Pretty much as the topic states. I've never used the FF5 with the CN-Es but I need to know if it can clear them. I appreciate any help I can get.

 

Thanks!

I don't have access to an FF5 but I believe they have the same clearance as an FF4 which would easily clear a Canon CN-E.

Those lenses aren't any bigger than a lot of other cine lenses, if your concern is because of some FF5 literature that mentions they are suited to small barrelled lenses, that is because the swing arm is longer and the gearing is designed for shorter focus throws, not because of clearance issues.
