    hey all i own a d50 and am using an older canon ae-1 program.

    yes i know the camera is old. it just has some nice lenses that i would love to use on my nikon.

    I have only read a couple of things about adapters so if you want please fill me in on your opinion.



    thanks

    I almost forget these adapters existed.
    Good information here

    Oh, looks like he is writing about going the other way. I've seen what you want but I think you
    loos abilty to focus to infinity. Worth it in the one special case I rememebr where they put a Conon perspective control lens on a Nikon.

    Possably NOT cost effective as you can now buy used Nikon MF lense for not much money. The no-meter problem is not so bad unless you are shooting action in light that changes. For static subject you can simply do a test exposure and look at the histogram display to nial the exposure.

    i have looked extensively into adapter solutions. but mostly to adapt to Canon EOS.

    as far as i know there arent any adapters to allow Canon FD lenses to mount on anything but canon FD bodies. :( sorry man.
