Can't see why not, looks like a very nice set up too.

Of course all settings will have to be done manually, I'm having a lot of success with Mamiya 645 lenses this way.

Voigtlander is my mother's maiden name, wish there was a family link.

There's also this adapter by Fotodiox.

Fotodiox have a good reputation, I'm not having any problems with their adaptor for Medium format 645 Mamiya lenses on my Canon 7D.

It will most definitely "fit" with an adapter, but you will have focus issues.

The flange focus distance (distance from the mount's flange to the film/sensor) is much greater on a Canon than it is on a Leica M. This will make infinity focusing impossible; you will only be able to focus on very very close objects if at all. Unless you're doing macro photography exclusively, that lens will not be ideal for your Canon.
