Is there any such list, or can people post their experiences? It's really easy to find out which canon lenses are good or bad for IR, but not the third party lenses. Thanks in advance.

Not sure it this helps you or not. Nikon lenses can be used with an adapter on Canon bodies and this reviewer gives IR results for each lens.

Try searching this forum archives...I recall a thread from some time ago that listed Canon and some third-party lenses that worked/didn't work with an IR-converted body.

Believe me; I searched. I never ask a question without researching first. I've been here for quite some time; I'm not a slacker. Anyway, I've seen lots of lists. At most, they'll list 1 or 2 sigma or tamron lenses. I'm looking for something extensive. Thanks though.

Dave

Edit: you know what, I take that back. There is one list that shows more 3rd party lenses, but it doesn't show the ones I was looking for so that's why I didn't notice them so much before.

Not really interested in Nikon. Thanks though. I appreciate it.

Oh, I know you weren't implying that. I just didn't want anyone thinking it ;)

I did see that link, thanks though.

Hey, thanks for that. I think that's about all the lenses listed I've seen on the net combined in one list.

I can add a couple to this:

Canon 70-300mm IS (NON DO) has no hot spot

Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 gives a bad hotspot

And contrary to what I've seen posted everywhere, the Sigma 105mm f2.8 macro lens does have a hotspot.

Thanks again,
Dave
