Now I don't have a 5Dmk2. This is something I would like for my 60D. It works.

Thanks for the info – very interesting.
Still wondering about the trade-offs: (1) cannot use on 24mm or wider lenses. I use a 16-35mm and a 24mm lens quite a bit. (2) zoom lenses do not hold focus. OK for set pieces but makes doc shooting tougher.
He just did a test with his 24-70 and did not see a problem. I have not found Canon lenses to hold focus through the zoom anyways. They are more like variable focal length lenses.
