Great alternative to Expensive Canon
on 19 March 2013
This was bought because I didn't want to spend £120 on a Canon original. There was much debate online about cutting costs when using it with such an expensive lens. But, in my opinion, if it came and i thought my lens was at risk, I would just send it back.
Well, I wasn't dissapointed. The fit is perfect, as is the colour match. If I was to split hairs, I'd say that the paint finish is a little rough compared to the finish on the lens, but really, who cares!?
There is a slight ridge where the ring makes contact with the camera, to either side of the felt pad. This over time may wear and cause the ring to mark the lens when rotating it, but. at the moment, is not a concern to me. A little white tape around the inside of the ring would soon remedy this anyway.
All in all, a very well engineered and well fitting mount, which I would highly recommend as a great value alternative to the extorsionally over priced Canon.
