Was not aware of this. Is it generally worth it?

I know there are some who use the Nikon 14-24 on Canon cameras because it's a great landscape lens. Of course you lose AF ability, but I believe you get focus confirmation depending on the adapter used.

You do realise that they wont auto-focus and you will need to have a Nikon lens with an aperture ring?

To some people: it is.

I was a nikon shooter at one point. All the gear I bought was intense. When I can over to shooting Canon, I felt overwhelmed at the fact that I had to repurchase all my gear all over again. It would have been less expensive purchasing an adapter to fit my Nikkors to my Canon but I was a softy and just repurchased everything :)

True story.

There are a lot of good ole' Nikon AI-S lenses that work nicely with EOS...of course requiring stop-down metering and manual focus. My favourites are 105mm f/2.5 and 35mm f/1.4 (optically very similar to the Canon 35 f/1.4, but about 1/3 the price).


X-T3 | 10-24 f/4 | 18-55 f/2.8-4 | 16 f/1.4 | 80 f/2.8 Macro | 55-200 f/3.5-4.8 | 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 | 1.4x TC |

Not at all. Adapters are available to mount almost any lens for the 35mm SLR format on Canon with Minolta being the big exception. Pentax are fine on crop cameras but may need modification to be used on a full frame body.

The main restrictions, as mentioned above, involve the lack of electrical connections between the camera and lens. That means no AF, no control over electric apertures and no IS/VR/etc. Basically you need to stick with older, all manual lenses.

I gotta admit, I prefer the choice of whether to AF/MF on my lenses:)!
