    I believe it's a different mount and you will need an adaptor.

    I believe it is the same rational why local EZ-link top-up machine at MRT station don't accept brunei dollars.

    I believe it is the same rational why you cannot top up a petrol passenger car with diesel fuel!

    You were asking as if Canon and Nikon will face criminal charges for not letting their bodies and lenses mate with each other.....

    it is not beneficial for different proprietary systems to share lens mounts.

    consider below...

    PS3 games cannot play on Xbox 360
    Win app cannot run natively on mac OS
    HD-DVD cannot play on bluray (before HD-DVD was killed)
    nokia charger cannot charge iphone
    us plug cannot fit into our 3 pin
    gsm cannot use in japan or korea

    it's is because they use different mounts (meaning the mouth of the camera where you attach your lens is different) so they need to have adapters (not sure if there is)

    canon uses eos mount, nikon uses f-mount.

    to fit nikon lens to canon bodies
    u actually need some or a combination of these equipment:
    1. UHU glue
    2. duct tape
    3. rubber cement
    4. rubber band
    5. toilet paper

    you can either do it yourself, or consult mcgyver
    if you can't find him, actually the old men at the kopitiam drinking beer every night can help you at a small fee also

    Nikkor lens can be mounted on Canon bodies by using adaptor but not the reverse. Think the adaptor only about S$35.
