So I spent quite a while debating between the 80D and the M5. I wanted an everyday camera, but it had to fill the niche of crop-sensor complement for airshows to my 5D III. I was really disappointed in the AF performance of the M3 but loved the IQ and wanted to give it another shot

Long story short, I bought the M5 on a whim because of a cashback sale and I think it might be the best camera I've ever owned. The C-AF is so much better than the reviewers make it out to be, it's at worst usable for relatively predictably moving targets and the burst rate and buffer both at least good enough. The ergonomics are absolutely perfect and I actually find the EF-S lenses to balance almost perfectly.

Only two things that really bug me are 1. the stupid EVF/screen transition functionality. It's not as smooth as it needs to be and 2. if the G5X can handle a fully articulated screen, so can a $1,000 mirrorless camera

I'm so glad I got this instead of the 80D and I'm pumped to start sharing images off it. Now if only Canon would release some real EF-M glass that doesn't cost a fortune... or let Sigma and Tamron do it for them :)

Curious what you folks are using for a bag or pack for this camera?

nothing as yet, I fling it over my shoulder & off I go...

[If I wanted to take around a kit of bits, the 1D3 sits in a bag with other stuff - haven't used it since Christmas though...]


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

Took a ferry from Waterfront across to Devonport (Auckland NZ), and took this slightly long exposure using Haida ten stop on the Tokina 11 - 16 f/2.8.

very nice! (just a little nitpicky - if you can, straighten the horizons on anything with water in it, as it annoys the horizon-straighteners among us...)

I wasn't going to say anything, but since someone else did I'll ditto that.

Assuming you used a tripod, the electronic level make it easy to even things up when shooting.

Still playing about with my M5. Its doing a great job as a second camera hiking about with the 7D2. Also its doing a great job at me actually trying new things out. Though not new I havenĀ“t tried much macro so heres a tryout shooting a tiny clump of moss and a wierd alien lanscape of Lichen (Ithink). Works nicely with the wifes 100 Macro but I have also started using the EFS 60 macro wihich I also find great. Having done hardly any macro am not experienced enough to say but would be suprised if the Canon macro crowd dont latch on to this camera as with manual focus and focus peaking its great and works well with exsisting lenses.

...

I have a Crumpler 5 Million Dollar Home that is perfect. Had it for some time ... was too small for DSLR and multiple lenses, but is perfect for M5 and extra lenses.

This is my first shot with the 11-22mm and I quite like the lens. It's actually a panorama of 6 vertical shots which were handheld but went together nicely in Lightroom.

Funny you mention doing the panorama, I did the same thing on my first outing with the M5 and the 11-22, although I hadn't planned it at all so there's a bit of distortion despite my fiddling with the settings when I merged it in Lightroom. Still, came out better than expected given it was a merge of two images taken horizontally with no real intent to keep them, I was just getting a feel for the field of view.

The distortion is barely noticeable for me and it looks great so don't worry!

I don't usually pull shadows as the noise it creates on my 6D but the M5 does a really great job for shadow detail. I pulled the shadows by +88 in LR and the image still does really well. If this was a FF sensor body, I could imagine it being my perfect camera :D

These are really just snaps as a record of my holiday, but thought you might be interested in this beach. It's known as Hot Water Beach because at low tide in one particular place there's Hot Springs. People take a spade and dig a hole and have a dunk in the warm water. It's VERY popular as you can see ... On an area called the Coromandel peninsula, which has wonderful beaches and is very scenic. Taken with the 22 f/2.

Looking in the other direction ... more or less south.

Distortion maybe to a supreme pixel peeper. I think it turned out great.
