Of course, the other benefit of putting a filter on the front of your lens is it offers some protection against damaging the lens. Lenses may be expensive, filters not so.

Ginger Chung says:

I just bought the Canon SL2. Looking for an extra lens.

Humberto Nuñez says:

Love your videos! I think I’m gonna finally get the m50.

tlc says:

Hi, is Canon EF-M 22mm f2 good for shooting milkyway?

Roger Underhill says:

I chose the 18-150 kit lens and added the 11-22 to cover all bases on the M6. Then I got the adapter to give faster options.

NYN2K says:

The Canon eos r is out & rp is coming soon what alternative lens are there besides canon lens for the rf mount? Thanks.

renz caballero says:

Hello i recently purchase a canon m50 im wondering which is better or value for the money. The efm 22mm or the new 32 mm 1.4? I mostly do portrait photograpy or street photography.

Jenya Lab says:

My favourite is ef 40mm, f2.8 through the adapter.
I had 22 mm, but I sold it. 40 is much better for portraits.
And for street, nature fotography better to use 15-45, so 22 is useless.
Also I bought an adapter to my Minolta Rokkor 100 2.5.
Today had a test a I was really appreciate that this camera is showing my in different colours where the focus is.
It is cerry cool.

Chari Wilder says:

Really appreciate your vid. I’m a beginner vlogger and am using my iPhone and want to move up a notch. Been thinking of getting an M50.

Tyler 2K says:

What’s the best for unboxing videos?? With the camera on a tripod?

Serg Lu says:

Based on the adapter description it doesn’t alter focal length of the lens when you put regular EF lens to ef-m mount. Please, correct me if I’m wrong?

I am torn between the M5 and M50. To me the M5 looks much better quality and I like the extra dials on the top. Should I stick with getting the M5 or go with the m50 and if so why

Hey, I have an Canon eosm100. I have a 55-200 lens and a 15-45 lens. But my trouble is with the small lens I can’t zoom in as far as I want as for photographing birds as an example. And with the big lens I can’t make photos of things close to me so I’m constantly switching lenses, what is a better option as a lens to use? Thanks a bunch for the video I find lenses very complicated because there is so much out there
