also, there is no way the camera would stand up like that with this lens attached - it's quite heavy. I had it supported with something and chopped it out in post.

I figured they were quite light as well as small so had to check, turns out it's heavier than the regular 70-300mm. However the weight would be closer to the body lowering the centre of gravity, it'd likely be easier to balance than the 85mm f/1.2 for example (no idea if that's possible either).

the weight and build of this lens is very much like the 24-70 2.8 MK1.

srika,

How does the quality of the DO Green Ring lenses compare to the quality of the L Red Ring lenses?

Thank you

Thank you

if you are talking about build and feel (physical) quality, this may as well have a "L" Red Ring on it - it feels very much like a 24-70 2.8 Mk1. I haven't used it enough to comment on its IQ.

I have the prehistoric super fat lead weight 1d Mark II with its 335gram battery, and even with the 85mm f/1.2 II, the thing tilts forward.... I guess the 85mm f/1.2 II is too heavy.

Looks like a Leica Thread Mount for a Canon Rangefinder camera.

Most think it's a rangefinder body mount- not SLR. Trying to find out if this will work with the DSLRs.

I don't think it will work because it is designed to be mounted closer to the film plane or image sensor.
