The Redrock Micro Nikon to Canon EF Adapter allows you to connect Nikon lenses to your Canon EOS camera (in this case, the camera I was using was the t3i). As I had many old Nikon lenses that were not in use, I decided to purchase an adapter.

My immediate concern was that it would not fit, but upon receiving it, my worries soon dissolved as I attached the adapter. It fits perfectly on my lenses and there is no wiggle when focusing or zooming (even on my heavy Quantaray zoom lens), which is crucial for shooting video. Because the adapter requires very tiny screws and can be mildly challenging to attach, I recommend purchasing one adapter per lens. This way, you won't need to worry about removing and re-attaching the adapter to a new lens, or losing screws in the process (on that note, be sure not to lose any screws, as the adapter does not come with any replacements).

All in all, this is an excellent product with good construction and excellent value. it is also one of the most affordable adapters I have seen. If you already have good Nikon lenses, this will save you potentially hundreds of dollars by allowing you to use Nikon Lenses with your Canon cameras.

Happy shooting!

Decent build but the screw sets are just nutty. Tiny little allen wrenches (that you'll never find again) mean that these adapters are on to stay. It works for me now but as I look at this old nikon glass that I have them on I realize that I may want to use the lenses for other video purposes like the new metabones for BMCC.
For something so simple it would seem easy, but of course it isn't.
For my dough find an adaptor that goes on and off more easily.

good value for the money

      Comments about Redrock Micro Nikon F to Canon EF Lens Mount Adapter:

      Some mechanical skills are required for proper installation, however for the price this is an outstanding value.

      NOTE: the "lens notch" receiver set screw may not properly sink in it's position, creating an internal hazard for the camera... therefore, I instead use it for positioning only, TIGHTENING THE OTHER THREE RETAINER SCREWS. I THEN remove the receiver calibration screw, so it will have no excuse to come loose inside the camera during use - which could prove disastrous!

      The 3 retaining screws ARE ESSENTIALLY PREVENTED from doing this by fact that even if loose, they would be held in place by the camera retaining ring outside the lens.

      That said, MUCH VALUE FOR THE MONEY. Future versions might provide a "snap" version of this, which would be a click-lock feature, thus eliminating potential for hazard. But for the money, a good value.

        First, have a pair of tweezers or very small pliers on hand. Second, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. Other than that, it's easy, and solid. NOTE: this is NOT meant to switch between lenses. If you have more than one Nikon/Nikkor lens, buy one for each. Once it's on there, you won't want to remove it. You can, just not very easily. Also, this does NOT support any AF or aperature or any other electronics. Manual only. I don't yet know the weather sealing on it, but I'm not about to test it. I think I'll keep this in the studio.
        I love being able to use my favorite old Nikkor nifty fifty again!

          This was a no-brainer for turning an old Nikkor 50mm f1.8 into a pivotal lens for night shooting on my canon rebel. Great quality. Low price.

          Comments about Redrock Micro Nikon F to Canon EF Lens Mount Adapter:

          This is a step up from some of the cheaper adapters in that it doesn't wobble at all. You don't want your lens to wobble, ESPECIALLY when shooting video. The set screw helps to keep it in place, but it also makes it kind of tedious to swap the adapter. If you plan on using this in the field and need to swap lenses often, get one of these for each lens and keep it on there. You will waste too much time swapping the adapter otherwise. Keep in mind that this is just for manual lenses, but for the price you weren't expecting otherwise. Works great for what it is.

          Comments about Redrock Micro Nikon F to Canon EF Lens Mount Adapter:

          Hello, I hope you guys can help me.
          I purchased a Zeiss 135mm and a Zeiss 25mm both with nikon mount.
          I have a canon 6d, but I only make videos, so people told me to buy the lenses with the nikon mount and not the canon one because the nikon mount zeiss lenses come with manual aperture control.
          The thing is that i have the lenses, my camera and a REDROCK nikon to canon mount adapter and i really dont know how to install it on the lenses. Because there is no place for the little screws to insert!
          In the camera the mount fits perfect, but i dont know how to put it on the lens... it fits but theres no CLICK.
          Thank you all

              So far my 80-200mm is rock solid on this mount. It didn't take too long for my other mount to start getting loose on that lens. I don't mind the tiny screws if it keeps things tight. Highly recommended.

                Comments about Redrock Micro Nikon F to Canon EF Lens Mount Adapter:

                This lens adapter works exactly how it should. It's built to last. Made out of a tough precision-machined aluminum, the adapter is lightweight but doesn't sacrifice strength. The adapter comes with all the screws and tools necessary to mount it to the lens first, securing with four small screws, and then locking the adapter mounted lens into the body of the camera. The modification takes a bit of steady hands, but luckily the kit includes a printed out step-by-step instruction guide to make the installation as easy and as clear as possible. Be careful, the screws are incredibly small which make them really easy to lose. The adapter locks the lens into the camera body securely, and I've not experience a single light leak. Fantastic design, fantastic price.

                Comments about Redrock Micro Nikon F to Canon EF Lens Mount Adapter:

                Have purchased several different lens adaptors - all are pretty poor - Some don't like going on Canon C100 / C300 sometimes - or they don't focus to infinity as the adaptors are too thick - and the lens always moves when u change focus... This RedRock Micro one screws onto the lens... is thin so I'm sure will focus to infinity - doesnt really move once on the lens (still a tiny bit of movement) but more solid than others - doesnt move the lens when u turn focus barrel - its the best adaptor I've seen for the price - only thing that might be better is the $ adaptor - i think this is the best buy

                    I own a BMCC and 3 zeiss .zf lenses (21mm, 35mm, 50mm). I'm not sure how well they fit on nikon glass, but they are terrible on my Zeiss ones. The adapter comes loose from the lens almost immediately, and the screws put SUBSTANTIAL damage on my lenses. Do not use these adapters at all.

                        This is the ONLY adapter out there that has zero play between it and every lens. Even my $200 Nova adapter has play.

                        This is the only adapter I would ever suggest for video use, because play when shooting video results in jarring video shift that is just plain ugly.

                        I had another adapter which actually works even better.
                        The way you have to screw down makes it impossible to swap lens on the go. Also it had worse fitting for my old 85 1.4 ai-s. Granted it's an old lens, so that might be why it didn't fit.
                        I just expected better and did not received the fit i needed.
                        Too loose and there was too much movement.

                        Decent build but the screw sets are just nutty. Tiny little allen wrenches (that you'll never find again) mean that these adapters are on to stay. It works for me now but as I look at this old nikon glass that I have them on I realize that I may want to use the lenses for other video purposes like the new metabones for BMCC.
                        For something so simple it would seem easy, but of course it isn't.
                        For my dough find an adaptor that goes on and off more easily.

                        This is easily the most solid Nikon to Canon EF mount adapter available, for a great price too.

                        The included screws give a completely play free connection between the lens and the camera.

                        Top notch quality from RedRock Micro as always.

                        I bought an Canon EF mount adapter for my Nikon lens so that I could use it on my Canon C100 and 60D or video. My old adapter was made by Bower and it had a lot of play which I hated. When I saw the Red Rock Micro adapter I though... I'll give it a shot since they make some great gear. I wasn't disappointed.

                        There are 4 very small allen head screws that come with the adapter to lock it onto the lens. The micro allen wrench also comes with it. You snug then down and are good to go. No sloppy play! I plan to look for more Nikkor lenses and use these adapters. Get one!
