroom (11mm, ISO 100, 1/320th, f/5.6).

IMAGE: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4214/35095535204_29229aa2ba_b.jpg

So then I added +2.02 Exposure, -100 Highlights and +100 shadows (with some other adjustments e.g clarity, blacks, white and tone curve) and got this

IMAGE: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4291/35546880550_0f96b6c130_b.jpg

Pretty impressive from the M5 right? This is a 100% crop from the bottom left area of the image which is surprisingly clean

A few from this thing that I'm really liking in a lot of ways that I never expected.

Hey guys!

Some really nice pictures here. I am thinking to buy the M5 because i have some Canon lenses and i think it would be a great camera for travel, landscape, even some wildlife.
But i am very sensible about build quality and simply hate when something is flimsy or not put together properly. Read some forum posts elsewhere about the flimsy battery door
and some play the grip has on the M5. I have a 7D2 and don't expect same level on BQ but something decent with a feel of quality.

Tried to go to camera shops to handle it myself but couldn't find any with an M5 on display. What do you think about the build quality of this camera?

I have had no concerns with mine and think the two "issues" you mention are a little over blown.

I would not call the battery door "flimsy". While not as robust as the doors on the DSLR models, it is solid and snaps firmly and securely in place.

The "give" on the grip I believe is simply a matter of a molded plastic piece that doesn't have .000 tolerance to the surface it is mounted too. If you squeeze harder than ever necessary on the grip, you will notice a slight give. I had my M5 for about a month before I heard of the issue and had not ever noticed it. Once I read Bantu it, I went and squeezed my grip and sure enough felt the ever so slight give under pressure.

Unless you really ham fist it, I doubt you would be aware of it without have read of it.
