    Asked this Q in another thread, but didn't get an answer. Anyone?

Responsiveness though? :-)
    Have the same question... along with how SMOOTH the focus pulling is. If you look at this, for example:

    The focus "steps" like crazy. Is it possible to electronically pull focus with Canon L glass much more smoothly?

    I'm not asking about the REDMOTE PRO because obviously no one's used it, but as a matter of the lens itself -- with the Birger mount, for example, was it as smooth as a physical FF?

    I'm using a Zacuto follow focus on Canon lenses. Works fine, completely viable option. The resistance of the wheel might feel better than electronic control (which I have not tried). I hope the Redmote has tension on the wheel, or an adjustment for that.

    I'm using Zacuto bolt on rings until Nikon mount comes out; then I'll go delrin when I've tested both set ups. Gonna have a Canon 16-35 vs. Nikon 17-35 shootout.
