Nice shot... I have been waiting for someone to get this combination. I am very interested in it myself - hope you don't mind if I ask some questions:
How is the live view (vs the Canon 5d mk 2)? The screen is OK in daylight?
Have you tried the 24 ts-e also?
Does the Metabones adapter feel like it would stand up to a lot of lens changes every day?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help...
Hope you will post some more soon.
I think the live view is better the 5d2 but not as good as the 5d3. The 5d3 has much better live view, but the tiltable screen is quite nice. I tried the 24 ts-e as well, and like the 17mm it was sharp into the corners on my quick test. The raws look very nice, much more DR than either of the Canons, with nice clean shadows. (which is my one big gripe with the 5Ds) There is no question the Canons have better build quality to them.
The adapter is my only concern at this point. It seems very well constructed and the finish is very very good, but I do worry about the lens release button and how it will hold up in the long term. It works flawlessly with all my lenses. I only have ZE primes and the TSEs so I can't test the autofocus. But it works exactly the way I wanted it.
The weather here has been horrible for the few days, but starting tomorrow night it should start getting better. So I am planning on taking the camera out with all the lenses this weekend and spending some time getting to know it better.
Hope it helps.
