    Very well made

    This adapter is a great deal if you have older prime Nikon lenses that you want to use on an EOS body.

    Using this with Zeiss Distagon 21mm T* ZF.2. Works okay. A little sloppy on the Nikon (lens) side, good fit on the Canon side. Since this lens is manual focus, I'm not too worried about the slop. Easy to install and Easy to remove, no "tight fit" problems.

    I needed something cheap because I knew I wouldn't be using it for very long (transitioning from Canon to Nikon).

    Manual focusing

    By AL

    from New York

    Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - Nikon F Lens to Canon EOS Camera:

    I would recommend it only if you are confident in manual focusing because sometimes its very hard to get a nice sharp image as you get wit AF or even MF cannon lens. Using this adaptor does not allow the lens to communicate with the camera so if you have nikon lenses and you are good at MF then its good to have this and save a lot more money.

        Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - Nikon F Lens to Canon EOS Camera:

        I purchased this adapter so I could use my Nikon mount Rokinon 14mm lens with my Canon bodies. I was impressed with the fit of both the lens and the body (EOS-5D Mark III) to the adapter. There are some cheaper units available but I thought the price for this quality adapter was good. Might buy another on for some of my other Nikon lenses so I don't have to transfer it from lens to lens.

                  I have a Canon 7D and i wanted to use a Nikon lens so i bought this adapter. It works just great, the only thing is that if you don't have proper lighting changing the aperture is a bit of a challenge.

                      I think these adapters used to be much more expensive an complicated. This one is great! I switched from Nikon to Canon about ten years ago and had about 15 Nikon lenses gathering dust. While the auto indexing does't transfer, the lenses work great on the Canon and retained their sharpness. I use it primarily for a 16 fisheye, an 18, a macro and a 600f4. I would only use that lens at f4 anyway. Love it!

                          I wanted to get an adapter to use with my dads old F-mount lenses he used on his fe back in the late 70s/80s. Obviously they didn't have autofocus etc. back then so this adapter was perfect for me. The main lens I wanted this adapter for was a Cosina 100-500mm. There is also a 2x teleconverter which seems to fit/work as well as just the lens does. I was unsure about such a large lens being used as it would seem to put a lot of stress on the adapter but so far so good!! I've had the lens on a tripod and the Canon 40D just balancing it out using the adapter and it has worked perfectly so far though I'm still not sure how safe that really is. There is the slightest of wobbles between lens and adapter if you really try to notice it but it's not something anyone should be put off by. Also, I'm not sure what other people were talking about saying it's difficult getting the adapter off or can't change aperture settings etc. The adapter has a little leaver you push down which then lets you easily twist the adapter and remove it. Then again maybe it's just a perfect fit for the lens I have. Would highly recommend this adapter, though only for older lens with manual focus etc.

                                Works as advertised but it rubs up against my aperture ring effectively locking the lens at whatever F stop it was at when installed. I have a Tamron lens. I just leave the lens wide open now. I think its the lens' fault.

                                  Great product to make use of my old manual Nikon F mount lenses. I was planning to sell the old Nikon lenses to purchase a new Canon lens but was pleasantly surprised to see how well it worked. Plan on purchasing one for each of my older Nikon lenses.

                                            Looks good. Have a micro Nikon with extension tube and switch between both with ease.
                                            Recommended if you don't need auto functions

                                              This adapter is a great deal if you have older prime Nikon lenses that you want to use on an EOS body.

                                                This is a very useful tool. Granted it's not for auto-focus lenses, but if you have a good eye for manuel focus this little adapter will open a wide range of possibilities for you. My favorite lens to use is the Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 zoom lens. Picture quality was excellent and just all round fun. Now I will say that it is not all that useful when shooting in Live-View on M because when you change the apiture on the lens, it darkens up, even in broud daylight. But when set to video mode (if you have video on your Canon) you can take see what your doing, and the picture is beautiful. So I would highly recommend this Adapter. Vello is amazing.

                                                Snug fit on both ends. Slightly flimsy release mechanism... we'll see how long it lasts. Regardless, good value for what it is.

                                                  This is perfect for my Canon 5d Mark III and my Nikon Nikkor lenses. I have the 28mm and 50mm and this adapter works great. I bought one for each lens it's ready to go when I need it. Also, it may be good to purchase extra lens caps (for the back of the lens). Nikkor lenses don't all come with backs - it's just a white plastic cap and won't fit with this adapter.

                                                      Simple, effective lens adapter. This adapter does the job and is easy to use. A little stiff and tight at first, but after a few uses, it has smoothed out.
