Not the adapter

That is weird. My adapters (2 different designs) both totally clear the black part.

The lens mounts to the adapter fine.  It's mounting the combo on the body that's the issue. The black tab starts at the side and is rotated down. As it rotates, it strikes something in the mount throat of a 5dII.  It's possible a slightly thicker adapter might just provide clearance, but then you have a metal tab fractions away from the electrical contacts.

But if you have this lens mounted, I'd like to see it.
