Canon quietly announced the eos m2 this week, but apparently you have to be in the land of the rising sun to get one. Thats right kids, the eos m2 is only coming to japan. Aside from wifi, the m2 is almost identical to its predecessor but the sensor now has built in phase detectors on it. Why doesn't it have their shiny new dual pixel af is completely beyond me, the tech seems to be made for mirrorless. Bad canon. Instead what canon did was use the sl1's sensor tech and claim that the af is now 2.3 times faster. Problem with that is that in mid light, 2.3 times faster still means around 1.2 seconds, yes, the first m is that slow.
It seems canon is making a real effort NOT to advance the M systemhttp://m.dpreview.com/news/2013/12/03/canon-announces-eos-m2-in-japan

Oh wow that must be a fantastic place to be in! Looks like a historically rich site, with lots of rust and stories. Thanks for the follow up

I can not WAIT to see some stuff!! I found that it can be very comfortable if you keep your index finger on the shutter and the one next to it on the front wheel. It feels very weird but once you get used to it it feels like the natural way to hold it

thanks! I like the cookies better in that one, the chocolate looks more thick and decadent, but the splash Im not fond of. I was late with the flash. Plus the color of the chocolate is a bit too salmon instead of rich brown. I had to add a whole lot of chocolate mix for the final one.

Very surreal & gorgeous - especially for a quick pull over & shoot shot!
If i had to stop the car, does it count?
thanks! We decided to skip the black friday madness and make an hour drive for a cup of coffee, it was almost sundown and the rain had just cleared. My cousin spotted it and said "id pull over for that!"

Come on man, quit teasing me, post something with the df, anything!

Seems like every rather expensive camera that is made out there ends up in the hands of people than can afford them, but not make proper USE of them. I find this so sad...
Am I alone felling this way ??
I don't feel this way & but now I'm gun shy about posting any Dƒ pictures of my own...
That being said, not posting anything doesn't really bother me at all because about 90% of all my shots are of unposted friends and family.
Glad you said that, you might be the perfect example of the difference. The difference is in the attitude. You haven't claimed the df is moving your photography forward on its own. You actually have a camera with which you CAN make some claims and yet you havent. You can go into your closet right now and shoot an iso 200k shot and say: "no camera can do this". But you havent, I suspect you wont. You have been clear the df is a gift from you to you, and that youre not a pro. And the shots im talking about are above and beyond abismal man, I know we all started somewhere and I would never step on a beginner, but that was not the mans (and a lot of current A owners) claims.
Im also 129% sure youre not an armchair photographer, your classic car stuff requires going outside, and you have all sorts of gear. I remember a simple photo of a church (or church like building) you did with the sigma dp that blew me away to bits. We're talking waaaaay back.

Sorry... I even question the pleasure those very people have with those cameras ?? What satisfaction is there owning a device that you cannot put to good use to save your life ?! How terribly frustrating ?? Am I alone felling this way ??
People do hate me for saying it, but its right. The majority of people so far have because its a small mirrorless full frame and therefore they think its vastly better than whatever they, and more importantly, every body else has. I saw the funniest post on fm the other day, the guy had jsut gotten his a7r, praising it to hell and back, and with those praises the most crapiest shots in the universe. At some point he just pointed the camera down and shot the grass in front of him. The next one was a lettuce leaf, then an ultra thin dof close up of a cow. I admit I didnt post gold with the a7, but I had it for like 2 hours, the man owns the thing, whats his excuse? He doesnt have one. Why? Because he genuinely feels that his a7r moved his photography to a new plateau. Placebo effect. Said so himself: "id like to see them say aps c or m43s is enough after this". Id really REALLY like to ask him what he intends to do with a 36 million pixel photo of a lettuce leaf. And then the obvious: "the evf doesnt look real like an ovf". Of course it doesnt, the name says it all, E-lec-tronic. The tip of the cup was when he complains that the evf showed color changes if he changed wb or settings, and that brightness is affected by exp. comp. A live preview of your photo is a bad thing?

looks like you got all the ranges covered, Id still get a 50 1.4, or an older ais 50 f1.2, then Youd have the ultimate walk around day/night/ or even pitch black camera lens combo. You could use that combination for the next 15 years

I did this with the EM1 and the 35-100, 65mm at f2.8, ISO 200, 1/320 of a sec. YN560III flash camera right on a 24x24 softbox, at 1/64 power
Its Officially Xmas...

If youre shooting just the fireworks in the sky you can actually hand hold the 5 second shot!
