Here's a few examples of long time exposures with the B+W .

 The last photo has the color cast intact , it's not terrible .
If you do decide to go with the screw on filter, don't forget to purchase some stop-down rings so you can use it on other lenses !

 I've been using it on a 17-40 L and 24-105 L with no problem.  (and can actually focus using live view ).  No issues with  vignetting on this lens , I'm pretty pleased with the B+W black glass .

 I'm slightly confused, maybe someone can clear this f8 focusing thing up for me.
When I use my Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM with a 2X converter my widest usable aperture is effectively f13 and the auto focusing works fine.

 Am I missing something ?

 On the bright side, because of this thread I was prompted to compare prices on a purchase of a 70-200 2.8 L II I made on 3/17 .
 Thanks to B&H 's policies I just got a $30.00 kickback.
The customer service as always to my experience at B&H was great. The guy gave me a choice of a refund or store credit, I chose the later as I know I'll be a return customer many times in the future .

 That's kind of pricey , but on the bright side I'm sure they will knock off a few bucks if you get it as a kit lens with the new 7D mkII .  :P

Great...I just bought the is in the mail, and they come out with a VF-4???


 Same here, but I'm happy with it none the less .

 The Carryspeed viewfinder I mentioned in an earlier post came today, I have to admit I'm pretty impressed .  It's a straightforward design and I had it on the camera in moments with no need for reading the directions. ( A preview of the video before it arrived was very helpful .) 
 This viewfinder does work with a battery grip although you'll have to make one tweak .
Using a phillips screwdriver to pull one screw and flipping the vertical adjustment bars gives it enough reach to fit quite nicely with the grip.

 The view is sharp and I must admit thanks to the adjustable diopter I no longer have to fish around my pockets looking for reading glasses to see live view.   
 By the way, kudos to the guy who started this thread , if I hadn't read this I wouldn't have researched looking for a deal nor found this little gem of an item .

 I ordered mine from the manufacturer direct , cost $9.00 more but free shipping.
Still waiting.

 I literally talked myself into buying one as I was posting the links.
Just finished the online purchase moments ago.   

 A follow up to my previous post.

Small | Large

 I kind of like this, it looks very sturdy. No adhesives , will fit multiple camera models and looks like you can adjust it to fit a 5D mkIII with or without a battery grip.
Best part it's only $130 bucks !
 I think I'm going to get one.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk III Firmware, any news?

 Wouldn't it be something if after updating to the next firmware the Magic Lantern logo popped up on the screen .
 There'd be some real upgrades , that's for sure.
