Thank you!
Bought it after your and some other recommendations and have taken in 13 months more than 5000 pictures with it. wAnd that is me, who doesn't shoot much wide angle usually. It has be come a train companion, a flower lens mushrooms to architecture, you name it. Agree to Jacques, it needs definitely a say 55-105 companion!
I had the 135 art for a while, compared to this one it is clumsy to use, too bulky and limited. So this 24-35 is usually accompanied by my 150 f/2.8 or the 85 1.4 (the old one)

Yes, thank you. I have looked into that but I think that it is too new to be on the rental lists. I will wait a few weeks.

However. Until I know that this lens does not suffer from an IR 'hotspot' I will wait for futher reports.
I do not want to invest in it and risk it as it will only be used for IR.



Hi altitude. I think you can try renting it s ok you can make a decision before committing yourself to it by a purchase.

Quote:Video recording can continue for as long as the battery holds out


Unlike earlier models, the OM-1 can be powered via the USB-C port, while the internal battery is charging. So with a big external battery, it should be possible to do video indefinitely. The external power source can run it while charging the internal battery, which can run it while the external power source itself is recharging from the mains or a vehicle.

Is someone making a mistake? A 20D is an old 8MP Canon body. Donīt you mean 20MP?

We don't have a reservoir of camera bodies, just imagine the cost of continually replacing them as upgrades become available. The most suitable current body is supplied along with the lens for review purposes. Actually, there are plenty of high quality mirrorless and DSLR bodies around that are 20MP or thereabouts. Excellent results are absolutely possible.

"coupling it up with the 20.1MP Canon R6"

What's the point were all your 20D bodies tied up?
