Pros: This thing takes better photos than my 50D and is much more quiet. I bought this specifically because it did not have a mirror. Perfect for taking more inconspicuous photos.
I laugh as the camera is smaller than an EF 50mm 1.8 and it's even more hilarious looking with an EF 70-300 attached with the adapter.
Cons: No viewfinder, but it doesn't have a mirror. Slow Auto focus, has more difficulty with EF and EF-S lenses than the M mount included with the camera.
You have to kind of fight with it if you want to AF + MF at the same time.
Need a really fast SD card to get acceptable write times.
There's no 60p recording or 4:2:2 color sampling, but what do expect for 300 dollars?
Other Thoughts: There's no warranty from Canon, but do you really need one? I have NEVER had a piece of Canon equipment to fail on me, except for an EF-S lens that I dropped on concrete; it's aperture finally gave up 5 years after dropping it. I'm expecting to get at least 300,000 clicks out of this since it's shutter and mirror-less.
If you're any kind of serious about SLR photography you MUST have this body with the adapter. I will never carry just one camera anymore.
You just can't beat an extra "SLR" body for ~450 bucks.
This review is from: Intel BOXDX79SR LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: LGA 2011.... That's about it.
Cons: In less than a year I've gone through 3 boards. RAID controllers burn out like crazy rendering the entire thing USELESS. No boot to BIOS just some annoying beeps and a red diag light.
Oh and the easy overclock feature doesn't work. NOTHING will boot with the default timings.
Research for timing your RAM will be required or be prepared for A LOT of experimentation.
Other Thoughts: Biggest piece of manure I've bought from Newegg.
If your seriously only going to plug in ONE as in a single (1) drive this should work for you. But the second you decide to expand your storage or pop in a DVD drive this sucker is going to go up in smoke within 6 months....
Or if you don't mind sending dead boards back to intel at 3-6 month intervals this is right up your alley!
