I look at those mirrorless MF bodies and want..

Then common sense takes over. .

Huge and (relatively) slow lenses, small sensor (for mf), and really not much I couldnt do with my current gear.

Still....

I don't know. it's still larger than a FF sensor. You are going to get more bigger pictures and be able to print larger photos.

It's one of those things tho. I would love to give it ago. Have it for like a week and shoot with it. The cost is stopping me from buying it. Perhaps one day when it's on the 3rd version or something. I am sure this camera is going to be a hit for Fuji.

How's the M5? I bought the M3 and haven't been too disappointed but I miss having a wired/wireless remote.

huge?

compared to what....

16-35mm (probably my smallest useable lens, I won't count the 50mm f/1.8)

300mm f/2.8 ? :-)

seriously, you can consider the f/3.5-6.3 as slow, but in the big scheme of things that's not what these cameras/lenses were built to compete with.
They are great for lightweight, low bulk packages where you would carry one around all day, whereas you'd more often leave the big guns at home (and miss whatever shots because you don't have a camera)

I'm liking it for what it is, rather than comparing it with what other cameras do better. Have posted some shots in the "Canon EOS M5- Share your pictures, thoughts, loves, concerns...." thread recently but have put some sample 18-150mm sooc jpegs here (external link) if you're interested...

Which is why I like m 4/3. Small cameras (although some of them aren't that small) AND small lenses. There is a huge range of native lenses, including relatively tiny, high quality, f2.8 zooms. Obviously there are compromises involved, but it works for me.

5D with 70-200 f2.8 IS vs my current m4/3 cameras with equivalent 35-100 f2.8 OIS

Having said that, if the M5 had been around a few years ago, I might have stuck with Canon. But they have only just started taking mirrorless seriously. Makes sense if you want to keep an SLR and mirrorless, to be able to share lenses.

Not used to shooting a sunset from opposite direction, but due to all the hills didnt have a choice. Also when there are no clouds you loose a ot of the drama of the sky.

For the first time in my daughters life (19) she got to see the milky way at night. There is more to life outside Auckland :)

This is looking out at Motutohe Island, very simalar to Goat Is except its missing all the fish .... which did suprise me how little we saw
