I know there is an adapter, but does anyone know if this combination works without issues? In particular the mirror hitting the lens - I know this was the issue with the 5d classic,.

It can vary from body to body, from my understanding, with both the 5D and the MkII. On mine (SMC Taku & 5Dc), the mirror hangs up on the return at infinity. The smallest turn of focus will give the mirror enough room to clear - I would think that a <1mm shave would free things up.

Sure. Also, forgot to mention, that some seem to have better luck with different adapters. So, with all of the variables, it's a bit of a roll of the dice. Good thing it's not to expensive of a game to play!

As stated, it depends on the body. Too many variances from one 5D to the next, and the 5D2. May hang on one, but not on another. Mine hung on my 5D...I filed about a mm or so off the rear lens shround and all is good.

Particularly inexpensive because I found this lens in perfect shape in my dads stuff with three early 60s Nikkors.

Its a very good lens...if you don't plan on selling it, the filing should only take you a few minutes. Just be sure to completely cover the rear of the lens with blue painter's tape (the kind that doesn't leave any residue). When I filed mine, I put two layers of tape to protect the rear element. TBH, its goes so quickly that it'll probably take you longer to apply the tape than it will to file the shroud.

The Nikkors adapt nicely - I have a 35/1.4 AI that I'm liking alot.

I've got my tools ready, I'm just waiting on a Zeiss 50/1.7 - if I like the Taku more, I'll shave it. If not, I'll sell it.

I had a Fotodiox adapter for that lens and had no issues with it hitting the mirror. Probably just luck and different tolerances that allowed it to work without modifications. It was a great lens on my 5DMKII while I owned it.

What about non-AI Nikkors? I have a Nikkor-Q 135 3.5 from the early 60s, a 28 and a 50mm too. Wouldn't mind goofing around with them.

Yup, same adapter for any of the the F mount MF Nikons. If the lens has the little metal tab, you'll have to break it off, though.
