    Stick with Nikon lenses for your Nikon camera.

    They do make adapters but it's not a good solution.

    One a side note, the movie 'The Corpse Bride' was shot entirely with Canon 1Ds II cameras and Nikon lenses.

    I would believe mike! He's always on top of things and I haven't seen him be wrong yet. I've never tried an adaptor like that.

    I saw a video about it. They already had a bunch of pro Nikon glass and the best camera at the time was the 1Ds. Since auto metering and focus were not needed, the adaptors were a good choice for them.

    It is much easier to convert nikon lenses to canons than the other way around.
