question

Does this FF work ok with a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens? thnx.
Asked by: Juan
It will work if you add a gear to the lens, but keep in the mind the 28-135 is a USM lens that lacks physical hard stops. The FF will work in focusing, but you won't have hard stops as the lens lacks it.
