Follow Focus with Canon L lens...?

I wonder if anyone has some advice on how to focus pull with Canon L lenses? Do you also use pull-marks on the follow-focus ring for those lenses, or is there perhaps a workaround for the continuos focus ring? It's kind of frustrating that those lenses don't "lock" at either end, always making my markings go out of bounce.

I've heard from Birger Engineering that the wireless follow-focus system that they use with the RED body/Canon lenses may be coming directly to the 5DII. Maybe if more people inquire about this, the sooner it will be released.

Their reply:

Stay tuned. We hope to be making an announcement about this in the coming weeks.

Regards,
Amy.

Comments or Questions: Will the Birger Mount/Impero work on Canon EOS cameras as well? This would be great on the Canon 5D Mark II.

That would be awesome if they did a wireless follow focus. That said....I wonder what a wireless FF costs? Many people have moved to the 5DM2 because of the low cost, if a wireless FF is twice the price of the camera, I don't think there will be many takers. :)
