$140 for the adapter. Made by 16:9 - it is for "G" type Nikon lenses to be used on Canon digital bodies. One loses AF and metering but if you can work manually on a Canon body you will have no problems.

This is version 2 of the adapter - see description here:

Here are some images in IR from Central Park - a few in this folder were taken with the 14-24 Nikkor on a converted (to IR) Canon 5Dii body - using this adapter:
A description of Version 2 of the adapter from the web site (16:9) linked to above:

"The V2 was more complicated, much more robust and far nicer to use, but also more expensive and again bedevilled by supply problems involving manufacturers in three (sometimes four) different countries, and time-consuming local production. We couldn't make them fast enough to keep pace with demand, and waiting times were long."

"So we approached Novoflex in Germany (who we believe make the world's finest adapters) with a view to manufacturing the V2 entirely bespoke, from the ground up, and so the V3 was born. Version 3 is everything we wanted from the adapter in the beginning: not least: no more supply problems, no more time consuming modifications, no more waiting lists. And we were able to improve machining quality still further, provide a more easily understood scale for aperture control, seamless backward compatibility with Nikon F lenses, and minimize needed lens modification."

Version 2 is pretty much identical to Version 3... (my words not theirs just to be clear); there had to be a Version 3 because the product was sold to a larger company (Novoflex)
