Yes, a ND filter is the solution. Although, it seems there isn't any solution for the focal length = shutter speed rule. Unless, the manual mode or twisted lens.

Back to the topic

Chris, how can you get ISO 800 with 1/50 shutter with EF lenses other than with the 50mm one?

Maybe it's all the same from 30th to 100th shutter but I'm loosing more light with 1.2 85mm than with 50mm 1.8 because the apparent focal length to shutter speed rule.

Rack focusing is also almost impossible with USM fulltime electronic manual focus that might be the case of 1.2 L only. Straight from the cam http://www.autonomicum.com/forums_up/MVI_0017_bela.MOV (hear the inconstancy of my hand turning the electronic focusing barrel).

I like the mylar ring idea much better. Maybe some holes can be cut for power. The key is to find a way to keep it from rotating.
Tape or mylar. You are correct. The mylar ring idea is better.

There is who has mentioned the focal length = auto shutter speed rule is misleading because it applies only for taking pictures during video recording. Is that so?

Manual Control. The Truth !

Shutter, Aperture, ISO-Display: Are they all wrong?
