Lens adapter for Nikon lens to EOS body

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Photography Singapore : One Thread

Dear Mr. Wee I wonder if you can tell me wether I could buy an adapter for my Nikon 800mm F5.6 lens so I could use it on my EOS 5 body. I have an adapter but it is good only for short focal lenes. It causes vignetting on the final image if I use it with the 800mm lens. Would appreciate if you could advise me about the price also.

Is the Canon 100-400mm IS lens on sale in Singapore yet? What's the price? Thanks a lot.

I have been told that there such adapter are available but have never varified this. I guess you can get it from either DSO or Fotographix.
To date, I've not seen the 100-400 nor the EOS 3 on sale in Singapore.
It would be better that you address to everyone rather than directly to me. And I hope readers can be more active in this forum.

Both shops are in Singapore but I have not checked with them yet as I do not stay in Singapore George Chiew

The Canon EF 100-400 is available in Singapore. Cathay quoted me $2400+GST. You can get it cheaper at Fotoguide at Peninsula Plaza - around 100 bucks less. Make sure you get the lens hood, tripod mount and carrying case - they are supplied with the lens at no extra cost.

Seem like Mr Wee is not interested to help by saying "Direct the question to others in the forum". I do not know where DSO and Fotographic is, as I do not live in Singapore. But I think you can find in the telephone directory from SingTel.
