I noticed you shot these with 5d4, assuming you are using canon default factory screen -- how hard is it to focus the otus or any manual lenses with 5d4?

Bushwacker, Otus lenses are different when it comes to focusing them, because of their very long and smooth focus throw. It gives the shooter the ability to focus with great accuracy, easier, say, than other Zeiss MF lenses.

Hi bushwacker, sorry for the late answer, but I just saw that there is a question regarding focusing with the 5D MK4.

First of all, the most of my pictures are made from a tripod and are Landscapes with more than enough time to use live view with magnification. This is of course save and easy to do. But when shooting without a tripod and live view I do it like this, press half way the shutter...focus until the focus indicator starts to blink...just continue on focusing with micro adjustments...keep on taking pictures until I have a sequence of 3 to 4 pictures. This is done in a matter of 2-3 seconds and for landscape no problem. most of the time are the fist or the second in focus, even wide open. And yes I do use the canon default factory screen.

These lenses are really a joy to focus, so smooth and precise.

But I should say, that my manual focus lenses are only wide angles! Milvus 15 and 21mm, Otus 28mm and the T/S 17/4 II, therefore I can't say if the focusing method works equally well for the longer focal lengths. But right now I am flirting heavily with the Otus 85mm or the Milvus 135mm. :-)

reason I asked is i tried manual focusing on 5d3 (with the default screen ) the focus is always off. One problem is I can't see contrast difference between OOF areas... this is the reason why i am stuck with 5d2 using the precision matte.

I sympathise. Even though I use a mirrorless, whichis much easier to focus than a DSLR due to it having in-EVF magnification, when it gets tough, what I do is open wide, focus, and then stop down. I find that it helps substantially.

if canon did a 5d4 version with interchangeable screens, I'd buy it right away.

even with 5d2 i still have to ask Canon for parts because the precison matte still not spot ON.

my 5d2's focusing washersor shims got replaced.. i ordered all.. and it's trial and error. at the end it's Daaaammmmmnnn the smile on my face is priceless..

This method works very well, but AF micro-adjustments are just as critical with MF lenses as AF lenses if you employ focus confirm.
