I've got Canon L IQ for under $100…well maybe…with an adapter I'm using my old Nikkor primes (24/2.8, 85/2, 135/2.8, 200/4) on my 10D.

Yes, you have to focus yourself, and the aperture is manual, but they are so bright thru my 10D that even stopped down a click or 2 is still easy to focus.

This is my new 70's version of the 300/4.5 nikkor and is the cheapest one out there (fleabayed for <$100 with adapter I can use with my other Nikkors)...it came AI modified, but that isn't needed on the Canon adapter...and the results are fine...a steal of a deal in fact

here's the full frame...a tripod would be better… and a 100% crop ( = to 16 x 24) isn't too bad for hand held either with no IS…30D/5D would be better yet, lower noise, higher shutter speed or more DoF @ higher ISO…

Since EOS Canon lenses have been around for 20 years, are there any adapters to allow usage of the older Canon lenses on an EOS body? If you are able to use Nikkor lenses, I had hopes of using my older Canon lenses made for the A-1 and T-90.

I've heard that the FD to DigiEOS conversion is major surgery...unlike the simplicity of using Nikkors...irony upon irony....they work on my $400 10D but not on the older Nikons...only the $1600D200 offers as much capability with them...

tho I had to remove the baffle from my 24 to fit...much like I had to do with the 18-55 kit...

24/2.8, 58/1.4 and a few other MF Nikkors will need a baffle removed to fit into the
EOS box…here're the pix…it worked for me, and fairly easily, on my 10D,
but of course, you work at your own peril…(esp. 5D users whose mirror may get in the way, so I've read)...
Good luck...and enjoy...btw...my 85/135/200/300mm nikkors work fine without modification...
tho the 135mm lenses' focus confirmation is a bit off the EOS LED
(on more than one 135, and diff. versions of it as well)

Here's the 24/2.8 that won't fit into the 10D box…much like the EF-S lenses won't and for the same reason...
that too-long baffle...
Note the set screws below the baffle coming into it from the side and through the mount.


Here's the baffle removed showing the 3 screws…note that 2 screws have a
conical head, and one has a "block" head…THIS IS THE ONE that goes into
the baffle ring from directly under the extended baffle as in the above right pic


Here's the lens with the EOS adapter and the baffle ring with the screws
back in place so I don't lose them…
Note that the baffle could be cut to fit and replaced, if so desired...which I guess it should to prevent dust getting in places no dust should go...
