I am using fuji S5 with quite a lot of Nikon MF leneses...:)
The manual focusing lenses will still work fine with an adaptor on the Canon bodies except no autoaperture, but will work with the D700 the way your S5pro worked.

The older 5D is a good FX at a low cost. The D700 being a newer body of course has better features with a higher tag. You have to examine if u need the higher/better specs

see what you need the new camera to do like whether you need 10+ fps?

Both cameras cannot do more than 10 fps
then simply the 2 highlighted are the wrong camera for the job if looking for such..

however if dont mind 1.6M for continuous 21fps can check out the K20D...around US$700-ish there.

really have to know what is TS requirements???
