That's one very strong review! I remember seeing that option when I bought my 25L (which I haven't been very happy with). At the time I noticed it only has (2) stages versus the 3 stages most tripods

I need another ENG B4 standard zoom. A local reseller found one that looks to be in good condition but without a doubler. I see these lenses going for under $5k on eBay these days and don't want to pa

B4 cage is the missing piece connecting new DSLR cameras to old ENG lenses

Deciding btwn B4 adapters - HDx35 vs LA-FZB1 vs other
by Seth Marshall 5 years ago
I like the LA-FZB adapter in that it communicates with the B4 lenses. I "think" both the HDx35 & LA-FZB correct B4 optics designed for the CCD Prism (please correct me if I'm wrong) I do like the HDx3

C300 - bad vignetting through entire zoom range on 24-105

I've never noticed to this extent on my 5D's in the past, but yesterday on a C300 shoot using the 24-70 and 24-105 there was a big difference in exposure from wide open to zoomed in (maybe 1.5 stops).
