    Lens choice for venice

    I took a D700 and 24-120 f4, never felt I needed wider/longer/faster, VR was handy to have.

    Nikon mirrorless definitely on the way

    I’m sure he is, and I’m also sure they won’t be the only cameras he takes along.

    Nikon mirrorless definitely on the way

    Single card slot should kill it stone dead for the wedding market, expect there will be a dual slot ‘pro’ model at some point though.

    Shutter count new camera

    I had an M5 like that from HDEW, didn’t even prompt me to set the time when I turned it on first time. Swapped it out no issues though.

    Leica Q

    I had one for a few months, couldn’t really fault it, but didn’t get enough use to justify keeping such an expensive camera for occasional use. Also I did probably feel too cautious using it out and about, have since replaced with a GX8 and 15mm 1.7 which isn’t a million miles away in terms of...

    What have I done wrong?

    Is long exposure noise reduction on? If so it could be that, after an exposure it records the sensor noise for the same length of time and does some calculation to reduce the noise in the shot. It’s been a while since I had a Nikon but I don’t think it displays anything on the screen during the...

    MPB

    I bought a Leica Q from them for £2600, asked them for a quote to buy back a few months later and it was something like £1850, I expected more and told them so, they increased the offer to £1900 saying “margins are very tight” !

    Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G on D610 - back focus issue

    Under what light are you focusing when testing? If it’s artificial light this AF module has been known to have issues, I’ve experienced them myself with 1.8 primes on the the D600 and there’s a long thread here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3782773

    MPB

    Got an ongoing debacle with them/DPD at the moment. I ordered a Canon 22mm lens on 24th November, was due for delivery on 28th November, usual notification from DPD on 27th saying they’ll deliver tomorrow. It wasn’t delivered on the 28th, instead I got an email saying sorry it has been...

    Canon EOS M Series Cameras

    I think you remove the Q by de-allocating everything in the Q menu setup page and it then disappears

    Canon EOS M Series Cameras

    Well, the M5 I got from HDEW was returned, they are sending a properly new one next week when they have stock. The cheap M lenses I thought I got a bargain on from MPB we’re finally delivered today despite being ordered last week - the 22mm focus ring is dented and barely turns so that’s going...

    Canon EOS M Series Cameras

    Thanks folks, I was sure it should have had a cover so I’ll see what they say. I wouldn’t have checked the image count if it wasn’t for that getting my suspicions up.

    Canon EOS M Series Cameras

    Did anyone get a hotshoe cover on their M5? Mine doesn’t have one but every photo I’ve seen shows it with one. Also mine came with a 100+ image count ...

    Canon EOS M Series Cameras

    Just ordered a 22mm and 11-22mm from MPB for £218, has only just received new copies of each from Amazon that will shortly be on their way back. And to think I was a bit annoyed that hdew reduced their M5 price just after I bought one too, this more than makes up for that

    Canon EOS M Series Cameras

    Eglobal i understand ship from China so could take a while too, plus warranty situation as you mentioned. I quite fancy the Mitakon Zhongyi 35mm f/0.95 but tracking one down is not easy, nowhere seems to have any stock. I had the Samyang 50mm 1.2 on the M3 as well but found manual focus tricky...
