The price was the major tipping point AJ
I looked at the Fuji and checked out the "Xf-60mm F/2.4 Lens" being the one thing I wanted if I got the XA-1 or XE-1 and couldn't find it cheaper than $460
direct from China.
Just the lens!
So I went for the EOS-M (as I have a couple of lenses plus the 100mm macro)
Canon EOS M Camera (Black)
Canon EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
Canon EF-M 22mm f/2.0 STM Lens
Canon 90EX Speedlite
2 x Front Lens Caps
Battery Charger (LC-E12)
Battery Pack (LP-E12)
USB Cable (IFC-130U)
EOS DIGITAL Solution Disc
EOS Instruction Manual Disc x 2
Warranty from Canon Australia
Bonus Battery, Camera Bag and 16gig class10 SD Memory Card
Then the eos adapter $75 (post included)
and the FD adapter $13.68 (post included)
All for $528.68
The EF-M and FD-M adapter are glassless so there is no "1 f stop loss" or "clarity loss" with extra "cheap glass" as with the FD - EOS adapter, so the old FD 50mm F1.4 should give me just that.
My only real gripe with it is that my fingers touch the edge of the touch screen while shooting and move the focus point so I will invest in a silicon skin for $68 to stop me wrapping my hands around it so much.
The 22mm F2.0 is a cracker of a lens and the raynox 250 lend screws straight onto its 43mm filter thread
the firmware update is heaps faster and I have no issue with focus speed at all.
the adapters are 2 weeks away so enjoy the peace while it lasts
I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.
