I just read a very interesting post on another site about a guys using Medium Format lens on his 5D MK2 for both stills and movies. I find this intriguing and would like to try it on my 7D. I am wondering what experience there is in this community with using either medium format, other manufactures and non digital canon lens. Any recommendations, suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

Eric

I still use some Nikkors on the 20D, & sometimes just because it's easy to adjust the f-stops on the outside of the lens. And some of them are actually sharper than the "L"s.
One general thing about MF lenses is that they're usually not as sharp as lenses designed for smaller formats (35mm) because they don't have to be.

I home-made a medium format lens adapter for my Zeiss and Kiev lenses for Kiev 60 camera.
But I didnĀ“t use the Zeiss Jena 180/2.8 and 80/2.8 often. Image quality was good with these. Older coating could probably cause more flares - could be used if you like this.

Most of my lenses are not digital optimzed - I use most time adapted or converted manual focus 24x36mm lenses: Canon FD, Minolta Rokkor, Zeiss Contax, Zeiss Jena, Meyer Goerlitz, Steinheil, Nikon,... - see my equipment list.
Most of my lenses are sharp enough for pixel peeping.
