Zeiss ZF lenses on 5D ll
« on: February 08, 2009, 05:15:56 PM »

I'm contemplating the purchase of some ZF lenses for a Canon 5D ll.  Simple question...... will the Canon give me focus confirmation?


Thanks for any reply.....

Do you mean ZE lenses?  If so, they do provide focus confirmation.  At least my 50 1.4 does.

If you buy an adapter with a chip on it, it will.

So that rules out the Novaflex - right?  

Thanks for the reply.

No..... I mean the ZF lenses.  Zeiss doesn't make the 100 or 50 f2 macro in a ZE mount.

I have Canon and the 100 ZF...no focus confirmation.  I wouldn't want it anyway, for my apps.  Never tried the chipped adapters though (mine from Cameraquest).

Does live view function?  That's the only 'real' focus confirmation I would trust other than an image on my computer.

yes, liveview isn't dependent on focus confirmation.
