No one has mentioned it yet, but there is another type of adapter. The Speedbooster and clones change the FoV by .71x and increase the aperture by about a stop.

That's true, but I deliberately didn't mention it because unless the OP has a very specific use case (such a video), it doesn't really make sense. It is expensive and the lens will still not be fully functional - so why not just pull out and use the 5DIII? Probably get a better result and after all, if you are using the big L glass size considerations have already gone out the window.
