Nice job I’ve done some focus stacking. In my experiences it is very painstaking.

Thanks. I'm new to this technique and still experimenting. Trying to find a brush technique that is close. That's speaking mainly of the feathering amount, a hard edge there is no transition so it doesn't blend as well. Getting there little by little.

This is a 4 frame stack:

M6 Mark II

My business trip took me to Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort. The pecan trees there are amazing!

Sigma EF-M lenses! (external link)

16 f/1.4
30 f/1.4
56 f/1.4

Kind of cool, though you might be just as well off to just get the EF-S version. This would make it easier to sell down the road or use on other cameras. If they are like the Sigma FE lenses, they are just the lens they already have with the adapter distance built in. This realization is what got me to stick with the old mounts and just leave the adapters on the cameras.

Yes, I think if I were going to step out of the EFM ecosystem for the M6 (which I doubt) I would go with EF lenses actually. Primarily because that works on my 5D4 as well.

Oooh, that 56mm f/1.4 looks exciting. That, along with the Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4, will make a great portrait set.

Hopefully the street price will not be the converted yen price right now they are showing 57,000 yen for the 16 and 56 and 48,000 yen for the 30 that would put these lens in the mid $400-mid $500

That's a lot - especially as one can only use them on M cameras.

Ok - just a few clicks on the Mark II and I love it. For one, the “click” is much more satisfying. I hated the shutter sound with the original M6. Focusing is quick and I think accurate (I haven’t gotten anything off the card yet). It focuses at least as well as the EOS R with the 100-400 + 2x TC (f/11). With the focus changes making this similar to the R, this is a very nice little camera. And the high speed shooting stuck me as very fast. Works great with my EVF-DC2 and it came with one as well, which was a surprise so I’m selling the black one that came with the camera.

Very happy with the decision to upgrade.

I agree, 56mm seems the most exciting to me cause it’s the sharpest and the smallest of the three and should reveal the true potential of the new 32.5MP, it’s also the first portrait lens for M system. I am curious how it will perform for 4k video and digital IS.

Those lenses are interesting. Glad that another manufacturer is getting into these bodies. :-)

Some additional stacking practice. ON1 Raw 2019 really struggled and it promptly choked on a 14 frame attempt. I'd done a few manually but always seem to miss a few areas. Nothing like spending all that time "carefully" brushing and masking to find patches that don't jump out till after they are merged down. Been at this session for 5 hours and I'm tired. :oops:

This was a better one with 11 frames. I let it go soft for the back couple inches.

The set-up.

Two speedlites, main in the small softbox and a reflector that took the bounce from the 580EX to light the spoon and fill some of the directional shadow.

One of those mental games to keep on it to learn. Lost track how many attempted stacks done manually and through ON1. Was quite frustrated last night with the coffee beans. Did a simpler set with a new subject. 6 frames for this one, the DOF is about 3/8" per frame.
