Known Bug

The 85mm lens has an odd fault when used with certain video cameras.

It is designed to only work when it has power on it and in manual focus mode when working with an Amira or a first generation Canon C300EF. If in auto mode, then the lens won't rotate the focus ring at all if manually turned, even when switched off or unplugged. Unlike the rest of the EF primes, this lens needs power to work.
