Hi all - I've picked up this lens and I'm looking forward to using it a lot more, especially this spring/summer/fall for hiking and backpacking.

I have put it on my 6D a couple times, but I'm struggling with manual focusing because it just seems like with this wide of an angle, on FF and with it's field of view, I struggle to figure out what's exactly in focus. Sometimes even in LV.

So I determined I needed to do some reading and testing to learn how to focus this thing more reliably. I searched this thread and found the following post (Thanks Invertalon) - I wanted to quote it and make it visible again in case anyone else is having the same trouble. I've had to read it a few times, and it makes sense. I hope I can put it to good practice when I finally get to test the lens a little more.

I just use hyperfocal with mine, I never focus my lens generally.

The hyperfocal distance points are the same with ANY lens, but related to the camera body, aperture and focal length. Check out DOF master for these values:

http://www.dofmaster.c​om/dofjs.html (external link)

For example, on a 5D2 at 14mm at f/2.8 - If you focus at the hyperfocal distance of 7.62ft (let's say 8ft), you will be in focus from 3.9ft to infinity.

Stop the lens down to f/4, the hyperfocal distance is now at 5.4ft... So if you focus the lens at 5.4ft, your DOF is now from 3.22ft to infinity.

@ f/5.6, the hyperfocal is 3.84' - DOF from 2.58' to infinity.

@ f/8, hyperfocal at 2.73' - DOF from 2' to infinity.

@f/11, hyperfocal at 1.94 - DOF from 1.54' to infinity.

And so on...

I generally use f/8 for most of my stuff, so I focused on a point 3' away from me wide open, found the sharpest point (which was right around 1m mark on my focus scale). So anytime I shoot at f/8, I just set to 1m and everything is in focus.

Very easy! Just learn where your points are on your focus scale.
