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.
Itruong8: lovely shot of the japanese maple.
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 I will struggle to get what I paid for it now, its a good job I'm keeping it. I will have to make sure any infinity shots with LiveView and then focus forward before exiting...
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.
