Not sure how well this will work - but interested in hearing how it turns out for you if you manage to slap it on your 5D.

First concern - the lens will be made to cover a smaller sensor, either 1/3", 1/2", or 2/3". The 5D's sensor is much larger. The adapter would most likely need some type of optic intermediate.

Second concern - SD ENG optics can perform tragically on HD cameras. I experimented with a few broadcast ENG SD zoom lens' on a Sony EX-3. Chromatic aberration was horrible when even slightly zoomed and on anything wider than F8.
