I want to get a Samyang, bower, pro-optic, whatever 14mm f2.8.

Is there any downside to getting a Nikon version and an adapter with a focus chip?

I understand that this is the easiest focusing lens and the AF confirm beep is not really necessary but I would like to program it to show 14mm and f2.8 in the EXIF so i can keep things organized.

I originally thought of getting a canon mount and adding a chip but there are too many things to go wrong while like a drop of glue falling on the rear element or the chip ending up in the wrong spot or the glue not holding and the chip falling into my camera.

I have read of folks doing what you suggest. Usually its for those with both Nikon and Canon bodies, but a confirm chip on the adapter works.

If I was smarter, it's what I would've done when I owned the lens!
