I'm contemplating the purchase of some ZF lenses for a Canon 5D ll.  Simple question...... will the Canon give me focus confirmation?


Thanks for any reply.....

If you buy an adapter with a chip on it, it will.

Do you mean ZE lenses?  If so, they do provide focus confirmation.  At least my 50 1.4 does.

So that rules out the Novaflex - right?  

Thanks for the reply.

No..... I mean the ZF lenses.  Zeiss doesn't make the 100 or 50 f2 macro in a ZE mount.

I have Canon and the 100 ZF...no focus confirmation.  I wouldn't want it anyway, for my apps.  Never tried the chipped adapters though (mine from Cameraquest).

Does live view function?  That's the only 'real' focus confirmation I would trust other than an image on my computer.

yes, liveview isn't dependent on focus confirmation.
