At some point, most of us Nikon or Canon users have probably wondered, “Why can’t I use my lenses on a different make of camera body?” Although there are many different reasons why lenses and bodies from different brands aren’t interchangeable, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. When I saw that Vello made a Nikon to Canon lens mount adapter, I was intrigued. I use Nikon and have plenty of lenses, but I know many people who shoot Canon who might want to try my lenses. Could it really be so simple? Read my review of the Vello Nikon to Canon Lens Mount Adapter to find out. You can also read a previous post about why you might want to use Nikon lenses on Canon DSLRs.
1) Product Specifications
- Allows you to mount Nikon F-mount lenses to Canon EF-mount bodies
- Does not allow communication between lenses and bodies
- Easily removed
2) Packaging and Field Use
The lens mount adapter arrives in a simple little box. It’s not much bigger than a box a 52mm lens filter might arrive in. It comes with some simple instructions that show you how to put it on the lens and remove it from the lens. Keep the instructions! I had some trouble removing it from my lens the first time and had to refer to the instructions to get it off.
