About me:

I’m interested in the creative process for what we experience and perceive as art. I
have a paradigm of a creative intent, sort of engine that powers art. It's a series of
jouneys whixh together form what I call 'The Arc of Intent'.

We start with the creator's vision, impulse, thought and imagination to go through a
process of embedding these motivations and stimuli into a physical form such that it
carries the potential for all those feelings to be reinvoked each time the work is
experienced by another person.

This way of defining art is something I am continuing to refine for my own use. If
others can see benefit in this approach, then I'm happy! Asher

Marty4650: Simon.... you need to hire this Cicala guy.

His tech knowledge is astounding, and he can write really well.


Is it really the case that the 5DII can't take advantage of the newer Canon lenses only because of some new hardware feature found in the 5DIII and the 1DX but not in the 5DII? Or is it that the 5DII focus motor is, for example, programmed to move in larger increments, so overshoot occurs. In the 5DIII, with smaller increments, then there would be less overshoot. IOW, I suspect that Canon simply denies features to lesser cameras just to distinguish the higher ranker models.

So I'm interested in whether the hacking community can attack the barriers to use of the new lenses for more accurate focus. I doubt that all of the differences are hardware related. more likely, I suspect rationing of features. Have you looked into this possibility?
