Hello everyone!
This is the first time I used my new 5D with a glidecam.

Lenses in use:
Canon 70-200mm F4
Canon 50mm F1.2
Samyang 14mm F2.8

Love the 5D Mk III ;D

Nice. Congrats on your 5D3 purchase :)

Appreciate if you could answer couple of my questions.

did you use Glidecam with vest support or was it just 4000 Pro? some of the shots are really smooth.

what is your take on Samyang/Rokinon 14mm (my usage will be 70% video and 30% photo).

Very nice! I was worried you would slip!

The rok 14 is nice and light for steadicam use. And a great field of view that worked really well on those rock faces.  The color and contrast out of it is not instantly world class but it's terrific to have in the bag. Amazing sharpness certainly.

thanks peederj.
I don't expect it to be as good as canon's. Might pick up the rokinon to get me going.

Sorry for the late reply, I have been in Italy for a week.
I just used the Glidecam.
As for the lense. I really love the look of the 14mm. The samyang was incredibly cheap (299€ compared to the Canon L 14mm with 2400€) It is just as you say. I am using it for video way more often then for photography, because the wide angle looks way better in motion than in a picture.
One of the great flaws is that you can't attach filters to the lense :'(
