    I've heard of it being done but I've never seen it. On Friday I noticed this videographer using Nikon glass on his video camera. He was switching back and forth between the 17-35mm f/2.8 and the 80-200mm f/2.8. He also had a Nikon D300 on hand with some fisheye mounted that I couldn't make out.

    There is also a Red Rocks converter that is great for using primes on. My neighbor has one...it's pretty neat!
     
  3. That's good to know. I wonder which camera he's using? I have the same pelican case he's sitting on
     
  4. That's the nice thing with Canon glass, being able to use your glass on Canon video cameras.

    Nikon should go video! :wink:

    and make copy machines too...hahaha!

    I am lusting after the Red One cinema body, which can be used with Nikkor lenses. $17,500 but ultra high definition. I understand it is a relative bargain, in those circles.
