I'm thinking about buying one of these kits for $400. If only as a small backup to my 5d2
$400 for the camera, 22, flash = pretty inexpensive. I guess the adaptor for ef is another $130? In videos the updated firmware didn't seem too slow to focus. Is it really that bad? X100 speed? Rx1 speed? 5d2, live view slow?Does the ef adaptor slow things down even more?
I'm not entirely sure how much use it would get, but it seems like a decent backup idea. And they're probably going to be totally gone soon, as the next one is on...Show more →
My opinion in short:
- The kit with 22mm and flash really inexpensive at $400.
- Being a Canon DSLR-user, the idea of being able to adapt all your EF-lenses is intriguing, however I find the size of lenses with adapter to contradict the size of the EOS M and the AF of the adapted lenses rather slow. I donīt think I will use the EOS M with EF lenses very much, and have only tested a few. As a backup camera in your bag if the DSLR fails it fits the bill.
- The AF-speed and accuracy with EF-M lenses is OK after firmware upgrade.
- The flash is a great little master flash unit which works well also on my 6D.
- The three EF-M lenses are all good, I particularly like the 11-22 giving me a very portable architecture/travel/ landscape kit.
