  1. Canon EOS M5

    Thanks Al! The M6 arrives next week so will try and get familiar with it as quickly as possible, and get a bit of use out of it before we go away. Then decide which way i want to go, wider or longer...

    Seems you've had both the 11-22 and 22mm, which do you prefer? Do you still use both of them?
  3. Canon EOS M5

    Been doing a fair bit of reading over the last few hours and it seems the 22mm prime is a great choice (maybe better than the 11-22mm) for travel. The 18-150mm seems to review on par with the 15-45 + 55-200 combo, but saves you having to change lenses. The 18-150 is also the same size as the 55-200, so no need to carry around excess baggage. I'm thinking these two could be the combo i'm after for versatility, compactness and not having to change lenses.
  4. Canon EOS M5

    Finally bought an M6 with 15-45mm kit lens in preparation for a holiday at the end of the year. I bought this as it's small and easy to use for travel. Now looking at a suitable lens to make sure i'm not left wanting while away. I've three options when it comes to lenses: Canon EF-M 55-200mm... if this is recommended, i should have bought it in the kit I don't like the idea of having to change lenses "on the fly" though. Canon EF-M 18-150mm... this seems like a great jack of all trades and i'm heavily leaning towards this, albeit i think it's a bit expensive for a plastic body lens. Tamron EOS-M 18-200m... this is an interesting one, slightly heavier than the above lens but appears to have much better build quality, equivilent picture quality, and a bit of extra range. Happy to hear if anyone has comments or feedback on any of the above lenses, or other options? Don't want something too large as the primary reason for this camera is portability (yet good picture quality).
  5. I was just thinking about my car system and it has room for a center channel... I only have two of these atm... Maybe?

    Australia made SUV's... Ford made the Territory based off a boat. In their hay day they were only selling ~18k/year.

    No adjustment beyond bass / treble. Unfortunately this HK system is not logic 7, there is no processing for the center channel, just a summed signal going to it.

    At low volume the HK Audio is pretty meh. No authority in the bass and it sounds tinny and harsh. When you turn it up, the bass starts to come through, as does the midrange. It's acceptable at this level but not Hi-Fi by any means. There's also no semblance of a soundstage. I've read that this is due to the center channel getting a summed L/R signal hence blurring the stage. At some point I will disable this and see how the audio is improved. Having said that, for phone calls, voice comes through incredibly clear.

    I got an umbrella and a full tank of petrol. I did read some people received track day invites in the mail up to a year after purchase. Fingers crossed, it sounds like awesome fun.
  11. BMW M135i

    It was definitely an enjoyable experience buying the car. They were very courteous and the service was great. Also got an umbrella to keep the rain off me during this typical Melbourne weather. Pity it's not big enough to cover the car too.

    And one with the cover off.

    For the LCI2 60k + ~800 TAC / Registration + ~3500 dealer delivery + 10% GST + LCT Thankfully they are doing them for $65k drive away on their current special, keeps it under LCT... until you add heated seats / lumbar support that they removed as standard. I don't have the cost breakdown for my car handy but it totaled 79k rrp. 65k LCI model + ~2k sunroof + ~800 TAC / Registration + ~3500 dealer delivery + 10% GST + LCT
