Just got my 5D Mark II 2 days ago. I also did an EF conversion on my 10-22mm Lens. I don’t have my 40D any more and thought it would be sad to sell this lens. More pics to come.

Here is a crappy how to remove the EF and EF-S baffles (this is at your own risk!) I saw it somewhere and copied it for later use.

1. You will need a small Phillips screwdriver screw driver

2. There’s a raised screw on the side of the metal lens mount about 15 mm to the left of the electrical contacts that retains the baffle.
Undo it. (Don’t undo the two inset screws that retain the electrical contacts.)

3. Remove the four screws on the rim of the lens mount that hold the lens mount to the lens body. (don‘t hold the lens by just its barrel once you’ve removed these four screws)

4. Gently lift one side of the lens mount upwards at the point furthest from the electrical contacts, enough to be able to get your fingers underneath. (Note: the lens mount won't move much near the electrical contact owing to connecting wires – so don't try pulling the lens mount off.)

5. Push the baffle out of the lens mount from underneath whilst holding the lens mount firmly, taking care not to pull out the wires (note: the wires are firmly attached, so this would take some force). The baffle’s held in (not very firmly) by four plastic clips, and will ping out when pushed from behind.

6. Reassemble. (Note: if you’re replacing the baffle with an EF one, this can be added after reassembling the lens).

Op, you should just get the 17-40 instead or even better 16-35:)! I think the 10-22 will be like super super wide on ff?

Does the shutter fire correctly? I was under the impression that this was not physically possible due to the rear element of the lens sitting too far into the camera body and thus interfere with the operation of the shutter mechanism. You're brave - let us know how it works.

I'm pretty sure he still can't use it at 10mm. All he did was remove the baffle that prevents the lens from being mounted, but the reason that baffle is there is because the rear element of the lens sticks too far out from the mount and can be hit by the mirror when placed at 10mm. On my 1D, I can set the lens as far down as 11-12mm before I have a problem with the mirror hitting the rear element. With the 5D's larger mirror, I suspect you'll need to be around 13-14mm to clear it.

That's my understanding too.
It should be usable from 13mm up, but not wider..


What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

I do not see why you wouldn't turn that 10-22 into 5 or 6 hundy and just buy a nice 16-35? But I admit, I want to see some photos.


If you must know...

The 28-135 is an EF lens... why did you do this? Sorry if I misunderstood
