    Always have it with me too... Have you tried the USM II? I'm sure you have.

    I remember you saying that , which is definitely a big reason I am considering it. But, it costs about twice as much as the f/4.

    Can I assume, from your answer, that the f/4 IS hasn't been tested and approved?

    It's so worth waiting a little longer for. A much better lens.

    f/4 is still a few months out.. it is a great lens, nice and sharp, but the breathing is pretty bad so its a bit lower on the list.

    70-200 f/2.8 IS II is my favorite all-around lens. Have you tried the new 300 f/2.8 IS II? This is a fantastic lens, even with 1.4x/2x extender extremely sharp

    Jarred, is it possible to "force" Canon lenses' aperture to perform as smooth as the Nikon lens aperture in your recent vid?

    Or Canon glass owners will always have to deal with "clicks" because the lens motor won't allow that?

    OK - maybe you've convinced me.

    Pardon me if the answer to this question is buried in some thread that my considerable diligence didn't uncover, but will the aluminum Canon mount also work on the Epic? In the store, only titanium Canon and PL mounts are listed as ala carte mounts, and on the Epic X (brain only) page, the only mount options listed are for those two titanium mounts. Is it possible to buy the aluminum Canon ala carte and use it with Epic?

    Any piece for the Scarlet will work with the EPIC and vice versa. The reason why you can't buy a Aluminum Canon Mount "ala carte" is because RED wishes to fill all orders for the Scarlet/Al Canon mount first...

    The answer is "No" 100% of the time you don't ask.

    Really nice lens, I still have to do some tests to see how it does stopped down.

    This is my favorite lens and I've got the Canon 16-35mm 2.8L.
