Yes, the footage from the 5D and 7D is remarkable and the DOF is insane. Aside from some downsides involving control issues, the cameras are amazing. The pictures are just clear beyond belief. In a way though, that's kind of what bothers me.
Don't get me wrong. I love how incredibly sharp the images can be, and how great the DOF is, but the clarity of it all seems just a bit unnatural. Am I crazy for thinking this? I mean the purpose for 35mm adapters was to achieve that DOF that the EOS cameras have, but am I crazy for missing the grainy feel and look that the spinning/rotating ground glass provided in the adapters? A cinematic look is more than just DOF, isn't it?
So my question then is, would it be at all possible (when shooting video with the EOS DSLRs) to have the ability to make/use a grain glass adapter before the lens? Would it defeat the purpose all together if this ever happened?
