After the vinegar, rinse out with fresh water then 99% rubbing alcohol.   The alcohol should displace the any leftover water and dry with no residue.

Any USM EF lens can be over ridden using the MF ring on the lens.  I use this method using my Aquatica housing.  I have the AF/MF Macro port.  If I want to use MF, then I turn the external knob on the port body, this is in turn connected to the MF gear mounted on the lens.  I have back button AF enabled so if I want to use the manually focused image then simply triggering the shutter release works.  If I want to go back to AF then simply re-engaging the rear AF button starts the camera to AF.  Aquatica also has a MF port extension for use with the Canon 16-35/17-40L Wide Angle zooms.

In Topic: Canon 5dS and 5DR

Here's a very exciting comment from Tsunemasa Ohara, the Senior General Manager of Camera Research and Development at Canon Inc the man in charge of the 5ds & 5dsr's development  "...existing EOS 5D Mark III body shell used for these cameras" and from Canon CPS-Europe : Compatible with most EOS 5D Mark III accessories (note: the WFT-E7 requires new USB cables and firmware updated)."


This means that the new 5ds and 5dsr should fit in existing 5dmk3 housings! =)  Now to get some 44" wide media for my HP Z3100!  Heh heh.
