This is a mural on the wall of a business called "Dat Dawg". It is a restaurant that specializes in hot dogs. My french is a little rusty but I think it means "keep your hands off my dogs".

Just picked up a M5 a couple of weeks ago and trying to fit it into my wedding and general workflow, but have a question for all you who've been using it for a while. I'm a 30 year Canon veteran and a back button focus guy. I'm really liking the touch focus, but I use the same thumb to touch focus and back button focus. I know, use the left thumb to touch focus and the right to back button focus. but that feels unnatural, plus it kinda takes away from the manual focus after AF has focused or is trying to focus. I'm looking for consistency between my 3 bodies I guess (though the 5D MkIII's don't have touch).

What I'm asking, I guess, is there a way for it to just continuous AF while I'm touch focusing, or will I have to drag the box to what I want to focus on, then move my thumb over to the back button? Kinda confusing to describe. It'd be nice if the continuous AF option could be tied to the thumb focus and separate from the thumb focus because I don't want to half way depress the shutter release all the time because that wouldn't allow for the manual focusing.

Hope this kinda makes sense.

Any help would be, well, helpful.

Stephen

Are they working on it? Used it with my 600D when I had it, but didn't try it on the 70D

Was gifted a Minolta DSLR with 50 mm f/1.7 lens, so bought an adapter.

Hey Stephen,
I can't help you on the back button focus but I'd be interested to know how the M5 works out as a wedding camera.


SX10is, S90, d5100 (35mm1.8, 18-55mm, 55-200mm), d750 (28-300mm, 50mm 1.8, 35-70mm 2.8, 24-120mm f/4, 85mm 1.8G), EOS-M5 (EF-M 15-45mm, 18-150mm, EF 40mm 2.8)

I use the M5 with the adapter, 100L Macro and ringlight to do macro shots of the rings, flowers, etc... I use the EF-M 11-22 for wide, remote via iPhone shots down the aisle, and the 11-22 and 15-45 for pre wedding, getting ready shots, more so that I don't have to change lenses on the two 5D's. Still figuring where the M5 fits, but reception mounted high or on a mono pod held high and triggered via iPhone. I did have an old Stroboframe Press-T flash bracket, and that helps. It's just tiny, but cool. It's nowhere as versatile as a large body, but it's got its niche. I've only shot, well, 2 real weddings with it so far, so I'm still learning. Just want it to mirror how I have the large bodies so that everything is seamless.

That's pretty cool...thanks!!
I know it's not quite as fast as a DSLR and not bullt to be used professionally (ie only one card slot, not weather sealed etc.) but it is a quite capable camera and fun to use.

I've got the 11-22 and the 15-45, well, and a bunch of L glass to use with the adapter, and I can really see the difference with the L glass. I like the M5 for macro work as it allows me to dedicate a body to that purpose and keep a 16-35 and 24-70 on the Mk III's I have while the bride and her bridesmaids are getting ready. I may use it for wide portraits or groups while working with groomsmen or bridesmaids while I have a 24-70 and a 70-200 on the Mk III's. Don't know if that'll work out or not yet. Still looking at Saturday's photos to see if it'll work. But for traveling, and all the other times when I don't want to drag the whole kit out, or the idea of doing so makes me not want to go out and do something, I think it's perfect. The M glass isn't as crisp as the L, but sometimes convenience wins out, and an image is better than no image.

I'd love for the touch focus to have it's own parameters separate from the shutter release or the back button and I'd also LOVE to set the mega pixels when shooting RAW as I don't need a 24mp file. Even on my Mk III's, I half res the RAW and get beautiful, beautiful images from weddings without all the storage woes. My largest target is a 13 inch x 19 inch spread in a GraphiStudio album, and half res RAW on a Mk III with L glass is fantastic. I was getting beautiful 30 inch x 40 inch prints from a 1D and the same from my 1D Mk IIn for the past 10 years, and they weren't anywhere near the Mk III sensor wise. Tangent there...

I'll pop back here and there once I get more lens time with the M5. Busy production/lightroom/P​hotoshop time now, unfortunately.

Still playing with the Minolta 50 f/1.7, and loving it. Have learnt focus peaking as well which is a great tool!

Thanks ... really enjoyed playing, and the focus peaking is awesome!! Wish I'd tried it sooner, but usually use AF lenses cos my eyesight not 100%. Great to have this tool built in, and will try more of my manual focus lenses ...
