yea its brilliant innitI'm really liking the 5D4. The touch screen I didn't consider a buying point, but it's far more useful than I though it would be. I really like the configurable AF buttons so I can easily access different setups all on the fly. If only they could add minimum shutter speed to the setting it would be perfect.
After a few days of research / talking to a few friends... (Maybe should have posted on here but meh...)
Canon EOS M3 with EF-M 15-45 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens
Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 STM Lens
Lexar Professional 633x 64GB SDXC UHS-I Card (fastest it supports)
Lowepro Dashpoint 30 Bag
Spudz SPBK20 10x10 Micro Fibre Lens Cloth
2 x Caps for the 49 & 43mm (should fit both lenses?)
Canon Remote Control RC-06 (Wanted for family shots / long exposure / HDR)
All en-route, maybe by weekend, probably Monday.
Decent upgrade from the Samsung WB700
Fair enough, the main appeal was the pancake lens so the camera can be pocketed / carried around.
The Olympus and Sony a6000 were also considered - Image quality on the M3 seems grand though?
The lenses cheaper than Sony's. Wanted the bigger sensor for night time shots (in Scotland) vs the Olympus.
Why is it such a bad choice?
But wont fix the shocking lineup of lenses.Thing is, if he likes the format and starts reaching the M3's limits then he'll be able to sell it on and upgrade to the M5/M6 easily enough.
There is a couple that are very very small. maybe just 1/2cm biggerFair enough I take it there ARE pancake lenses available for the Sony a6000 (my strongest 2nd choice) at a reasonable price?
I couldn't find any native ones and portability was high on the priorities for me.
Can take the zoom lens out when going for small animal shooting / highland cattle but liked the "can fit in pocket" idea for day to day use.
I'll probably get shot straight down here but I can't understand the rationale behind getting a separate 'travel' set up when you already have a high-end system.
Is the portability of a DSLR so bad that it's worth the expense and hassle of a whole separate system just for travelling with?
Don't get me wrong I appreciate it's a lot more compact and portable but personally I'd happily put up with carting a DSLR around rather than buying into a whole 'nother system.
This is an honest question btw, I'm not having a 'pop' or anything
