question

What adapter do I need to mount this lens (and the rest of the prime series) to a Canon 5D Mk III? Thanks!
Asked by: gianluca c.
I bought the FotodioX Pro Lens Mount Adapter for Nikon F lens to Canon EF-Mount camera so I could do the exact same thing you want to do. It works great, and that Nikon lens is one of my favorites. Just gotta have patience and get the manual focus right, especially wide open.

Is this lens compatible with Nikon D5600?
Asked by: Baes
Yes it is...just keep in mind that this is a manual focus lens. You can easily use it however in manual mode or Aperture priority for exposure. I personally love the older AUS lenses like these. I use on my Z6 which has focus peaking to assist with focus and it also has in camera image stabilizer for cleaner pictures. This lens will last you forever a d can also work on newer a d full frame cameras so it will continue to serve you well should you upgrade to a newer or higher end camera. If you can afford this lens then I highly recommend it...
