Quality mirror lenses on the 5D and 5d mk2

I've recently acquired an Olymus OM 500 mirror (images)

I bought it to use on my Panasonic G1/GH1 EVIL cameras, but find the equivalent 1000mm (2x crop sensors) very difficult to focus unless the camera is tied down on a sturdy tripod. It is extremely small - even for a mirror, being only 80mm diameter (31/8") by 100mm (4") long I have much more success on my 5DII or 1DIV, shooting from a monopod.
Canon EOS 5D Mark II
1/800s f8 at 500mm iso400

Judge: ' This image may be better in black and white - perhaps even just black! '
