Sweet. Think I'll order one of these in 77mm

I have one and it works pretty well, but be careful not to tighten it too much. Had a legitimate scare that I got it stuck.

That happened to me once, also, with a Sunpak cheapo 58mm. Had to use a pair of channel locks to get it off.

I got it off using one of those silicon jar openers to get a good grip on it.

LOL. I didn't have one of those handy. I always have tools, though.

Lol that happened to me as well with my b/w polariser, I was properly crapping myself as they are not cheap and I had dropped and broken one a few weeks earlier !!!! Now I always keep a fat elastic band in the bag just incase.

Does anyone know how lens calibration works ? My Sigma seems to be front focusing just a tiny hair but I didn't realize it til I took it out to the car meet yesterday. I tried calibrating it myself but I just have bad eyes and can't tell. I'm going to drop it off at my camera store tomorrow morning but just wanted to know what all goes into it. If my Sigma gets calibrated to my 5D3, does it not work the same as it would on a 60D and my other camera bodies? On every other camera body I own, it's right on the spot, just a bit off on my 5D3. I never realized how heavy my cameras were til yesterdays car meet...it's been that long I haven't used any of my toys. It feels good to get up and go out again although my body says it's in a ton of pain. LOL

I would get a calibration target and do an MFA yourself, or else yes it might make it out of calibration to your others like the 60D. The 5D is your only full frame though right? The deeper DOF on the crops gives you a little more room for small calibration errors and there is a possiblity that you wouldn't notice any real effect on your other bodies if you had it calibrated to the 5D.

So you're saying I should just MFA instead on the 5D so I don't risk it on the rest of my camera bodies? Yes my 5D3 is my main FF and that's what I noticed it on doing the front focusing. I can try again to do it myself but everytime I try I feel like it did nothing or I did it wrong. I even bought FoCal and TeamSpeed's chart but I would feel better if someone who knew what they were doing would fix it for me. I can't trust my eyes on this because apparently I let others use my equipment and they told me that my viewfinder was also wonky and after they adjusted it it was much better for me as well. My eye disease is not helping me any and its frustrating to me because I'm crazy OCD and still a pixel peeper at heart. LOL

Well....you can always post the chart pics here at high crops and we can help :)

For the Viewfinder Dioper adjustment, you are supposed to adjust it until the focus boxes are sharp, do not try to get the image in the viewfinder sharp, just the viewfinder "display" elements. If you wear contacts it should be pretty close. Sometimes the wheel gets bumped in a bag and they get all wonky.

So how do I do the test in poor lighting? I only come home at nights and have that ugly yellow lighting in my house. I know the Sigma dock has like 4 different distances, do I need to test them all ? This crap makes me angry but currently at work so I'm already frustrated. xD
