Anyway, while I was doing that, I found another aspect of mirrorless that I need to adjust to, namely, using a polarizer. With a DSLR, I'm used to being able to rotate the polarizer and immediately see its effect in the viewfinder. On the M5, as I rotated the polarizer and it darkened and lightened the sky, the AE system would adjust the shutter or ISO (I was shooting in Av) and change the brightness in the EVF to keep things somewhat uniform. I found that this, combined with the way the EVF shows colors, made it more difficult to know when the polarizer was set just the way I wanted.

From just looking through the images I took quickly, it looks like I got the polarizer right on with some of them, and way off with others.

Any words of wisdom on polarizer use from the more experienced mirrorless users around here?

Thanks in advance!
Mike

Haven't your camera, but I've used one on my Olympus EM5.
Never had any issues with it (polariser), but I shoot with full control over my exposure and the camera doesn't make those annoying changes.
I'd imagine you've a setting to keep the exposure you want (exposure lock?).
Live view will then allow you to see what the filter does as you rotate, whilst not changing the settings.
I use it a lot on the EM5, and get it functioning as I want.

I love these EF-M cameras so much. I am trying to make 1 thread to unify all users of this mount, as each individual body doesn't have enough contributors.

Thanks for that advice. I'll have to look into it. I think it has AE lock (I know the Canon DSLRs I've used have it, but I've never really paid attention to it on the M5). I generally shoot Av with auto-ISO, so it would be a pain to switch to fully manual each time. OTOH, I just need to do it enough to adjust the polarizer, and I don't really use the polarizer that often.

Does the M5 have custom buttons? Set one to change from iso auto to iso xxxx, or take over that area.
AE lock would/should work though I imagine.

Well, while I’m not ‘officially’ part of the ownership crew, I did get my wife a new camera. She played around with it, paired it with her iPhone, downloaded some shots, and sent me one to share. She’s coming from a 5D classic and 24-105L which I bought her many years ago.

This was with an M5 and 18-150M, from what she told me. Maybe I’ll have the opportunity to play around with it, next week, once I’m back home. ;)

Just a slight crop, and converted to B&W. Not much else.

Nice - just a head's up, the default setting for the touchscreen is permanently on, even when you're looking thru the viewfinder so if you're wondering why your nose keeps selecting focus points that you didn't want..... ;-)a

Right on. I'll let her know. Thx. :)

She's reading the manual, and setting things up how she likes them...after all, it is hers. ;)

I'm still on the fence...but, I don't mind my 1Dx and 85L II. It's all I've used for about 6 years, now. ;)

Put that 85mm 1.2 L ii on the M5 with a Viltrox speedbooster and it should become like an 85mm 0.95 or 1.0 ... I believe the x 0.71 factor retains the 85mm nature of the lens. Apparently the image quality holds together very good according to several reviews.

I found my 16-35 f/4 light enough with the M5 to bypass a Rokinon 12mm 2.0 I desired. and the Viltrox unit should make the wide zoom function f/2.8. The 16mm should work like 16mm whereas the 12mm ef-m Rokinon would be like 18mm equiv.

One of these days, I'll borrow her cam/canon adapter and put the 85 to the test. I have a good base to test it from, given I know how it performs on the 1Dx. :)

I took this with an adapted EF 50 1.8 stm, amazed how light this kit is, compared to my 1Dx/85L. Perhaps a bit too small for me on a shoot, but, it's fun to use nonetheless for not so serious stuff.

The tardis is about 2-3 inches tall...so, mfd is pretty close. I swiped this from her FB so there may be some compression issues. More than likely, nothing done to the image except uploaded to phone, and posted to FB, then here.

I finally had a chance to use the M5/85L today, while she was out and about. Nothing spectacular, in terms of a 'subject' but, I realized the combo (for me, personally) is not a handholdable combo. I shake too much...so, focus keeps moving/changing using autofocus vs. manual (which I like better, due to focus peeking in this scenario).

Though, the image quality is just fine, for an image taken with only window light. Yes, there is some fringing due to CA, but, nothing that I don't recognize in high contrast/lighting situations like this with the 85.

Anyhow, here's the pic...just a test shot wide open and hand-held. :)
