Just got my copy. It was raining outside so I thought I'd try a product shoot.
This is a 100% crop of the image, with a thumbnail of what the full size shot is.
I can't believe the sharpness, it's amazing!
It's not a creative shot or anything, just thought I'd post it as an example of what the lens can do. No sharpness applied, I just adjusted levels.

It's been a rather long time since I've posted anything new, just had a quick editorial shoot for a student group fashion magazine and got some killer shots!

Here's one!

Would it be possible to use an adapter instead of adding a confirmation chip? Like an EOS to EOS adapter, rather than an EOS to FD or EOS to Nikon, etc. Didn't know if anything like that exists.

I've read some people buy the Nikon mount of the lens and use the adapter because the Nikon lens has the confirm chip already.

A chipped Nikon-EOS adapter is what provides the electrical contact with the camera, not the Nikon-mount lens - the electrical contacts on the Nikon-mount lens go unused. There is no such thing as an EOS-EOS adapter because its simply an impossibility. If you want focus confirmation, your only two options are the buy a chip and mount it to the Canon-mount lens or buy the Nikon version as well as a chipped adapter.

My EG-S focus screen came in the other day. I did some test shots with it and my ability to focus through the VF improved dramatically. Worked well indoors/outdoors and at f/1.4!

I find that I am not second guessing my focus as often which makes me faster with the lens overall. Practice is still needed but I am headed in the right direction.

I would highly suggest this focus screen. Very simple to install (less than a minute) and worth every penny.

That makes sense, now that you explain it that way. The idea of gluing a chip is a bit intimidating but I guess I will give it a try!

when i want shoot model thats ok to manual focus, but when in situation
you want to shoot something moving you gonna loss the moment :(

That is not true. I shoot my kids all the time, with the Rok 35 and 85 wide open. I've shot sports wide open. I shoot events, including kids events. It's just a matter of practice. The right focus screen helps tremendously.

Got mine last night, love the lens but unfortunately noticed there is about 1mm of "play"/wiggle when mounted. Tested on my 5d2 and 5d, same issue. My 70-200 and 50mm 1.8 are tight and solid. Took the lens out and can see that the rear mount has play, so it's not the camera.

Has anyone else experience this? Any solution?

Bought it "used" here in the marketplace. Guy said he had only mounted it a few times and never noticed the issue.

My lens has the same 1mm of play when mounted and has been like that for over a year since purchased NEW. I think it may just be normal but doesn't effect the picture quality and never has fallen off of my camera body. I think a few other people may chime in with the same experience.

there are screws which hold the mount to the barrel. can you try to tighten them? be careful, don't strip the head OR the threads...

x2. I really can't stress enough of this when I give advice to others who are thinking of trying this lens out. :)
