I have three Tamron Nikkor-mount AF lenses from my old Nikon camera. I just got a Canon Rebel XTi, and I would like to know if there are any adapters out there that would allow me to use my Tamron lenses with the Canon camera.

Thank you

Google "Nikkor Canon adapter" and find many solutions. Manual focus and exposure however.

And NO there are no Canon Nikkor adapters for mechanical reasons.

If the Tamron lenses have Adaptall 2 mounts for the nikon, then it's possible thatyouMAY be able to find Adaptall 2 mounts for a Canon to reuse the lenses.



I'm not sure if it WILL work, but it might.

Adaptall lenses have interchangable camera mounts because of a special connector on the lens. In essence the last few centimeters of the lens at the mount end is replacable. This allows the Adaptall to adjust for different distance from the flange to the sensor or film plane and the physical mount structure.

This would not work for a non-Adaptall lens because the mount is fixed for a certain model.

Nikon lenses will mount on a Canon, but not in reverse, because of the size of the mount and the distance from the flange to the sensor or film plane.

There is another forum that I noticed one of the users has a 5D and uses nikkor lenses.
