fwiw, i have found this lens to be remarkably free from flare. as a result the hood no longer gets used (or even put in the bag).

nah. i don't use lens caps either. ;)

35L or rok 35, keep which one..
I just got my brand new 35L.. kind of want to sell it as I find out I love the MF a lot..
and enjoy not to go into the somewhat common 'L' fever..

just sold my 35L, the rok 35 and 35L are too different. Matter of AF
i have rok 35, 85L 135L - good enough for shoots, weddings, events, etc.

Has anyone used this Rok together with the KatzEye?

I heard that someone can use this with any MF lens and be faster (and more accurate) than autofocus... True?

No, I have used a split prism from katz eye before. They are okay, but still hard to nail precise focus with them. Plus the split prism is only in the center and I prefer the ee-s screen for the 5d as you can compose your shot then focus, rather than focus and recompose. Overall, I'd say don't waste your money on the katz eye.

Love the look of the photos from this lens.
Can the f-stop be set from within the camera or is fstop manual as well?

F-stop is manual.

I have been using live view and it's great on focus provided that your subject is still, unlike mine! :)

My EG-S screen comes in next week and I hope this improves focus.

i don't think it's a matter of that particular screen per se.

one thing nearly everyone will agree on is that the oem screen is inadequate for apertures wider than about f/2.8, but once you get some kind of "faster" screen in, it's all up to the guy behind the camera.

the thing about MF is that it absolutely can be learned and a level of proficiency can be gained such that no AF system on the planet can compare.

it may take decades and tens of thousands of shots, but every one gets a little tiny bit easier.

Just ordered a de-clicked version from ebay. I'll be using it for photos and video on my 600D, the sharpness etc due to the crop factor should be superb. Very excited to get such a great quality lens. I've been reading reviews and it's being put up against 35L and Zeisses and not coming out too bad.

It's completely manual. The camera body is of no difference. The lens itself does not communicate to the camera.

so when you want to take picture you must find the focus ? no matter the body it was ?
