You can use a zoom. I've used a zoom (28-135) with my Letus Extreme and it's pretty cool. However, unless it's an "L" lense it son't be a fast lens, so depending on the light conditions during your shoots a slow lens may or may not work because all adapter loose quite a bit of light. The Letus Extreme looses about half a stop which isn't bad at all but it's still a loss. I tend to use prime lenses more. I have a Canon 50mm f/1.4, a Canon 85mm f/1.8 and am looking at buying a Canon 24mm f/1.4.

Thanks.
Thank you!

I tend not to use custom settings most times. That way the original is "plain jane" and I can tweak it in post the way I want. When I do, I use the Black Press and bump up the color saturation a bit. But mostly in post I simply bump up the levels (black mainly).
