You Pay: $40.95
Product Highlights
  • Nikon Lenses to Canon EOS Bodies
  • Maintains Infinity Focus
  • Allows Macro Focusing
  • Chrome-plated Brass
  • Works with Zeiss Nikon Mount Lenses
  • Pre-AI Nikon Lenses Are Not Supported

The Nikon F to Canon EOS Adapter Ring is custom-made by Cinevate to allow Nikon AI F-mount lenses to fit on a Canon EOS camera, including the popular 5D Mark III and 7D DSLRs. Constructed of long-lasting chrome-plated brass, the adapter ring gives your Canon SLR access to a large line of quality optics, from Nikon's own top-notch lenses to such third-party stalwarts as the Zeiss ZF primes, which have a Nikon lens mount. With this simple adapter, you'll more than double your camera's optical versatility, while maintaining each lens' focal length and full focusing ability, from macro to infinity. Please note that this mount does not allow for electronic aperture control and is not compatible with non-AI Nikon lenses.

    This adapter works perfectly between my 5DMkIII and all of my old Nikon lenses. The camera warns each time live view is activated, but then is good to go. I have had very little trouble removing the adapter, though sometimes I forget which way to turn. The use of these lenses, along with a follow focus rig, have brought my video production to a new level of deliberate manual control. This is NOT for those who rely on auto focus, or auto exposure, as there is no communication between camera and lens.

    Well... this has been thoroughly reviewed. Major cons are few, but important: lens does rattle once it is affixed, as others have noted. But more importantly: the iris tab on the back of older NIKKOR lenses extends a little further into the body of the camera than the newer ones do. So if you accidentally try to remove the lens while your Canon is in live-view mode, like I did, that tab will break the focusing screen inside your camera. That's bad. Cinevate has since included a warning about this on their website: that's because of me.

    Comments about Cinevate Inc Nikon F to Canon EOS Adapter Ring:

    I'd tried a lot of Nikon adapter rings but this one actually grips my Nikon F series lenses properly. There is no play or movement when operating it on my Canon 5D Mk III. Add to this it's comparative cheapness and you have a great lens adaptor and solution for digital video.

    Comments about Cinevate Inc Nikon F to Canon EOS Adapter Ring:

    It works ok. You just need to press a little hard the buttomto release the mount. It lets you focus wiith ease and accuracy. I really don't know what a $[$] mount adaptor can do that that this one cannot.

    Comments about Cinevate Inc Nikon F to Canon EOS Adapter Ring:

    This was a great solution for me. I was given an old set of Nikkor AI Series E lenses. For video these primes are great. This adapter allowed me to use these lenses on my 5D Mark III without problem. The only reason I'm going with 4 stars and not 5 is because I haven't quite figured out how to take it off the lens. Granted, I haven't really tried too hard but rest assured that these will definitely attach your Nikkors to your Canon EOS. They are a solid option with a competitive price. I'm considering getting a second one.

      Pretty sturdy. I have no problem taking it on and off of the lens. It was bought to fit Nikkor 85mm 1.4 to Canon 60d. There is slight wiggle when working the zoom (pretty darn stiff zoom though). Otherwise, it's doable and works good enough for me.

          Comments about Cinevate Inc Nikon F to Canon EOS Adapter Ring:

          I bought this adapter to attach my Samyang/Rokinon Cine lenses to my Canon 5d Mark III. On first attachment to the lens, the ring adapted very snuggly and felt like a fantastic fit. But within no more than 5 attachments to my 5D3, the adapter had developed play. Enough to make me want to avoid using my nikon mount lenses until I have a snug fitting adapter again. I've tried tinkering with the tiny latching mechanism to try and retighten the adapter to its original fit, but I've had no luck doing so. Perhaps this is just a random occurance where an adapter managed to sneak by QA at Cinevate, but I'm out of pocket $40USD+shipping to Australia, so I'm pretty disappointed unfortunately. The lens still adapts to the EF mount, so it's fine for amateur photography purposes, but any time I'm pulling focus, the lens shifts, which makes the image shift - making it pretty much useless for any of my video applications. I can hear the ring slightly jingling while attached to my lens before mounting to a camera. Hopefully Redrock Micro's solution works better for me.

              Comments about Cinevate Inc Nikon F to Canon EOS Adapter Ring:

              I brought the Vello brand adaptor - works ok but with adaptor the lens moves a bit - so i brought the cinevate one thinking as it was more expensive it would be better - and the lens would not move

              i was wrong - it still moves
              its actually worse than the vello one as its difficult to take the adaptor off and taking it off almost damages your lens communications pins

              taking it off the adaptor has to grind against the pins on the lens

              I certainly would NOT recommend this product!

              Comments about Cinevate Inc Nikon F to Canon EOS Adapter Ring:

              This is a very easy product to install, even has instructions.... The first question I ad as a newbie was where does it attach? to camera, to lens? It attaches to the lens. Have it on some really fast cheap nikon ai-s manual focus lenses for video work (Canon 7d) and got it on in no time. Was very worried about fit, looseness etc like some reviews mentioned - I had NO problem with the fit, it's solid... in fact maybe too solid...

              Here's what's not-so-fun about it (and reason for 4 stars not 5): I can't get it off!

