Just as I was contemplating selling my (almost new) Canon EOS M6 mirrorless camera (because I found some other equipment I'd like to try out, haha), I saw THIS image on the Canon EOS M body Facebook group! So bad ass!
This setup belongs to one of the group moderators, a guy named Januar Kurniawan in Jakarta Indonesia. It looks SO DAMN COOL to have an old school Canon FD mount lens on a silver EOS M6! First of all, one of the reasons I bought the silver version in the first place is because I loved the old school vintage look of the body... but adding the older manual focus FD lens makes it look EVEN COOLER.
However, let's put looks aside for a minute - what about the performance of this lens?
This manual focus FD lens will be PERFECT for people looking to get smooth, cinematic looking rack focus shots with the EOS M camera. Ideally, you'd have the EOS M6 mounted to a tripod or other stabilizer, then you could just focus your attention on pulling focus on the lens and also staring at your rear screen to check focus.
I know that Canon's current EF-M lens lineup has STM options, meaning it's made for video (and therefore, perfect for touch-focusing), but I dunno. I think that an older manual lens will still create a cool, different look. I just NEED to try this out.
Now I just need to research the EF-M-to-FD mount adapters on the market!
