    Default How to mount Nikkor lens on Cannon body

    Any ideal where to get the connector for Nikkor lens on Cannon body? What would you lost when you do that? Really like the FF on Cannon body.

    You can check in B&S, saw a post there for an adapter.

    you can pm pq23. basically there are 2 types of adapter.
    one with a chip and the other is without chip.

    both are to be focus manually.
    the one with the chip will have the LED flashing in the camera(telling you it's focused)

    the other one will have to focus by your eyes(you loose auto focus), there's no LED to tell you. A disadvantage of without the chip is, there is no center split screen in the viewfinder, it's quite difficult to focus(especially in low light). Agar-agar

    As far as I understand, when not mounted, Nikkor (G) lenses close their apertures down to the smallest; as for Canon (EF) lenses, its the other way round, with their apertures wide open.

    Manual focusing for me is okay, but does it allow us to set the f-stop whether with or without the chip? If it were to be f/22 all the way, it'd be pointless.

    yes you can set the f-stop by turning the apeture ring(for manual lens only)

    Thats what I was asking... Nikkor G lenses don't have aperture rings, so can't be used..

    Then someone has to come up with an EF-F signal transcoder.
