I have one question regarding this manual lens. When you stop down the aperture, does the viewfinder go dark?
As this lens has no electrical contact with camera, I think the viewfinder should go dark at f/5.6 or more.
In that case, is it difficult to focus on the subject?

No, it doesn't go dark. Well it gets a little darker as you stop down, but remember this starts out at f/2.8 and if you stop it down to f/5.6 it won't be any darker than your 70-300mm lens is when zoomed out to 300mm.

Even at f/11 or f/16 you can still use the viewfinder.

It gets darker, obviously. How dark depends on the available light. Focusing stopped down will be next to impossible because of the immense depth of field. For best results you'll want to focus wide open in live view with 10x magnification and then stop the lens down. Even with a precision focusing screen it's very hard to determine accurate focus through the viewfinder.

Thank You. That is re-assuring :)

So, this lens poses some unique challenges. Thanks. I hope to get some good results with this one. Esp. night photography shots.

I agree that #3 is less overdone and still not much done properly, if you convert all the shots to B&W it will help to reduce that extreme HDR effect maybe

I got very excited there until the penny dropped that I would also need new filters. Got too much invested in Lee to buy another set of filters that are wider (161 x 139 x 3 mm format). Good news though that there is actually something available as its a commonly asked for feature with this lens.

What are you looking to do with this? ND filters?
