Also so far I am very impressed with the 1DX, nothing like it on the market for stills.
Paul - Great! Glad to hear it's all working out.

Sorry to come to the party late AND wrench it in a slightly different tack, but very keen on keeping my C100 'au naturel' for projects next year:

How about the 70-200 f4? Light enough for straight mount to camera?

Yes. Doing that now with my Canon 70-200 F4 IS. Lovely combo and images.

Lens locked down, camera in normal position, on left. Rotate camera/lens to get the camera body out of the way and give clearance to lock/unlock the large lever.

If you were to use the RRS B2-LR2 II clamp instead the photos are those that you see in my post #9 above. The RRS lever is smaller on the back end. Depending upon how the lens foot is placed in the clamp it can be a bit snug to unlock. It works but if the lens foot is too far forward one would have to rotate the setup all the same.
Just wanted to add, too, a simple solution for this setup (C300 + 70-200 w/lens collar) with the Kessler Kwik Release would be to reorient the release 180 deg. The lock-down lever then is not on the camera side, it's on the opposite side. So, no clearance issues between the lever and the camera body.

Re: C300 & Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM - Lens Support?

I hope I'm not hijacking this thread.. I'm trying to build my Canon Lens collection around the C100. I would like to hear opinions on the benefits of IS with the 70-200 f4. I'm tempted to go with non-IS and help purchase the 100mm macro. It's really double the price for IS, and I wonder if you're typically locked down (tripod) while this tight,, say greater than 100mm. Is there a focal length where IS is no longer viable for video. Lastly, 70-200mm IS or non-IS??

Re: C300 & Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM - Lens Support?

I have he 70-200mm f/2.8 non-IS lens. I rented the IS version several times before buying the non IS lens. In a pinch, if I had to get a long lens, hand held shot, the IS definitely made it possible. The downside is that the IS version is not parfocal. I ran into a number of situations where I would start focused on a tight shot and then widen to a mid shot and lose sharp focus. So, it's a toss up. If you don't mind refocusing when you reframe, it is nice to have the IS.

The IS is not par focal, but the non-IS is! Thanks, that's a major consideration.Thanks!
