Canon has a bad habit of dropping support for Mac users. All of my Canon scanners no longer work on 10.8. They still work fine on PCs, although some don't work on Windows 8 either.
True, my Canon scanner drivers were obsolete within a year and were never fixed. I eventually bought a copy of Sliverfast and my 2002 FS4000US film scanner works great under OS 10.8.2. My Epson 2400 flatbed scanner is of similar vintage and Epson never ported the apps to run under Intel only OS 10.8x. However, it works fine for basic scans with Apple's generic "Image Scan" app.
As to the 5D, Canon stopped supporting tethering and similar computer connection functions a couple years back. RAW file conversion is still supported in DPP. Realize tethering and uploads are supported in aftermarket apps like Aperture and Lightroom. Most of us don't bother to load EOS Utility as it's completely useless save for writing your name in the camera's EXIF data.
But, yes, a Firewire 800 or USB3 card reader is the way to go. Direct uploads via 5D wire are silly slow.
