Canon General / Carl Zeiss 21mm F2.8 Canon Mount
« on: October 24, 2011, 11:24:53 AM »
Not really a Canon lens...but it has a Canon mount! I've been going back and forth on my next lens purchase and I cannot decide.

I am shooting with a 5Dmkii and the only lens in my current lineup is the 70-200mm is usm ii and Zeiss 50mm 1.4. I've been looking for a nice wideangle landscape lens.

Everything I've read has been pretty tremendous about the zeiss 21mm.

I'm curious if anyone on this board has had any personal experience with it? recommend it? other suggestions?


Lenses / Lens Adapter's for Canon Bodies
« on: May 26, 2011, 09:58:25 AM »
Hello everyone!

I currently own a canon 5dmk2 and I have some Nikon lenses that I'm looking to use on my camera ( 85 1.4 , 135 2.0 w/ defocus )

I had Fotodiox lens mount adapter to use nikon glass on a canon body, however I noticed that I got some severe vignetting when mounted and my viewfinded became increasingly darker the more I adjusted my Fstop.

Now this adapter was 80.00 and i see some other ones out there for 200.00+ (Novoflex) and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with any of these - or recommendations.

I'm wondering if these side affects were because of my adapter or it's just something that comes with the territory.
