It's georgeous! Absolutely awesome camera! Mint condition except some dust in the viewfinder(a hair). Any tips on how to clean the viewfinder?

No, the viewfinder isn't accessible to us lowly consumers (unless you are adept at disassembling and reassembling such stuff. Canon service centers have done this though.

The one thing you can rry is detaching the focus screen and using a rocket blower upwards -- that could dislodge the thread but no guarantees.

Just so you know, the focus screen is designed to be removable/replaceable by the consumer.

It looks a bit weird to me not having the ring fully closed, but the lighting seems nice. I was contemplating something more like this:

haha, you're watermark on this one made me lol :lol:

did you add the vignette or is this how strong it is on the 135L? Actually the more I look at it the more I'm sure you added it. But how is the vignetting otherwise?


Yes I added the vignette in Lightroom. It does vignette a tad but thats because its full frame.

From the bokeh I am guessing that this was shot through a fence wide open? If so what aperture was used?

i wanted to ask everyone what is the most important things to look for in buying a 5dc? I have seen stuff mentioned in listings like "has been sent back to canon for the recall" etc.. and how many actuations is too many for you, if you were considering buying one? I'm really excited about this purchase, but really want to make the right one.

Also- which grip is te best? Is the bg-e4 (I believe that's right) the newest one for the classic?

thanks guys <3 hopefully i can play along soon!

I'm willing to bet it's f/2. I really don't know anyone who shoots the 135L on any other aperture unless strobes are involved.
