I am just now getting around to something that has intrigued me since I picked this photo stuff back up. adapter rings have been around a long time, there have been recent threads here on the subject. I am interested in using older wide angle manual aperture and focus lenses for indoor group shots in low light, and for outdoor panoramas from a tripod. I am thinking 20 or wider, as I already have an old 20-35 I can use now. I can't justify a 14 prime canon 'L', don't want a fisheye, and I don't like photostitching- thats what I am trying to avoid here- could someone with experience in this area please respond, any help sending me in the right direction is appreciated, thanks.
By the way, if I ever replace the 20-35, it will be with a 17-40, but not yet. I can't take advantage of the ef-s lenses, neither of my current bodies will accept them. I am still hoping someone can point me to a hot set up using an adapter and an older 'bargain' lens

First - wide, good IQ and inexpensive do not ever exist in the same sentence. Did you really want a Nikon? Not exactly adapter "rings" though. Yes, Canon has a weakness in the wide area, in general.

there is a thread here previously about using nikons, but if there is a better alternative, thats what I am after. uust wondering what works well, and kind of interested in trying it even if it doesn't save me a pile of money. the highly rated canon wides are way too expensive to justify for my needs, and the others, well some people have strong negative opinions about them. I guess that qualifies as weaknesses in the wide area.

it kind of centered on one particular lens, and one particular type of adapter, are there more?
