    X1D with Outs Lenses (via Cambo adapter)

    Yesterday I got the Cambo adaptor to use EOS lenses on the X1D
    Here are some snapshot took around the house,
    all spontaneous pics using both the 55mm and 85mm Otus at 1.4 handhold, but I am planning to try other aperture and also other EOS lenses I got with me

    General impression:

    -both lenses cover the entire sensor and they are very sharp!
    -the 85mm is outstanding on the X1D
    -55mm shows some weakness in the corner especially with pronounced vignetting
    -you need to have a steady hand to avoid rolling shutter
    -the rendering to me is really beautiful


    Cheers to all

    Re: X1D with Outs Lenses (via Cambo adapter)

    Some of the best images I have seen this year. Seems to be a fantastic Combo, this OTUS 85mm on the X1D.
    Maybe should start hunting for a second hand one, as O really fall in lave with these images!

    Thanks for sharing

    Absolutely incredible. That is wow factor.

    I wonder how the the Zeiss 135mm f2 will work...very well I imagine now.

    What kind of shutter speed range is safe to use to avoid rolling shutter?

    I was wondering what the heck are "Outs Lenses"

    You don't happen to have an 85L laying around to try, do you? I'd be interested in seeing results with any other Canon lenses you might have.

    I think I read somewhere that the 135mm Zeiss is spectacular too on the X1D

    To avoid rolling shutter is not about shutter speed but how steady is your hand and of course if your subject is moving..
    Also be aware of flickering light!

    Unfortunately I sold mine when I bought the 85 Otus

    I can say that 135L works very good to on the X1D

    I second the motion, I will like to see the 135mm it's one of those lenses that are undervalued.
    Beautiful rendering, nice construction, a joy to use and a classic design.

    I have to scroll up after I read your comment: I just read it as intended.
    Maybe that is why I work in engineering and not in a law firm?

    Thanks so much for this Ettore, you took a lot of my weekend testing out of my hands. Now it's going to be a lot more weekend play time instead.

    Unfortunately I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I don't think it will work.

    Earlier this year we tested the 85L with another adaptor using the same control system as this one. Because of the focusing system on the 85L it turned into the world's strangest macro lens and wasn't very useful.

    But for lenses that have a different manual focusing system (Such as the Otus lenses as shown below) the results are quite impressive.

    On the copy that I had the glass did not move. The focusing system didn't engage because it wasn't connected to a Canon body.

    Perhaps my calling it a strange macro lens wasn't technically correct, but it was a "fun" experiment trying to manually move the lens and camera back and forth to find a single focus point without any electronic assistance.

    Exactly correct. All of the Cambo Canon adapters don't interface with the camera itself. Just the lens.

    This means no metadata, and no focus commands are shared between the lens and camera.
