Manual focus with SL2 vs SL2-S


Recommended Posts

Have heard that manual focusing M lenses is easer on the SL2-S partly due to low-light advantage but also sharper magnified view on the SL2-S. Wondered if the new firmware upgrade changed this. Anyone have comparative experience?

In normal everyday light, with the newest firmwares, the SL2 and SL2-S are the same.  In really low light, if the low light enhancement is on, the focus peaking on the SL2-S turns off, so there isn’t an advantage in manual focus, except you can zoom in and focus until the details are sharp.  Only good for stills, landscapes, in low light (advantage).

Thanks, perfect. Jono Slack mentioned a “susurration” in magnified view on the SL2 that he did NOT find on the SL2-S when first tested. Sounds like the firmware update may have improved that.
