Martin, most lenses will focus an image if the backfocus is out but you may not be able to focus to infinity depening on which way it is out near or far. Of course most lenses these days focus past infinity so that may not be as much of an issue anymore.
To sum it up about canon glass. I heard that the 24mm II is great, the 85mm, the 100mm IS II, the 70-200mm II and the bigger zoom are really wonderful. The 50mm 1.2 doesn't seem always good. Some are...Some aren't...
From what I've seen is almost all the next generation (version II) of the L glass are pretty wonderful. As soon as they'll come up with the 50mm II, the 35mm II and the 24-70mm II, I think we'll pretty much cover it all. I've seen some grabs of the next version of the 24-70mm and seems incredible. The 24mm and the 28mm 2.8 IS too!!! Ah yes...I almost forgot, I agree with you about the magenta,reddish feel of the canon glass. Prefer Nikon glass about that but have too much canon glass to change and I learned to fix it in post.
What do you think guys of my conclusion. Did I read correctly your post? :)
Evin, do you think that the 17-35, 28-70 and 80-200 f2.8 Nikons are still a good combo today?
I remember watching tests of these lenses here some time ago and they were much better in terms of breathing than the newer ones that are part of this SALT.
What do you recommend as a solution for long and fast lenses for wildlife filming?
Any of the Century converted Nikkors, Canons or the Leica APO system are phenominal. The Red 300mm 2.8 is also quite good.
I have a Century Nikkor 200mm T2 PL mount for sale if you're interested.
