    most likely NOT
    you have to modify your 5D mirror
    It is better to shave your mirror down than shave the rear mount of your 19R as this will reduce resale value.
    the 5D mirror QC is rather poor. Reports have claimed fluctuating sizes of the mirror. I suggest you do not take chances with the 19R on your 5D.

    you will see that the 19R 5D combo is very iffy. It is not well understood as yet.
