The last image was deliberately desaturated because the bright blue paint (rusty as it was) looked overly colorful. Both shots taken with a CPL filter.

The sharpness of the lens is particularly obvious with architecture.

No Circular Polarizer was used on these shots.

I'm hungry again now. The staff in this restaurant allowed me to photograph some food as it was set out for collection by the waiting staff. The sunset was taken through my open car window when stopped in traffic.

Thanks for all the images, this lens does look really good!

Which store did you get yours from? I'm in Sydney too.

nero_design, your images are awesome!

I’m intrigued by this lens. I normally don’t use primes or this focal length or wide apertures, but the lens’ specs and the images I’ve seen are tempting me to get it and then go out and find uses for it!

Are there any other Canon non-L lenses with a focus limit switch like this one has? I don’t think I’ve ever seen one. That, and the large focus ring, make me think this is a Canon “We're not calling it an L lens because it’s not full frame but... (wink wink)” lens, kinda like the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8.

Mike

EDIT: I think some of the real early, 1987-era EF non-L lenses had a focus limit switch. I’ve personally been in the EOS ecosystem since late 1992 and I don’t recall any since then that have had it.

If an Admin or Moderator comes across this post, can they arrange to add this lens to the Gear List please?

<OFF TOPIC>
According to the photos in the “Lens Gallery” at the “Canon Camera Museum” (https://global.canon …tml?t=lens&s=ef​&sort=old) (external link), the original 1987 versions of the non-L 100-300 f/5.6, 70-210 f/4, and 50-200 f/3.5-4.5 all had focus limit switches. There were also L versions of the 100-300 and 50-200 that looked similar to the non-L versions, but I recall reading somewhere not too long ago that the non-L versions were very plasticky construction and not very good optically.

I do remember that in the early 1990s, the 100-300 f/5.6L was a favorite among wildlife photographers. AF was slow, even among non-USM lenses at that time, but the images were tack sharp.

Just found this thread. I love the M series; particularly the M3 and M6. The size and ergonomics are hard to beat. I just got the M6 kit with 15-45. Nice little kit lens. I like that range better than the 18-55 that came with my M3. I LOVE the 22. Gives you the best possible portability and the results continually blow me away. How is the 11-22? I'm a bit bummed that it's really not much wider than the 15-45. The M kit is just so beautifully compact.

When the focal lengths get that small, every mm is a big difference. For an APS-C size sensor (like the M series), at 15mm, your horizontal field of view is 74 degrees. At 11mm, it's 91. That's 23% wider.

Hi there Dlee13. I picked mine up from Digi Direct in Sydney's CBD. It ought to be available across all the different stores by now.
I apologize for not replying sooner but only just revisited this thread.

I tend to prefer Prime lenses for their sharpness. It's a small, lightweight alternative to the EF 35mm f/1.4L USM II lens with a much friendlier price-tag. For EOS M owners it performs well.

I can't say I've seen one before on a non-L lens. Mind you, I haven't really looked.

No problem. I hardly use my M5 now so doubt I'll get it but was just wondering as since moving to Sydney I haven't really found a store I particularly like haha.

The mentioned store treated me really bad. I bought 1DX2 which came with (Canon promotion) 600 EXII RT flash. Store was jam packed, big sales on.
Salesman took a fair while locating the flash. When I got home I noticed he had given me 600 EX RT (not the II).
It was now after closing time. Called back next morning, salesman was not in, but I was told "no problem" bring it back in and well give you the right one"
When I returned salesman swore that he had given me the correct flash. No way could he have possibly given me the flash I had in my hand.

I was, to say the least, unhappy. I left the store with the correct flash (after some raised voice and swearing from me).
I was given the correct flash, according to the salesman, as "a gesture of good will"

So, his version, I spent 7K (7.5K with CFast card) as a way of ripping them off the price difference of a 600EXII and a 600EX!

At one point he mentioned that the serial number on my receipt did not match the flash I had brought back!
That was what triggered the raised voice and swearing.
He was just worried about the fact he had made a mistake and would be in trouble with the boss.

I was concerned that not only did I not get the correct flash, I effectively had no proof of ownership due to the serial number not matching what I was given.
So he made two mistakes in the one transaction.

This was at the King st store. I was a regular customer.

I have since found Ben (owner) at Camera warehouse at Tempe to be worth recommending. D*ckheads Direct, they won't get another cent of mine.

Interesting to hear that. I've been in Sydney only 1.5 years and have only shopped at George's, Digidirect that you went to and Digital Camera Warehouse as well.

George's gave me excellent service when I bought my 6D Mark II but when it came to the A7III, they lied about stock to me and a lot of other people and would not give a proper date so I ended up cancelling with them and getting through Camera Pro (who are in QLD but I ordered on a Thursday and had the body in my hand on a Friday).

For me Digi have just been very average, I thankfully didn't get any bad treatment but there was no above and beyond customer service either.

DigitalCameraWarehouse have been ok but when I bought some sensor cleaning kit, they kept trying to talk me out of it and say to get a professional to do it which annoyed me. In other countries, sensor cleaning is only about $25 but here they charge $100+ so I much rather do it myself.

I guess Nero_design is lucky they didn't have any bad experience.
