Hey, if it works on lenses, would it work on me?

Red headbands are easy to come by, and I'd love to be an "L" class photographer.

That's better than the red rubber band I've seen people use.

I thought it funny. They even used the 24-105 mug in the last couple of segments so as not to mess up an actual lens. While I do like the quality of an L lens, I am also a realist and know that the "Red Ring" is just marketing.

Yes, yes it would work. However, this will not make you an L class photographer, but it'll eliminate the vignetting on your eyes and increase sharpness. Chromatic abberation is also reduced and your background blur will look better.

However, it will do nothing for front or back focussing issues (meaning you still need glasses). Canon Customer Service might solve that problem for you.

I suppose for the focussing issues, you better slap an "A" badge on your forehead noting you're a Sigma Art lens. Then you will be able to use the USB dock!

I should do this on my Sigma lenses. That should really confuse people (well photographers who are gearheads anyway).

Or you could just buy a cheap Vivitar lens that comes with a red ring.

Unfortunately, those red rings don't seem to do their magic on Vivitar lenses. The Vivitar Series 1 13mm f/2.8 ($420) has a very nice red ring, but it still doesn't compare well with the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM ($2159).

I guess it's true: you just can't shine sh#t!

My favourite part was the selective colour to highlight the red ring. :D

I bought my sigma 35 from a fellow that put a red ring tape on it. I wanted to take it off, but I think it improves overall image quality
