Thinking of the Canon M5


Recommended Posts

I am considering getting a new camera this year, now that the mirrorless cameras are beyond the introductory phase. I haven't kept up at all with what's available. But I wandered into a camera shop today and saw the Canon M5. Apparently it is their top end mirrorless, but I could be wrong. Anyhow, I have been a Canon guy ever since they came out with the first useful digital SLRs Before that I was all Nikon. But I guess I am also at a crossroad with regards to lenses, seeing as though the M lenses are different than my EF. At least I think I would have to get new lenses.

So if I am no longer married to Canon, perhaps it is time to play the field a bit?

Anyone have any advice about a new the new mirrorless picture boxes.

There are EF to M adaptors.

 

Thank you for that. But now I started look at the Sony A 6300 and 400 which appear to be better cameras. But if I don't have to buy new lenses for the Canon, I am now truly conflicted. :wacko:

One of the benefits of mirrorless is the compactness. The ef lenses, along with the adaptor, will negate that. 

 

Don't just purchase based on reviews. Go down and play with a working camera. 

The FujiFilm line is very popular. But, when I used my neighbor's for a day, I found setting it to my liking quite convoluted.

I have an M5 and although it produces some good quality images and the touchscreen interface is well implemented, I do find it a bit fiddly to use, however not nearly so bad as the Sony A6300 or 6500.  Go and play as Curt1591 says, it's the only way to get a good idea of what will suit you in the long term.  BTW the EF and EF-S lenses work very well with the M5 - I was in the same boat as you with a lot of investment in glass.
