EOS Bodies - For Stills / 6D focus screen compatibility
« on: April 24, 2013, 11:27:29 AM »
I just bought a 6D and I was looking for a focus screen to help with manual focus. I am getting mixed information about the compatibility; some say that any focus screen that work for the 5D MkII will work and other say that none will. Can anybody help me? If it can help, I am looking for a split-sreen focus screen like this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/180-horizontal-Split-Image-Focus-Focusing-Screen-For-Canon-EOS-5D2-5D-Mark-II?item=271183492503&cmd=ViewItem&_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D4%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D7174353032350245585.
Thank you very much!  :)

Third Party Manufacturers / Focus confirmation on Samyang lens?
« on: March 21, 2013, 07:21:09 PM »
I own both Samyang 14mm f/2.8 and 35mm f/1.4 and really love these lens! However, I got to say that I do miss having the focus confirmation. While looking for a way to enable it on these lens, I saw that a few people literally glued AF-confirm chips to the very lens. Even though it seems to work well, I got to say that I don't like that much the idea of gluing things to the lens. Moreover, I am not a very manual guy, so I don't really trust myself with superglue near my glass!  :o
Does anyone knows of another way of being able to use focus confirmation with manual focus lens? If not, have anybody already glued a chip to a lens? Is it safe? Does it really work?
Thanks a lot for the help!
