I have seen footage from the M2/PL mount with various cine-lenses and the differences don't warrant the extra cost. Really high quality Nikon lenses faster than f2.0 are your best bet. You won't be able to pull focus the standard way but most of the AC's I work with get up to speed marking focus by eye (HVX focus assist) and using the monitor to double check the marks.
While a Cooke S-4 has a higher resolving power than a Nikkor-Q the HVX won't really be able to pick up on the difference. On a pro-35 you will see a difference but the HVX is only a 1/3" camera.
As for being professional any shoot that would allow a M2 won't care if its PL or Nikon Mount. Look for photos of Vincent Pascoe's shoot, he pimps that out with a jimmy jib and wireless FF.
