I would like to know if anyone has tried to use a Tamron 18 - 200 Di lll on a Canon M3 , I am aware that there were problems back in 2014 -2015. Since the M5 is due out later this month is it worth getting the Tamron 18 -200?
Thanks
Rick

I tried it on the M and was not happy with the performance. It was generally soft in the corners no matter how much I stopped it down but had good center sharpness. It was also fairly large and heavy.

I would really look at the new EF-M Canon 18-150mm lens. I believe it will be a better alternative.

Any thoughts/recommendatio​ns for batteries for the M3 if I don't want to pay loads of money for Canon original batteries?
I understand that a lot of people recommend Wasabi, but they aren't - unfortunately - that easy to buy in Europe...

I've also read that you won't have any indication on battery charge with third party batteries... Is that true for everything not Canon, or is it possible to get non-canon batteries that does show charge on the camera display?


Cameras: EOS M & M3 --- Lenses: 22mm EF-M, 18-55mm EF-M, FD 50mm f/1.4, EF-S 55-250mm IS II, Sigma 600mm f/8
Disclaimer:The fact that I'm slightly color blind with a crappy monitor and have little or no clue about PP doesn't prevent me from enjoying holding a camera - it just makes it harder to make my photos look normal to you...

It's true. The LP-E17's are encoded and they haven't been cracked, so any 3rd party batteries won't register the capacity. Not only that but I believe the Canon charger won't charge them.

That is a fact the Canon charger will not charge 3rd party batteries.

Ok, thanks!

I suppose I'll have to live with a camera that just "dies" between photos then...

Browsing Amazon Spain an original lp-e17 will take me back just over 50€ while I can get 2 batteries and an usb-charger (love those after realizing that powerbanks works for more than emergency charging my phone while out and about) for 20-30€.

Simple solution just go on e-bay find a couple of aftermarket batteries that come with a charger. Been there done that cheap enough.

Took the EOS M3 and EF-M 11-22mm lens to the Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane for the Xmas Lights show. I was very impressed with the results.:-)

Managed to balance the camera on a bean bag on the rail of a wooden bridge for this 2 sec shot. No-one was on the bridge at the time, so I got away with it as the bridge vibrated as folks walked across.

Cheers

Dennis

Enjoyed seeing the pics here. Recently ordered a refurb from Canon. While I had been mulling this decision: M3, 18-55 and adapter sold out and same for the white version. Oh well, snooze ya loose. Found the 18-55 at KEH for under $100 so my total purchase came out to $399 less the added taxes/shipping. The M5 was more $$ than I wanted for a casual carry rig. Excited to get this and see how it does for me.

I have the original M and the M3, is it just me or is the playback and video rec button kinda hard to press? it doesnt have a tactile click feel to it.

M3 arrived on the 20'th. Enjoying the interface and the features. Really like the MF focus peaking, comes in handy. Wife baked some cookies up so I snapped a few off. The 18-55 comes in tomorrow so put the 40mm STM to tray some food shots:
