Dear Valvebounce / Graham,

Sorry also for your personal situation. Posts like these must seem trivial when you're experiencing that.

Point taken about handing over the gear. I've only been doing this for 5mins, so guess I'm pretty naïve.


Hi folks,

From a keen amateur, this post has been very helpful. Have just taken AF off my shutter and am looking forward to giving it a whirl.

My only observation though: is it that big of a deal when handing your camera to someone else, to point to the BBF and say "here's what you press to focus"? I mean, if the person finds that instruction hard to deal with, then I wouldn't be giving them my camera at all.

For whatever help it is, I know for a fact that this gentleman shoots with a 1DX -

Good luck!

Thank you all,

Insanitybeard, it is indeed that exact movement. And so I guess my only other question, which would seem to have also been answered by your replies, is that this does not affect weather sealing? (just to confirm)

I would like to also point out that ... (as you can imagine), a lot of research was carried out prior to this purchase. And so I was surprised when I opened the box, to discover an included centre-pinch cap as opposed to the vilified edge-pinch - therefore perfect for those who prefer to keep their hoods attached.

Cheers folks!

Hi folks,

I just received my 70-200 2.8 IS II - super excited. Put the lens on the camera (7D) and found that there is 'give' in the mounting.

To compare, my other lens, a 24-105 f4 - does not do this.

Has anyone had this?
Is there a solution?
Should I be worried?

Thanks for any assistance!

Hi there,

As a keen amateur, I have just taken the plunge and ordered a 70-200 f2.8 - I am beside myself with excitement! I've had a play with the 70-200 f4 and loved the versatility, so I am really looking forward to the wider aperture. If focal length is a concern, an extender will help you out.

You would not regret it and as long as you treat it nice, it will hold a great deal of its value for potential resale, should you decide to upgrade to a longer lens.

Good luck!
