Canon EOS M6 Mark II Review (delivers great-looking photos, ePHOTOzine)

Canon EOS M6 Mark II Review

Canon EOS M6 Mark II review by the folks at ePHOTOzine. The Canon EOS M6 Mark II was announced in August 2019.

The review criticises the fact that there are allegedly only three premium lenses for the EOS M system: the 32mm f/1.4 STM, 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM, and 22mm f/2 STM. All native EF-M lenses made by Canon, and with a metal mount, which seems to be a discerning factor for the reviewer.

It would be more correct to state there are only “three premium lenses made by Canon“, and still I think using the limited number of Canon-made EF-M lenses is objectionable as a criticism against the EOS M6 Mark II. There are many third party manufacturer making EF-M lenses, with some nice and fast primes among them. Or does someone doubt the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens is a premium lens? Depending by your needs you might prefer the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN. Both have a metal mount, btw. You can also use the very good EF/EF-S to EF-M adapter and not worry about autofocus since you have Dual Pixel AF on board. So, I guess in ePHOTOzine’s review there is a bit of good old EOS M bashing with the argument of the lens ecosystem. It’s true that Canon did not build a large EF-M lenses lineup (so far) but it’s also true that it doesn’t really matter that much.

From the Canon EOS M6 Mark II review conclusion:

The Canon EOS M6 Mark II could be a fantastic camera, in fact, it is, but without the right lens or lenses, it’s severely limited. It’s like a Ferrari stuck in traffic, or on a road with a 30mph speed limit until it gets to the Autobahn. Yes, the Canon EOS M6 Mark II is a great camera, but the first thing you must do is get a better lens, to get the most out of it, and does the currently limited range of Canon EF-M lenses meet or match your requirements?

Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS Review (fantastic image quality, Photography Blog)

Canon RF 15-35mm F/2.8L IS Review

Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS review by Photography Blog.

The Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS is one of the “holy trinity” lenses for the EOS R system. A lens that’s not for everyone’s budget.

From the conclusion of the Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS review:

This lens is lovely and sharp, while also being very good at keeping distortion to a minimum. W’ve been using it with a Canon EOS RP, which arguably is not the best camera to use it with. But even the 30 megapixel Canon EOS R probably wouldn’t even do it justice – perhaps Canon will be announcing something with an ultra-high resolution sensor targeted more squarely at professional users than the existing line-up some time soon.

[…] Image quality from this lens is fantastic and if you’re somebody who has a need for an ultra-wide-angle lens for the Canon full-frame mirrorless system, it’s hard to deny just how excellent it is.

Canon EOS M200 Review (admirably beginner friendly, Photography Blog)

Canon EOS M200 Review

Here is a new Canon EOS M200 review.

Photography Blog reviewed the Canon EOS M200, the company’s latest APS-C mirrorless camera. A camera clearly aimed at beginners or people stepping up from smartphone photography.

From their conclusion:

What the EOS M200 has going for it is its intuitiveness. We found it to be one of the easiest interchangeable lens cameras (one of the major benefits over and above use of a smartphone for your photography) to get to grips with from scratch.

For those who want to take their photography slightly more seriously than their smartphone allows, but without investing heavily to do so, the Canon EOS M200 provides a decent point of entry.

As a result this isn’t the most impressive, interesting or innovative Canon camera ever – and some may bemoan the fact that it omits an eye-level viewfinder or even the ability to add one as an optional extra – but the EOS M200 nevertheless fulfills the beginner friendly purpose for which it has been created admirably.
