doggie outside pic looks like the AF totally missed and hit the fence.

Yep agree - should have mentioned that ... used to the 70D and how to use AF there reasonably well. Been practising :-) ... work ahead!

I'm torn on this body. I want the M to succeed, so they finally have reason to invest in making more fast glass other than the 22f2(there are no constant zooms at the moment), but I really like how cheap they've been a year after release. Canon put the refurb m3 on their site for $300 a couple of weeks ago. I paid $200 for the original M + 22f2 last year on ebay. And now, finally they release the M5 the one I wanted in the first place. How sweet would it be for refurbs to be $500 next Dec? lol

@Medicine man.... How's that larger focus square in real use? I find on the original M that since it's so big, a lot of the time it misses what I really wanted to be focused on. Is the focus square the same size on the LCD as it is in the viewfinder? I would be mostly using it via the viewfinder. Also, how is the black out time after taking a pic? Ugh, the original takes so freaking long before you can take another pic(one-shot).


And yes I know we can put ef lenses on via an adapter but native glass would be smaller and work faster, one less connection.

Sharing a love ... so light and easy to carry around, and image quality, when you get focus is awesome! I'm on a big learning curve, but will get there. With the kit 15 - 45 f/3.5 - 6.3

Used servo for this and got better focus ... am finding focus odd after the 70D

Random shot in the willows with dappled light, but overcast today, so not too much dynamic range. One shot focus

This is a view I shoot often so was curious about how it would come out - happy with it. As you can see it's a dull old day in NZ summer!

Large focus square is too big. Small is not small enough. When you choose small you loose AF-servo. As you'd expect when you use the large you won't always get the focus you want. I'm at work but memory says focus square is same size on LCD as in EVF. Black out time/EVF lag is good at 7fps, haven't shot at 9fps yet and probably won't. The real sucky part is when you press playback you'll wait 2 seconds. First thing to do with the M5 is to turn off auto-review.
One less connection really doesn't seem to show. I've now shot with two EF lenses and AF is snappy snappy in AF-single....nothing like Sony + Metabones + EF lenses; just no translation needed, the EM5 and EF lenses are speaking 'Canon'. I have no problems yet using EF lenses though the 400DOii was a bit slower and did hunt briefly compared to the 400/5.6 which I find strange.

I have a few EF-S lenses and haven't given them a quick go yet but I bet they will be great on the M5. I want the 10-18 to be fine :)

For me the whole acquisition was for the 400/5.6. I'll play around a bit but the 400/5.6 will be on the M5 90% of its life. When I'm using the bigger Canon stuff the M5 will be there in backup role probably wearing the kit lens.

Fine capture there Rose. The kit lens is fine. I did step back after realizing you have to push the triangle thingy and twist the lens to get operational...not what I'd want for walk-around-quick snaps unless you leave it in the position eh? so why even twist it back into the stowed position if only to save space?

looks great! can I ask where you sourced yours? I'm considering something lighter than my 1D3 (and xmas is just around the corner...)


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

I'm hanging out to get the adapter, and use my Tokina f/2.8 .... and all my other lenses! :-) But seriously .. for a snap I thought that to be better than okay.

And the kit doing ok too

I'm in NZ and Noel Leeming have them ... checked priceme and pricespy, but Noel Leeming as good as, and easily accessible in NZ.

Good luck.

While I have a bit of learning curve with focus etc, the sheer lightness of it, today, blew me away. And then to get crazy RAW files!!

I haven't worked out how to get the lens to nest back when being used ... would like that

It's really noisy down by the feet/belly but I'm impressed with the amount of detail in the face/beak.
Man, I'd love to swap out the 7d2 sensor for this one lol

Haven't had much time to play with the M5, but had to try two lenses while the little guy was having his dinner. These are SOOC. We have daylight balanced LED flood lights in the kitchen and family room which sometimes throws the color off just a little bit.

First, the 50 1.2

Next, the 22 2.0

Yeah I could have spent more time denoising but I wanted to see how the sensor did in crap light.
