I received my converted N50 1.4 Planar last week and used it over the weekend. So far so good. Focusing has been good,. I have had no mirror clearance issues with 5D. Image quality is excellent and has a "look" very different than Canon.

My recommendation to those considering: Do It. In retrospect, here are some things I would have done differntly:
- I would have made up my mind more quickly.
- I would have bought an equivilant focal length Canon L lens for use while I was waiting. (I didn't have a 50.) With Canon L lenses, you can sell them on e-bay and it basically turns out to be a small "rental" fee. The wait is long, as you know from reading this, so it would have helped to have something to play with while I was waiting.
- I would have save a few dollars and skipped express shipping to Canada. When I received my unconverted lens. I got excited & wanted to get it to Conurus immediately. When backlog is long, a few days extra days in shipping won't make any difference.

I hope this helps. I have really liked my lens so far. Amazing to have something different. Great service from Conurus.
