The filters are going to be more difficult than say the TV-jones w/ an EM2 mount. (ears to mount to a HB ring) There are converter rings and certain EM2 mounting kits a guy named Ripley sells on here that the HS filters will work on your 5120, but TVs will be easier to install. Some of the GHS stuff is alright, cant say it sounds THE BEST, but it sounds good.
