Just for fun a black and white conversion, of what is iconic from my childhood.

Thanks - the Silver Efex edit really makes it.

Okay, I've mostly been goofing around with getting the settings they way I want them and just shooting candids. So here is a tripod shot, 5 seconds, no flash. At 18mm with the 18-150mm lens.

I'll try and get outside with it and get some more shots using the full range of the lens.

Might have to check price of that 18 - 150 lens .... it's looking good, and would make for a great holiday carry around kit

I like the range of the 18-150mm and it will be great for my wife as an all around lens. I also got the adapter to use my EF lenses. For me, this will be my extra body for the few times I want a backup along. And I may use it on motorcycle trips so I quit hauling the 7d2 along.

I took some flower shots and a few peacock photos yesterday, but it was overcast and I was shooting slow shutter speeds and higher ISO so I'm not really very happy with the results. I want to see what I get in good conditions before I judge the lens and camera too much.

Back home finally and can further study the M5.
The 18-150mm at B&H is currently pre-order, but they want $499 for it.
When I got the M I also ordered/received the 'kit' 15-45mm and the 55-200mm.
I think I should see what I can get out of them for a while before springing on the
18-150 but I'm with you guys and ladies (lady Rose :) in thinking it would be perfect
for one lens solution for travel.

Good advice Robert ... and when I saw price of it I decided to wait.

Out back with the M5+70-300L.
I like this combo, nice and tidy in the hand and I can
carry it without back strain.
This Blue-j was approx 30 feet away, so the cropability and pixel
density of the sensor are good.

The M5 has been a real pain to get...the shop I pre-ordered thru simply didn't get enough in, and I finally decided to cancel and order thru another. It took quite a bit of searching, and finally came in today. Ava was my somewhat reluctant model for the first few shots. Ef-m 22 and 300l experiments...more to follow!

If I take enough pictures, at least one of them should turn out...maybe

I just made the switch to Sony. Picked up in a6500. Mainly because of the native lens selection. Would really like to avoid an adapter. That said, I Handled the M5 in a shop today. Very Nice looking little "mini" DSLR. Autofocus selection point via the touchscreen seemed very similar in response performance to the a6500. I will admit that I'm SUPER envious of the LCD screen. Much much nicer than the a6500. Tell me this though, is there any way to set up a pseudo back button focus on the M5? There are a couple buttons back there but none that seem like they'd work real well for BBF. I guess if it's possible to set up one could get used to just about anything.

Cory, I too use BBF on about 8 different camera bodies EXCEPT the M5 :(
It's just the physical layout. I think it can be done mapping but even if you can
the grip of the body just wouldn't work for me. So I never attempted the mapping.
It is what it is. I suppose the huge LCD is the reason, but with the extremely responsive
touch screen you have BBTF (back button thumb focus) anytime you want, if that is any
good.

I use the * button for focus just like I did on my 20D. My first concern was also that the placement would be awful and horrifically uncomfortable, but I will say it's actually just fine. After handling the camera for a couple of days I feel right at home.


Troubleshooting 101 (see also: LightRules,perryge):
1) RTFM.
2) Repeat Step 1.
