1d X focusing screen
« on: December 02, 2012, 01:48:16 PM »
Hi guys!

I know the EC-S focusing screen isn't firmware supported for the 1d X, however, I have tried changing the setting away from the standard screen, and the only lens that metered different was the 135 f2 L, and I've sold that.

Does this mean that I can use the EC-S with the 24 L, 35 L, 50 L and 85 L and NOT have a metering issue? Or does it all change when actually replacing the screen rather than just setting the camera to think it's there?

I would REALLY like to use the EC-S screen, but if the metering is off, no point in spending money on it.

Thanks!
1dx, 17-40 L, 24-70 L II, 85 L II, 200 f2.0 L

I used the Ec-S screen - so far, did not noticed any AE issues (at least for me)

however - I did not do any testing - I rarely do those things - I used it - no issues so far.

although - I could not tell any real difference with Ec-S and the Ec-CV and decided to put the CV back on and the Ec-S back to my 1D Mark IIN.
