    posted by Saeeka on 07/19/2011

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    -Easy and smooth to adjust

    -mostly metal construction

    -cloth bellows

    -the price

    Cons:

    -inside cloth is cracked, can see metal mesh in behind

    -Plastic tripod mount/feet

    -lens tips forward ever so slightly

    -Could use EF-S (white square) orientation mark

    OtherThoughts:

    When I received mine the box was mangled but there was no physical damage.

    Inside the bellows I could see the cloth or what ever material its made from was cracked and metal mesh could be seen.

    The ball and pinion became loose and needed tightening. I intend to replace the plastic tripod mount/feet with aluminium.

    Stick on scale on rail comes up easy. Have to keep smoothing it out.

    Bottomline:

    Its a good bellows for the price. Solid construction. For the price a few flaws are to be expected.
