Hi
I'm interested in this thread because I have a 70D and have been thinking for quite some time about a back up camera, although I am very much a hobbyist. I simply would hate to be without my camera for more than a day or so, although I don't shoot every day.


Anyway am thinking about the M5, just wondering if any of you have used it, and what ideas about it???

Many thanks
Rose

The M5 costs more than a 70D at this point. So the 70D would be your backup camera? Are you looking to replace the 70D?

If you truly just want a backup camera, I would look at a very inexpensive but working camera that someone else has already taken the depreciation from. Maybe an M3 or a T5i to keep it newer. Or if it's truly a backup, as in, will sit forever until your 70D breaks, then look at an EOS-M1, XSi, 40D, etc, and keep it cheap.

Very best,

I used the EOS M for some food photography for a new restaurant yesterday. The rear LCD and grid overlay made overhead shots super easy to setup.

Very best,

No will keep the 70D .... would probably choose a lens to keep on n the M5 and use both cameras depending on what I'm shooting on n the day, and how much gear I want to carry that day. I walk the dog every day and tend to take the 70D with Sigma 18 -35 f. 8. It's a great combo but can be a bit heavy.

Thanks for the input.

Is the M3 as good as the M5 ... I'll read some reviews. I do like the Wifi and b touch screen on the 70D .... mainly use viewfinder but touch screen great for setting up long exposures.

Has anyone had a chance to compare the M10 with the M Classic (yes, I'm calling it the classic) ?

I'm planning on getting an M10 in the next month or so anyway, just wondering if the newer Digic processor has made an improvement in image quality to the aging 18mp sensor.

Wex have a good deal on them at the minute as a kit with the 15-45 STM. There's even a Canon cash back offer going.

Cheers

Gary.

Doing directly overhead shots of food is surprisingly difficult. Getting everything lined up while stretching to get the most height you can and still being able to see out of the viewfinder is a PITA. Half the time you are blocking your own light with your body holding the camera. If you set the camera on a tripod, often the tripod legs can get in the way or cast shadows.

So after some brainstorming, it finally clicked how I was going to set this up. I set the "table" (some custom boards) on the floor, set the food in the middle and put the M on an old tripod my dad gave me with a sandbag on top to hold it steady. Using the back screen as my viewfinder made it super easy to line up the dishes. I touched to focus and set the timer so that I could step back and not block any light.

Av mode f8, ISO 100.

Setup and some results.

Looks good ... i took a photo of a dish my sister prepared, with my M5, and it didn't do the food justice for reasons you mentioned.

Thanks! I think food is one of those things that's so simple that it's easy to get it wrong.

I picked up the 10-18 to go on my EOS M recently. I've been wanting a 17-40L or 16-35L for my 5D and figured this was worth a shot to see if I would use this focal range much. So far, I like it a lot and it seems like a good fit for the M. The range isn't as nice as the 16-35, but for 1/4 of the price, you can't beat the value. Looking forward to putting this thing thru it's paces soon.

To cover wide I use the Samyang/Rokinon 8mm fisheye, sometimes I do wish it was rectangular though.

I haven't posted in awhile but I have made more of an effort to get out and take pictures lately. These are some taken within the past month.

Just managed to order an elusive EF-M 18-150 for delivery tomorrow (Monday 9th). Can't find a lens hood for love nor money, so I'll have to be patient. Have found one subjective review (in Dutch) that says it's sharper than the EF-S 18-135 STM (via the adapter) even wide open, and have also found some sample images at low-res from one owner with an M5, but there's very little out there at the moment. I will try and post some sample pics and 100% crops ASAP taken on my original M, although the weather here in the UK is due to be grey and wet tomorrow, so please bear with me.

I will try and post some sample pics and 100% crops ASAP taken on my original M, although the weather here in the UK is due to be grey and wet tomorrow, so please bear with me.

Despite the weather being absolutely dire here today, I have managed a few shots from an open window across the valley, and a few indoors, enough to get a first impression. I won’t post these pics, as they are not ideal.

Firstly, the thing many people seem to be hung up about – yes the mount is plastic, just like the EF-M 55-200. I personally don’t have an issue with this at all. The rear element however is extremely close to the back of the lens; beware of finger marks or worse when putting the end-cap back on!

Physically it’s about the same size as the aforementioned EF-M 55-200, but it has a 55mm filter thread rather than 52mm on the 55-200. I mentioned that the lens hood is not yet available here in the UK, but as a stop-gap, the hood from the EF-M 11-22 fits, so it will give me some degree of physical protection in the short-term even if not ideal for light shielding.

Now for a quick image assessment:

At 18mm (f/3.5) there is quite a noticable amount of barrel distortion, but not unusual in a lens of this range. Corner to corner sharpness is good, even without the lens optimisation in DPP. There appears to be a small amount of CA, but nothing worth worrying about. Initial thoughts are that it is at least as sharp as the original EF-M 18-55, but I need better weather without rain to show you worthwhile examples.

At the telephoto end there is a small amount of pincushion distortion, but again, nothing unusual. Unlike the EF-M 55-200 which seems to soften towards the far end of the zoom (well mine does anyway), the EF-M 18-150 seems to retain a good level of detail and sharpness even at 150mm wide open (f/6.3). I don’t have an EF-S 18-135 STM to compare it with, but I do have the original non-USM IS version, and this EF-M 18-150 wipes the floor with it IMHO.

The weather promises to be brighter and clearer tomorrow, so I will do some more representative image tests. Even with the limited testing I’ve been able to achieve today, my first impressions are very good, and it will almost certainly be my walkabout lens of choice, with the EF-M 11-22 as the second.

I've been pretty impressed so far with this little combo. I haven't shot a lot with it yet, but here are a few sample pics I took on my lunch break at work. Typical gloomy winter day, but I was still happy with what I got.
