I think there is a 3rd party adaptor available in the market. However, not too sure where you can get them. As for functionality, afraid I can't give you any, cos I'm a Nikon Cam user. Never tried a Canon with a NIkon lens set-up...:)

there is "nikon lens to canon body" adaptor. but u need to manual focus.
the adaptor comes in two types. one can do infinity focus (more expensive) and the other cannot.

Nikon cameras cannot use canon lenses simply because it's not compatible... not other reasons...IIRC, it's due to the lens mount to sensor/film plane distance. Nikon mount is further than Canon's. Canon's mount is also larger than Nikon's.

There is a some good Canon lenses out there... to be fair.

Manual all the way! Focusin, metering, stop down before shooting.

I really don't see your logic.

The reason why you can't mount a Canon lens on a Nikon body is because the lens mount of a Canon lens is larger than that of a Nikon lens. With the smaller mount on your Nikon body, you can't mount a larger lens mount even with adapter.

What has it got to do with built and quality? Please get your facts right, and don't write flame baits.
