    Mount Adapter - Nikon F AI Ai-S Lens to Canon EOS

    Hi there,

    I have an Nikon F series 35mm with an OK lens and a Canon 60D with two nice lenses that I really like. In particular I love my EF 40mm pancake lens. So have been think about getting a EOS 35mm body to shoot some portra on. But then saw some mount adapters and am wondering if I should try this option for my Nikon 35mm?

    Appreciate any thoughts! :-)

    People have been using adapters to use Nikon F mount lenses on EOS cameras from the very beginning of the EF mount's life. If you like your F mount lens, you can easily shoot it on a Canon EF mount camera. You just need to buy an adapter.

    The way I read it, the OP wants to put a Canon lens on a Nikon camera. If that is the case, you'd need an adapter that has optics in it, and the flange to focal plane distance on a nikon is less then Canon lenses are designed for, so you'd loose image quality unless you went for a high grade adapter, which would cost more then getting an EOS film body.

    On a side note; if you want an EOS film body, let me know. I literally have over 100 EOS film bodies, from the EOS 620 to the Elan IIe, and everything in between. Seriously, I have boxes of them....
