Mal, do you think the EOS-M with the 22mm pancake is comparable to say, the 35/2 IS? I know bokeh/shallow DOF will be better with FF + 35, but I mean all other things considered, the EOS-M and 22 is half the price...

Heya,

I have both.

The 35 F2 IS is a superior lens in every way. But, it's not like night & day. It's squabble over details. The 35 has better contrast, color, and is sharper to me, and of course, 4 stop IS.

But the 35 on my 5D or on one of my APS-C's, is a much larger package to carry and use, than my EOS-M with 22. I carry my EOS-M with 22 more often, at the end of the day, for daily walk around and in-house stuff. My 35 usually is used when I'm in "serious" mode or when doing portraits and stuff.

I much prefer my full frame & even my APS-C with my 35 F2 IS.
But, when I'm only in the mood for something small to carry, which is more the case for day to day walk around, general use, and when I'm out with family/friends/travel, I take the `M and 22.

Very best,

6D with 35IS is some sweet kit. The top available-light rig. Get it.

:) I had the 35is, but with the 50L i just wasn't using it. I want/need a compact camera, and the eos-m with 22 pancake is looking really, really good. And yes, the 6d + 35is was a brilliant combo, and I would've kept it if I didnt have the 50L.

Heya,

Did this tonight with the EOS-M and 22mm:

And this was a panorama with the 22mm, since it wasn't wide enough for the whole thing.

Nice as always Mal. The 22mm pancake samples thread is more than convincing.

Very best,

Where do you live?! lol Looks great! Is that HDR? Or did you just edit a single raw? Any filters or just the 22mm pancake?

I have had the M for a while and love it. Yes, it does not focus as fast as a dslr, but I do not use it as a dslr replacement. I use it the same way that I would use a P&S camera; a go everywhere type of camera. The one thing that I really like about the M is that you can usually take it into venues that don't otherwise allow "professional cameras" (which many venues claim any dslr with a lens of 4inches or longer) or "interchangeable lens" cameras (certain stadiums/concert venues actually use this term). With the 22 on, security looks at it as just another p&s.

As others have stated, the 90ex is a waste; the 270ex works very well indoors with the M.

Well I blame MalVeauX. All that love of the M, those incredible pictures. Dang him for costing me $$!
Ordered today. Thinking it will make a nice camera to always have in the vehicle for unplanned usage.
Have the EF adapter coming and ordered with the 22 pancake. I have an unused 18-135 non USM kit lens that might be better used on this for play time. Can't cry too much if I damage this as plan it to be my knock-around camera for when I don't want to pack up my 60D kit. Thanks everyone for the posts and info here.

Same here. He's a bad, bad person. :lol:

My camera should be here on Monday. The only extras I purchased with the 22mm pancake kit were an extra battery and dedicated 32GB SD card (I have mostly CF cards). I'm going to hold off buying the lens adapter, as I doubt I will want to use any of my regular-sized dSLR lenses with this compact camera, as those large lenses really defeat the purpose of why I bought the camera - "pocketability". Maybe I will want to try my 40mm pancake down the road, though. I already own a 270EX Speedlite, so I am set for a small external flash.

I like the M with the 22mm lens. Its small, fits in the shirt pocket and unless you shooting shooting stars, its very good. Even the close ups are good.

Yea I thought about passing on the adapter but it was reasonably priced as a white box item on Amazon and gives me some flexibility with my other lenses so the wife can shoot the other camera at the same time. I do need to get an extra battery though. I do plan on purchasing another large body but am waiting to see details on the new 7D or possibly some other new release body if any are rumored as I can wait. If nothing coming soon I will probably go with the 6D to have the better low light abilities.
