Some really amazing shots there.
Sebboh: that stitch on the previous page is outstanding.
R.Young: those auto shots are amazing. That vertical stitch on the previous page gives an amazing perspective.

Few shots I took with the C/Y MMJ version.

I didn't realise at the time and have now noticed that I have scuffed the coating on the rear element in the centre and near the top. It seems that it is only a very slight mark to the coating, and isn't really a scratch, just a blemish. But I was pretty gutted about finding it, even though it doesn't effect photos. I guess the twisting motion combined with shooting at infinity caused a centrifugal force which made the mirror catch the lens when it otherwise would just clear.
I wasn't planning on selling the lens, and it looks as though...Show more →
That's the exact same thing that's happened to me. The mark is not big at all, just a tiny rub mark. And I didn't try panning at all. Simple handheld shot. Took me a while to figure out the real cause of the rub mark as I'm paranoid about getting the rear cap on as soon as I remove the lens.
Funny thing is, it didn't happen on an older 5DMkII I had. I remember that distinctly. And I've taken more infinity shots with the older 5DMkII. I got a new one and saw this mark. So the two bodies definitely differ in specs. The lens is Leitaxed. I just placed a little piece of foil between the lens and the leitax adapter. I know the effects of this, but I dont shoot at infinity too much. But its a bad feeling.