              The instructions point to some button to press to take it off... it's not a button, I don't know what it is but it will not come off the lens no matter how hard I try. I've had pieces of my fingernail come off trying to press this "button" down so I can take it off. Also the back lens cap that was on the Nikon glass now does not quite fit... it had a plastic 3rd party back cap and now it's a squeeze... I can get it in there... but worried about scratches etc.

              I will most likely buy another similar item from a local shop since I didn't really save anything by ordering from B&H (sorry guys), because without it the Nikon glass is useless (my foray into SLR & darkroom work was cut short but finances). So - yes this works. Kind of like a charm... in Sabrina the Teenage Witch... there's always a catch or unforeseen side effect. But hey.. this nikon f/1.8 beats the whoo-ha out of my canon 24-105mm f/4.

                I haven't had the loose lens issues that others have described but I'm not using an old Nikkor lens either. It is hard to get off of the lens but I have one per lens. My only issue is that it's a little tricky to get on and off of the camera body (Canon 60D). However you can't beat it for the price.

                    Great for turning old, cheap, prime Nikon lenses into effective tools for achieving unique looks for shooting on my Canon 5D Mark ii. It's easy to use, had a locking device so you don't have to worry about the lense coming lose with some of the cheaper adapter rings. Getting it on requires a tiny bit of force, something I hate when dealing with old glass and my camera body, but has shown no cosmetic wear and always comes off easily.

                          I have a large collection of Nikon non AI lenses. This adapter works beautifully in mounting them on my T3i. Fit is a tiny bit loose on some of the longer/heavier lenses but still WELL within tolerances. Infinity focus is maintained. I didn't need to remove the meter coupling pin on any of my lenes. If you want to use old Nikon F mount lenses on your Canon t2i t3i t4i etc... get this adapter, it works fine.

                          *warning* I have one lens labeled "N/AIS" and it does NOT fit on this adapter. Other then that, I have been using my eight other Nikon manual lenses for over a week with no complaints.

                            Fits well onto the lens with the nikon mount, but there is much too loose on the camera mount. I am using the Zeiss ZF.2's on Canon 5D & 7D bodies. they are ok as a cheap option (no falling off the release as yet!) but if you are looking for something with good lasting quality, this is not it.

                                  I am the proud owner of a canon 7d with limited prime canon lens options however do own a good deal of nikon primes so I purchased 1 and loved the adapter so much I purchased a two more to allow additional flexibility.

                                  Did a two camera shoot for a corporate client within their facility and they were extremely impressed with my ability to adapt the framing to any room size and depth with ease.

                                          I have three of these and it has been updated since I first bought one.

                                          The older one is fine but is not as sturdy as the updated version which is even better and secures the lenses much more firmly and restricts any movement to just the tiniest bit.

                                          Additionally, this new one has a much more defined red marking to line up the adapter with the Canon body.

                                          I received an old nikkor hc 50mm lens and really wanted to use it with my rebel t2i. This adapter does the job, holding the lens snugly and attaches to the canon body with no problem. Only problem I have is the difficulty there seems to be removing the adapter from the lens itself. Not that big of a deal though since I don't have any other camera bodies I can use the glass with. Overall this product has opened my eyes to the benefits of old glass. Looking forward to collecting some more old Nikon lenses.

                                              This works just fine but be aware of the fact that lenses which don't have a manual f/stop ring will be impossible to control from a Canon camera.

                                              This is basically good to use with older Nikon lenses or with lenses with manual f/stop all other newer Nikon lenses are impossible to use unless you change the f/stop in a Nikon camera first.

                                              It looks solid and gets the job done, so far so good.

                                              I bought a while ago a Dot Line adaptor to mount Nikon lens to my 40D, one of the worst purchase I made. It cost me [$], fit is very loose and it does not even give me infinity focus. Last time I check, it is not available anymore, but don`t buy it if it comes back. If you're considering it for its lower price, give a chance to the Chinese ones on eBay.So down with the Cinevate one. I wanted to go for something better, and tighter. I chose this one because I could see all the comments saying it was very tight. The result: definitely better than the Dot Line one, but not perfect. It fit all the Nikon lens I have and gives me infinity focus (even made me realise that one lens needed to have infinity focus adjusted). The con side now... it is still lose a bit. With the 20, 28 and 50 mm, the loose if almost imperceptible, read I could live with it. But with the 100mm Macro (heavy lens)... you hear a metal click when I move the camera around. Another Con but I would say a small one, the rear caps are difficult to put one. Usually, EOS rear cap fits in loosely then gets tight when you turn to lock. I have 3 different caps (Canon, Fotodiox and Generic) and they are all difficult to put on, some more than others.A last small detail, When I first installed the adaptor, it did not lock in place. I had to play with it and even push the locking pin in place with a small screw driver. But for some reason, I don`t have this trouble anymore. Bottom line, it`s a good adaptor, but think twice if it is for a manual lens on the heavy side... Or maybe I got a bad copy. For my part, I will probably go for a Fotodiox pro to fit the 100 Macro. Got one for a Leica and the fit is as I expect it to be, like the one I have with EOS lenses, but, at a premium.Final word, for those buying there first Nikon to EOS adaptor, the design is not made to share the adaptor but rather have one for each lens.
