Laowa update - they have sent me a pre-paid return label for international tracked and insured postage to send the lens back to china. I asked for a refund and they said they could only send a replacement. I have now asked if a canon mount could be sent instead and await their response. Generally they have responded quickly to all emails. Any delays have been due to time difference.

I actually now think it's the built in mount that is out of tolerance leading to the inability to reach infinity. Previously I had a dumb adaptor on my Samyang 14 and it couldn't hit infinity, I swapped the adaptor and it cured it. That's why I have asked for a canon mount as I can then at least try different adaptors if there is an issue with the replacement. They may just send me a Sony mount though

Edit - they have agreed to send me a canon mount instead. I feel less nervous about that now

Just like i said, they are willing to help. They need to, a small lens manufacturer cannot afford to treat its clients with bad service.

I hope the replacement works without any troubles!

One from back in July in Vancouver...I want to remember it was with the Big Stopper, and horribly underexposed...3 stops or so...that is what I had to pull it up by in post anyway. PUlling it up that much the colors of the rocks didn't really respond well, I was leanign towards black and white for this comp when I shot it anyway, so I went in that direction with it.

tried it that way too...I don't think I was explaining it right...when I put the Expodisc on...it clearly shows as a warmer color in the room...then when I got into the "SET" function in Custom WB, as soon as I do that...the color in the viewfinder changes to the same blueish white...no matter what the light in the room looks like...it always goes back to that color...go back to normal shooting and its warm again...no matter what the room, the light...it always tells me that 2900 is the WB...we know that can't be right.

2900 doesn't sound too far off if you're trying to bring 5500-6000kish tungsten lights to 4500k, but it might by over-correcting. The problem is that when it comes to correcting tungsten lights, a difference of 250K can be the difference between blue and white.

Which version of the expodisk are you using? I got the portrait version which is supposed to be a bit warmer and its worked out well.

I got the 2.0, it has little filters to add on for portrait work...gonna test it out more today outside...

Question.....

My brightness in the camera both in LCD and Viewfinder is Zero. Display in LCD or EVF are well expose. When importing to LR or C1, at first the thumbnails are well expose, then it will go like 2 stops under.

How is this happening? I checked my preferences the auto tone are off.

This might be refresher question. Might had been discuss before already. but let's talk about again.

I find that if I go by what the viewfinder and LCD show...I get the same result as you...I find if I follow the exposure meter I get better results...but the image on the viewfinder or LCD will look worse...I need to darken the viewfinder and LCD to cope with it...just keep forgetting to do that.

Yeah I've been impressed with it so far. i.e. here's a screen shot out of PS. the 'as shot' WB is on point. I used a gelled speedlight and the expodisk made it easier to figure out what kind of gel to use to match the tungsten lights and avoid color casts. You can seen the bounce flash in the ceiling of the reflection in the mirrorl.

It made life much easier when I had to process a bunch of reception photos:

Transfers the weight of the system off the top of the stand... Without this, I would have looked for the 360 instead, glad I found it.
