    It could be mounted using an adapter..."Most" adapters will not give you aperture control on a Canon d-slr, although there is one adapter, sold through 16.9.net, which will allow use of G-series Nikkors on Canon bodies. Novoflex a couple weeks ago announced they were soon to be releasing a $279, contact-equipped Nikon-to-EOS adpater that would allow lens diaphragm control with G-series Nikkors when fitted to the adapter and mounted to a Canon EOS camera.

    You "can" sort of hack the lens, and use tape or a matchbook to righ the aperture to stay at an intermediate or wide-open aperture when used with a regular $20 e-Bay F-to-EOS lens adapter, but it's kind of a kludge.

    A Nikon zoom lens that has an aperture control ring on the lens is a much better choice for using on a Canon body with an adapter.

    Do you mean Olympus E-450 or Canon 450D?

    All I read was "Can I use [Nikon Brand Lens] on [Canon Brand Name] [Olympus Model Number]".

    And now I am confused.

    I thought he meant the canon Eos 450D igital Rebel...

    Regardless, eBay is a good place to find lens adapters, as is the Fotodiox web site--I have bought a lot of adapters from both places.

    The web is a big resource as far as articles about lens adapters goes. Some searches can turn up some good articles. The various manual focus forums are another resource. For p[eople who want to adapt manual focusing lenses to d-slrs, I think the Olympus OM mount lenses and the (Asahai Pentax, Honywell Pentax, Pentax) Super-Takumar M42 thread mount lenses are some of the handiest, due to the way that the majority of those lenses have a stop-down button or lever on most lenses, which allows you to close down to shooting aperture, and then release the button to re-focus with the lens wide-open.
