    it doesn't make it parfocal, since that is, by definition, that the focus doesn't change when you zoom. But the focus does change and it is corrected by the focus. 
    Sony got an interesting solution with the 18-110mm f/4.0 too, where the focus element is moved to correct. The problem with such electronic solutions is, that fast zoom movements can be too fast to correct and that you can't use those lenses on another non supported mount via adapter

    Works great with the C300ii and a 70-200 as well. 
    You could say it performs as if it is parfocal, but there are situations where it won’t work

    The truth is that most filmmakers are doing fairly subtle zooms, so AF does work well enough in many cases to render the need for parfocal lenses redundant.

    The problem is how fast and how smoothly the focus mechanism in the lens can track focus, which is both: working out if focus is lost, which direction to go to find it, and by how much; and also being able to actually change the focus fast enough.
    The other method is to analyse the lens ahead of time and store that data, in which case you don't need to assess how focused anything is, you just get a zoom reading from the lens and compensate.  The XC10 does this, with its fixed 24-240mm equivalent lens.  Unfortunately I found in real life that if you zoomed quickly it wouldn't be able to keep up, and also it wouldn't reacquire it through the lens data, but would require the focus mechanism to do it's thing.
    If you zoomed slowly then it worked though, so that was nice.

    And absolutely punching the air level of good news for us Leica SL owners, especially the EF adapter.
    For Novoflex, possibly not such good news.

    Hi Tupp
    Thanks, those do look good and I canon color a lot. But, I already have the 4/3 to PL lens adaptors which are really nice.
    Thanks,

    I got the camera a couple days ago after reading Andrews post. I wanted something to replace my Black Magic pocket camera for these old Zeiss s16s super speeds set I have . To put it bluntly, I’m not getting the results . The first two shots on his video sold me on it. Didn’t even watch the rest.  
      I’m used to shooting with a red dragon so maybe I don’t know what I’m doing . But, I can’t get the stabization to work very well .
    Thinking of returning it on Monday . Sad, because I really love these lenses and would really like a viable s16 camera. I also have a Zeiss
    s16 10-120 which is awesome to shoot with . Small,  light weight and s35 its a 20 240 f2.0 . I also like the s16 look. 
    I had just watched The Wrestler the night before and that was shot on s16 so, that probably influenced my purchase as well.

    I lived under communism former Yugoslavia fuck that Our brand of Communism was not as bad as USSR because Tito leader of Yugoslavia told Stalin to suck it and made friends with USA. Life was good if you wore Yugoslavian and keep your mouth shut and don't have ideas. Country was not closed like USSR but i seen my first African American man in 1995 when i moved to Canada. I remember you could only  buy ice cream in summer because kids for some reason should not eat it in winter. I remember when chuck norris VHS tape come to my town everybody goes crazy because its rare event as rare as VCR in my town communism made Yugoslavia 10 years behind from the rest of the world even with US help because what communism does it makes people paranoid and scared of outsiders and extremely patriotic always tense and love and worship of Tito makes him god like. of yeah best part was the TV only 2 channels and both run by the state.
    Capitalism is not perfect but fuck its bazillion time better then communism. Its because of Capitalism that we have all the camera technology ideas free thinking you think that communism will let you bitch and moan on forums and twitter about anything and everything you say anything that criticizes state and those in power they just come at night when you sleep and take you away. Those wannabe communists have no idea what it really means on paper communism is amazing but in reality its murderous and schizophrenic

    Plastic explosives could be hidden inside a working LiPo battery (Lithium by itself can explode and burn just by contacting water). Checked bags get heavier screening for bomb chemistry via high-energy devices: http://www.sds.l-3com.com/products/explosivedetect.htm. Additionally, checked bags are stored inside more resilient containers in the cargo hold vs. the relatively thin airframe where passengers sit. A bomb might also be used to gain access to a locked cockpit.
    These directives come from intelligence agencies and were also implemented on various levels from the prior administration, only now becoming politicized and amplified by people unable or unwilling to seek the truth, unaware that they are pawns in a much bigger plan. The programming is brilliant as the victims aren't even aware of what's been done to them, where their first unconscious reactions are typically expletives, irrational behavior, silliness, ad hominem, and complete inability for calm, rational, and polite discussion when their programming is challenged. How effective and deep does this unconscious programming go? Does Shaq really believe the Earth is flat, or is he just trying to get traffic for his podcast? http://gizmodo.com/some-photos-of-earth-for-shaq-who-thinks-the-earth-is-1793422926
    I've been studying the comment sections on MSM sites (all sides), comments on this forum too, and most people don't realize how close we are to nuclear annihilation. Everyone is acting like children insulting the previous and current leadership and each other. No one is trying to get along or solve the bigger issues. This is what the people behind the curtain want- everyone fighting each other! If the rumors of alien overlords here to protect us are false*, we're in big trouble if we don't start working together to live in harmony with each other and the planet. It looks like a highly advanced civilization on Earth was destroyed about 12,000 years ago. Are we going to repeat it? Will the iRock and iStick become the cool new gadgets?
    * UFOs look more like advanced terrestrial vehicles from everything I've seen. 99.999% look like hoaxes (nice job decorating your "UFO" like a Christmas tree). Truly alien or interdimensional vehicles could be invisible to us.

    Really disappointing to hear how many useful idiots there are ready to tear down the USA for anything we do or advocate. And why? Just because we want to protect our citizens from killers---who have said they're coming. Just because we don't want our leaders to engineer an invasion of our land that will change its culture and character and polity for the worst we are monsters.
    Wanting to be safe doesn't mean we're bigots and white supremacists. It just means we don't want to open the flood gates to those who hate us--it means we don't want in America what we have seen happen all over Europe, where leftist useful idiots holding the reins of power have put the lives and safety of their own citizens in peril and their culture at dire risk.
    I'm sick of being called a bigot and a racist because I reject the Globalist agenda. That's the low garbage of the cad who has no argument and is incapable of reasoning and weighing the evidence---and has learned NOTHING from the European tyrants of the 20th century. Globalist centralized command and control power is a river of blood, of Kristallnachts on steroids, and massive starvation "for the greater good" than Mao ever dreamed of.
    The poison of collectivism has untold millions bamboozled under the rhetorical flourishes of various "isms"---all with the intent of creating a prison planet for the few of the cognoscenti to rule and bind us all.
    I do video to escape this crap. Could we just stick to that here?
