I have bought some FD lenses to test with M.

This is one of my first shots with a newFD 200mm F4.0 lens:

Here is one with newFD 50mm 3.5 macro:

Bought also newFD 50mm 1.8 lens and (old) FD300mm S.C. 5.6 lens. Although I could live with the 50mm 1.8 lens and could use also the 200mm lens, I have decided to keep the 50mm F3.5 macro and sell others.

My thinking for the future of "my" M system is to have it as a small macro camera and buy something bigger with a viewfinder as a body for tele lenses. I bought an LCD viewfinder for the M, which I used with the 200mm lens, and quite soon realized that I could be more happy with a dslr, like 70D, for tele shooting. But then again, that is quite obvious.

Hopefully Canon is not going to announce a version of M with a good EFV right after I decide to buy the 70D.

70D. EF 70-300mm L, Tamron 90mm F2.8 VC and Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 OS HSM.

Love the LCD viewfinder for video but I can't stand it for stills.

Hi - has anyone tried the sigma 17-70mm 2.8-4.0 contemporary (new version) lens on their EOS M w/ the adapter? I am wondering how well it focuses. I have read that the newer lenses from sigma focus as fast as the 22mm prime.

THanks!

If you're just going to shoot it anyway, why not try it? It definitely sounds like an issue with your camera, I find that most of the AF claims on the M are vastly exaggerated, I don't think it's much if any slower than my X-E1. I've gotten plenty of decent moving subject and candid street shots with mine. I still use mine just about every day, it's awesome having such awesome IQ and DOF control in my pocket :cool: Even my Fuji can't fill that gap.

I have to agree, I have used the x100 and XE1 a lot as my brother owns them and I would not say they are any better than the EOS-M's that I have played with. For whatever reason the slow focus on the Fuji's gets a pass and the EOS M did not. Out on dpreview in particular there is a lot mirrorless froth and a lot of Canon and Nikon hate. Not really sure why.

For its size the M relative to the pictures it takes the M can't be beat. I just got one of the last ones that B&H had. As they say the price is right.

It's probably because the Fuji cameras fill a niche that no other manufacturers really touch so people forgive the bad AF, the M is very similar to a NEX 3, but with slower focus (but much better lenses imo). That said, I still love my M :cool:

Major landscaping project today. Used the M to document... These are the more interesting "artistic" type photos.

I think the truth is people like them because they look like Leica's and they are "retro" looking. SLR's moved away from the very dials that are the big new thing because there are faster ways to handle camera functions. The truth is whatever floats people's boats but retro is not better, its just retro. I am glad that Canon has no interest in this because I think its a step back.

Everyone says that (including me) until they try it. I definitely wouldn't want all retro controls for sports or any fast action shooting, but for static subjects I do find that it makes me think more about my exposure settings. I wish I had an ISO dial too like the new X-T1.

And there's way more to the Fuji's than the retro looks and controls. Having the hybrid VF in the X100(s) and X-Pro1 is a huge attraction to some. Then you have the built in ND and leaf shutters of the X100(s) and I can personally attest to the capability of the X-trans sensor, it's not a marketing gimmick, it's noticeably sharper than any other crop sensor camera I've shot with. Plus Fuji's lenses are top notch.

As I've said before, I love my M, but to many it's a camera that can be filled by others (Olympus PEN, Sony NEX, Panasonic GH series, etc), the X-line offers something different from the rest.

Plus, they look sweet!  :p :lol:

Nice profile of the fly.

As I really don't like the AF of the M (no matter that it actually is quite decent), and I seldom do like AF at all, I too have considered the M as MF only camera.

How do you like FD lenses with M? You seem to have quite a selection of FD lenses. Which of the lenses do you like to use with M and why?

Here are a couple of shots of a (wild) Eastern Water Dragon taken in the Roma Street parklands in Brisbane with the EOS M.

The full body shot was taken with the EOS M, Canon EFM adapter and Canon EF-S 60mm F2.8 macro lens.

The head only shot was taken with the EOS M and EFM 18-55mm F3.5/5.6 lens.

Cheers

Dennis

Awesome shots. Which do you think is sharper?
