I had to do an AFMA of +8 with my 5d MkIII. Not a big deal, and truly only off by a little bit. The advantages of this lens far outweigh the minor inconvenience of dialing it in. It is my go-to prime lens.

Why do you think this was addressed earlier than the 5d mark III, despite the 5d being released "long" before the 1dx?
The simple answer would be: The 1dx costs more. "Professionals" demand it. etc.
But I don't think there are too many amateurs running around out there with $3000 bodies.
I was relatively unconcerned with the large amount of discontent with the 5d mark iii preformance, personally feeling that the camera fit its role.
I am, however; utterly pissed that Canon chose to overlook the fact that there are thousands of 5d mk3 users out there that have demanded, more or less, that the AF in AI Servo be changed through a simple firmware update, and instead, offer it to the 1dx that has been out for a fraction of the time.
I love Canon, but this really irks me, maybe unjustifiably, but irks me none the less, and where better to rant than cr?
I'm sure canon will get around to the 5d3 eventually. Hopefully.
Or not. Force us to upgrade to the 1dx. Make more money. You know, canon's usual. Or should I say, a sane company's usual.
Thank you AGAIN, Se7en.
I am doing some research on Bulb Ramping in ML. Let me try it and post a video here.
There are so many things to learn in just one particular type on photography!
Edit: I've tried with ML Bulb Ramping but failed.
The picture will always be over expose (ie white image).
Not sure what I am doing wrong but here's what i tried.
1) Take a picture that i think it's right (ie aperture, shutter speed, manual focus and WB)
2) Turn on the Intervalometer and Bulb ramping
3) ML does calibration (the S curve)
4) It lets me choose the tone range from the picture i took (here's the problem)
- I tried 50th percentile and the camera will start taking pictures but it will be over expose (white image)
- I tried other percentile and it will still take over expose photos
- It would take 3-4 pictures before it returns to normal/acceptable pictures
Thank you for the tips Se7en. It definitely sounds a lot harder than i thought!
Do you think it's alright to change the setting during the photos? Let's say it's getting darker, can i put the ISO higher, slower shutter speed, and change the WB?
I am thinking it may work IF i change the setting gradually.
Axilrod: I am quite comfortable with using time lapse in Magic Lantern now though I've only tried it twice. lol
Can someone please explain what's magic lantern's bulb ramping?
so the focus is incorrect even thou it successfully focused.
