Honestly I'm blown away right now by the R6 and honestly dumbfounded.

I've owned the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM for years now. I got it when I had my 6DII and used it on the M5 a few times but it was always way too soft wide open for my liking. I even tried using it on the A7III and found t way too soft on that body too so it has always just sat around collecting dust.

I figured that since I have the adapter now, I might as well give it a try so I put it on the R6 and WOW, it's like a completely different lens. The sharpness I'm seeing wide open I was never able to get with any of my other bodies. I honestly have no idea why it performs so much better on the R6 but I will actually use it now as I'm that impressed with it!

The Tamron did look a bit soft around 300mm on the M5 but it's also tack sharp on the R6 at 300mm. I find myself increasing ISO but not shutter speed thanks to how well the IBIS works too.

Well, you have larger pixels now, so 100% pixel views are going to look sharper, even with the same analog focus and stability; or, you may have better focus now and/or IBIS is helping a lot where there was no stabilization in the lens before at all.

The 50mm stm is essentially used as my "Lens Cap" for the R5,. it's always on it (unless I have something else on :) )

Agreed, it's made that lens even better.

That is good to hear, I was thinking of the use of some of my existing lenses, like the 50mm f1.8 STM if I were to make the jump to ML

I purchased the R6 book you recommended. I believe it will be a great resource. I actually started to read it, starting at the beginning instead of jumping to parts I think would be more interesting.
I’ve just joined this forum a couple of weeks ago and this is my first post.
I currently have a T3i, about 10 to 15 years old. We’re planning an African Safari in February 2022. Since it’s a once in a lifetime trip, I want a better camera with great autofocus. So, I’ll be ordering an R6 shortly. I’ve been learning a lot from this forum and my thanks to all who contribute.

Same here. When 100-400 takes a nap, 50mm guards the R5. :-)

For a person who only needs up to 400mm, the Tamron and Sigma zooms are great bang for the buck, especially on cameras like the R5 and R6, and also if you're going to stop down to f/8 anyway, for DOF. The AF is a little slower than with Canon L lenses, but not all that slow to make them intolerable, as some 3rd-party zooms can be with DSLRs (and difficult to do MFA with).

Yeah they definitely are, especially for the price you pay for them. I looked at the Sigma but ultimately went for the Tamron as I prefer their zooms and also it has a tripod collar support which is a big + for me since I’ll be using it for cityscapes a lot.

Yes I understand larger pixels would do this but even compared to on the A7III which is full frame, it’s like a completely different lens. The only thing I can credit it to would be the AF is that much better that it’s actually nailing the shots now.

That’s usually the RF 35mm f/1.8 for me! Haha

Daniel, your images don’t show as they’re too large. 1600px is max and yours are 1601! :lol:

Funny how the small thumbnails in my preview window do show the images. Kinda makes sense...

Eye auto-focus grabbed the eye and ignored the falling snow. Shot through a window from inside the house.

Very interesting you post this -- I was thinking maybe I should have gone with a higher-MP and cheaper Z7 but saw a thread on the Z7 II AF-C during snow shooting a model and the camera was racking focus and hitting the snowflakes and continuously losing the model!

Yeah, staying with my R6 lol :D
