Ed I was so excited about the launch of your kit for the 85mm 1.2L that I watched the video where you stress that before ordering one must check that the rear element can be unscrewed!
You have already guessed! I cracked it! I am of course kicking myself but thats life! :-)
Do you think that i might be lucky enough to find an out of stock part somewhere in the world?
As you own both the old and the new, do you think that the rear element of the new one might be similar in optics and size to that of the old? Canon service would stock rear elements for the new one and if they do match or you could possibly make it work I would be truly grateful! Just quote your price!
I bought the lens when it was introduced and saved it through the years for such a possibility of using it on modern camera and it ends up like this! Sad!
