Product Highlights
  • For Mounting Nikon G Type Lenses to Canon EOS Digital SLR Cameras

The Novoflex EOS/NIK-NT Lens Adapter allows a Nikon G type (no manual aperture ring) lens to be mounted onto Canon EOS Digital SLR cameras. The adapter is equipped with an integrated aperture control ring for manual exposure control.

Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), or any other functions, are not retained using this adapter. The adapter does not transfer any function from the camera body to the lens.

    I had two "made in China" adapters before getting this and I got this only for the aperture lever. I have to say it fits more tightly than the other two adapters that I used, which is nice. I've been using this for over an year now.If I'm trying to find faults in this there are three that are worth mentioning:1. Aperture lever is too short and stays too close to the surface of the camera body. This can make it difficult because you need to use the side of your finger or the tip of your finger to make aperture adjustments.2. The Nikon F aperture lever on the rear of the lens has a very short travel (from max aperture to min aperture) because it's meant to be controlled by a motor or whatever in the camera body at a very high precision. So when using the lever on the adapter, it's sometimes possible to make adjustments that are too big. If they had an option to extend the adapter's lever to get more travel and therefore make precise movements, things would've been ideal and would've solved problem #1 above too.3. Why doesn't this have a focus confirmation chip, especially at this price?! Zeiss ZE 50 1.4 has this feature along with the automatic aperture and not to mention the 7 elements of good glass carefully installed in a well built metal barrel with a smooth focus helicoid all for $700 something, while this flimsy adapter that's not even fully metal costs $300! Frankly, I don't rely on focus confirmation most of the time but after a day of manual focusing with a fast prime your eyes and brain get tired and it doesn't hurt to have this feature which is purely optional anyway.

    I have had this adapter for a little over a year now, and it broke on my in the middle of a shoot today. I was using it on my Canon C300, along with my Nikon 24-70 lens. The mount literally broke apart (The tiny screws all came lose, and the aperture metal ring bent, rendering the adapter unusable). Luckily, I have two and could continue shooting. Just beware of how much weight you put on this, and always carry a spare...

        This is a very well made adapter that allows us to use our great Nikon glass on Canon bodies. The 'thumb' adapter ring works great. Pretty easy to on, and just push the clip to take it off.Works well.

            Very well made, and secure fittings to both lens and Canon body. Although removing the adapter from the lens is a touch fiddly.

            Would be nice if there was a way of having some reference to the aperture via a small scale.

            As others have said, probably a little pricey for what it is.

                The adaptor firmly connects body and lenses. Easy to put on and take off. Not the cheapest for a "does the job" tool though.

                      I was hesitant to buy this for a while, just because of the price, but I couldn't resist since I've had a Nikon 14-24 f2.8 and 70-200 f2.8 just laying around in my room for several months. The adapter is a little tricky to put on, due to the rubber weather sealing on of the lenses, but with little force, it fits right on. It mounts very secure to the camera and works like a charm. Sure you lose some funtions like having a precise f-stop and the preview of your scene is dark if you have the aperture closed, but the light meter still works just fine so you can easily balance the exposure that way.

                          Bought this to be able to use the Nikon 14-24 on my Canon 5D MkII. Works perfectly and is a fine precision instrument. The only problem is the expense. I was worried about close tolerances and paint flaking off on my sensor from cheaper alternatives, so I guess you get what you pay for.

                            I'm now able to use a Nikon 14-24mm f 2.8G on Canon bodies (or any other G lens for that matter). The adapter mounts the lens firmly to the camera body and the aperture ring works well. Novoflex did a good job on this one. I may purchase another if I purchase any more Nikkor G lenses.

                            It is a nifty little gadget that allows you to mount your nikon lenses on a canon camera, perfect since a lot of the legacy nikon primes are cheap, manual only, and very very sharp. The aperture adjustment with the little blue tab is without stops, so you cannot really tell what aperture you are at, but that is what the LCD is very handy for. TTL flash still works, so the camera can still be semi auto when you set your shutter speed.
