the ee-s high precision screen is necessary

This. And bracketing focus when necessary.

Magic lantern allows you to zoom in on live view, superb for nailing focus after you have composed the shot. You just move the zoom window to where you want focus to be, press the shutter half way (or button of your choice) and it zooms in.

+1 to using live view / Magic Lantern. I bought a loupe for 600D, works great and was like $20.

I doubt that an optical equivilent can get the focus as good as 10x digital zoom can.

In other news, for a car I'd normally stop down to say F8-F11 or whatever needed to make the whole thing look sharp, but quite like how this turned out at F1.4, focused on the headlights.

yes, imo they are worth it. keep in mind the oem screens are MUCH cheaper than the 3rd party versions... iirc the ee-s for the 5dc was like $30 when i grabbed it years ago.

af performance is unchanged, as the af phase detection happens "before" the focusing screen. metering however can be affected, but not in any way that cannot be compensated for. in fact on the 5dc there is a specific CF to select the ee-s screen...

Awesome, thanks Ride! I love your photos btw, I browsed your flicker for at least half an hour a few weeks ago :)

I actually bought my 6D over a 5DIII partially because of the ease of changing to an EG-S screen, I'll have to pick one up soon. This lens is definitely on my list, but I think I want to try a 135mm vintage prime first since my EXIF data for my zooms averages closer to there ;)

of course, not everyone has a camera with lv... not yet at least! ;)

even if i did, there are decided benefits to doing it with your viewfinder and eye (speed of focus, ability to quickly recompose, and battery life).

^Us old school 5Dc guys don't have the luxury ;)

Ee-S and (hopefully) a viewfinder magnifier.
