YESSS this is absolutely perfect!!!!! got it.... !!!!! Thank YOU!

I'm just the opposite of you, I love the touch screen and use it all the time and is one of the reasons I bought the camera. I find it useful for still shots on a tripod or placed flat on a hard surface because it causes less shake when you can lightly touch the screen to take a shot instead of pushing the shutter button. You can also rapidly go thru the menui system as well as enlarging or scrolling thru the pics you've taken.

i don't ever use the tough shutter... my issue was when i'm walking around with the camera on, settings get changed because my shirt buttons of body touched and changes a setting.... or moves the focus points... that was annoying for user, i on;y use touch focus when shooting videos.

otherwise, the touch focus is useful. but not the touch screen when its accidentally changing settings..... drives me insane.

I don't even come close to shooting as many shots as you do so I can see how you are having this problem and I enjoyed your work on the previous page under various lighting conditions.

Thank You, Russ!!!!

One time i was about to get the shot, when i looked at the view finder i couldn't find the focus point... because i accidentally changed a setting and i missed the shot... so, for now, disabling the rear touch LCD for me is the solution. :-)

"Low light performance is pretty good as well!!!!"
Super shots David!!
My D750 Nikon will focus in -3EV light using the phase detection VF but cannot focus using live view (contrast detection on sensor) under the same condition. The M5 can do it, that's impressive! Which shows how good the dual pixel AF is on the sensor.

Ms Rosey,
How does the live view on your 70D compare with the M5 or do you ever use live view on your 70D? Does the newer sensor of the M5 have a better or faster focus or maybe more accurate focus using the on-sensor focus? Also in lower light situations does the M5 focus better in lower light than the 70D?

I've never done a direct comparison so can't really say. I think with some lenses the M5 may not focus as well in low light ... Rarely use the touch shutter for either. Probably only when I do long exposures, which I haven't played with much lately. Been a a few months since I had the 70D out. If I get time on days off next week, I'll try remember to do some comparison.

I ONLY use this camera to shoot Jpegs, and the PEGS are pretty decent, they do something weird to the skin of people....... But i'm comparing it to a 5d3 and a 1dx.... but, i love this camera!

me too.... basicly because PS CS-3 hasn't a clue how to deal with the M5 Raw files!

nicely shot by the way...


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5
