I was skeptical, since I wasn't happy with a cheaper Fotodiox version of Nikon to MFT. The Fotodiox PRO is the way to go. This adapter is very solid. I've mounted my Nikon 28-70/2.8 and 80-200/2.8 to my Canon 5D MkIII and the results have been rock solid.
Put the adapter on the lens and rotate until it locks in place. It's designed to stay on the lens, not the camera body. You need to push down on the small lever to release it and twist it off the lens. There were no instructions with mine.
So far, no wobble or play.
I considered the RedrockMicro, but it attaches with small screws. Good if you want a semi-permanent solution, but I use my lenses on different cameras, some with a Nikon mount. The Fotodiox Pro adapter allows me to be more versatile.

I feel really bad giving this product a bad rating because usually FotodioX makes great products on a budget, but I must.

The shiny lever that releases the lens can get stuck on the camera body, which results in being unable to remove the lens. Well you can, just needs to be forcibly twisted off which poses a risk to your camera's well being.

I guess you can just break off the lever in the first place, which will eliminate the risk entirely at the cost of not being able to lock the lens on the body. Which by the way, the locking mechanism doesn't always work.

I'd have given the product a 1-star rating if it wasn't for FotodioX' great warranty/exchange policy. I told them about the problem and they quickly helped me out and sent a couple replacements within the week. Splendid.

Just be careful when you use it. Unfortunately I can't recommend this product because of that problem.

      Comments about FotodioX Pro Lens Mount Adapter for Nikon F Lens to Canon EF Mount Camera:

      This does adapt a Nikon lens to a Canon (in this case, a Mark II). But it's hard to remove from the lens you are putting up, or worse when you are trying to switch lenses. Eventually, it broke. Not sure I'll replace it. Would prefer a sturdier adapter despite the bigger size and added length and weight.

          I just purchased a Canon Mark III 5D, but I have a stockpile of excellent Nikon lenses. This one simple adapter basically tripled my lens real estate. Screws easily onto the back of the lens.

            Fits snug and, unlike the Cinevate adapter that I gave up on, is not difficult to take off. Enables the use of a Zeiss 135mm f/2 that has an old-school aperture ring on a Nikon D810 and Canon 5Ds-r.

                              I bought this to replace a cheaper mount that i had purchased (that cheap one was loose and wiggly.)

                              This one, however, is a bit more pricey, but worth it. It still is a bit wiggly, but much better.

                              Thanks to the sales person who helped me.

                                  I purchased this adapter so that I could use my Nikon lenses with my new Canon 60Da camera. The adapter attaches securely to the lens and mounts correctly on the camera. The automatic focus does not work, nor does the automatic exposure. Since I am using this combination for astrophotography, I set these all manually anyway.

                                    I feel really bad giving this product a bad rating because usually FotodioX makes great products on a budget, but I must.

                                    The shiny lever that releases the lens can get stuck on the camera body, which results in being unable to remove the lens. Well you can, just needs to be forcibly twisted off which poses a risk to your camera's well being.

                                    I guess you can just break off the lever in the first place, which will eliminate the risk entirely at the cost of not being able to lock the lens on the body. Which by the way, the locking mechanism doesn't always work.

                                    I'd have given the product a 1-star rating if it wasn't for FotodioX' great warranty/exchange policy. I told them about the problem and they quickly helped me out and sent a couple replacements within the week. Splendid.

                                    Just be careful when you use it. Unfortunately I can't recommend this product because of that problem.

                                      Mounted a Nikon 80-200mm to our 7D DLSR an it fit like a glove. It attaches easily to this lens and others. Removes with little effort. A much better fitting product than the previous less expensive adapter we own.

                                          mounts easily, doesnt wiggle or flex meaning it can be used to hit focus every time.

                                          difficult to remove.

                                          This is the best adapter ring I used to date well built fits snug very little play. Using it to adapt my old Nikkor lens to my A7s via a Metabones adapter. Highly recommend.

                                              Comments about FotodioX Pro Lens Mount Adapter for Nikon F Lens to Canon EF Mount Camera:

                                              I was skeptical, since I wasn't happy with a cheaper Fotodiox version of Nikon to MFT. The Fotodiox PRO is the way to go. This adapter is very solid. I've mounted my Nikon 28-70/2.8 and 80-200/2.8 to my Canon 5D MkIII and the results have been rock solid.
                                              Put the adapter on the lens and rotate until it locks in place. It's designed to stay on the lens, not the camera body. You need to push down on the small lever to release it and twist it off the lens. There were no instructions with mine.
                                              So far, no wobble or play.
                                              I considered the RedrockMicro, but it attaches with small screws. Good if you want a semi-permanent solution, but I use my lenses on different cameras, some with a Nikon mount. The Fotodiox Pro adapter allows me to be more versatile.

                                                I was sitting on all these old lenses from some film cameras. I didnt want to sell them because I thought they might come in handy and, the amount offred by Calumet wasnt even half of what I paid. Once I got the Nikon F Pro lens adepter I was able to use every lens I own on my Canon digital.
