If you have a point-and-shoot Canon camera, a Nikon lens will serve no use. This type of camera already has its own built-in lenses so an external attachment just won鈥檛 work. For those who are using an SLR or a digital SLR Canon camera there might be a chance that your handy Nikon lens just might fit with that camera.

Can I use Canon lenses on a Nikon DSLR?
These can be used on any Nikon DSLR and will always have autofocus. Camera and lens standards have changed and developed as new technologies have evolved. Camera gear, however, can last along time. Most lenses from the 90s will work on modern Canon cameras and some lenses from the 70s will work on Nikon cameras.
Are Nikon F-mount lenses compatible with Canon cameras?
Although these mounts support different Canon systems, they are all compatible with Nikon F-Mount lenses when using the correct adapter. The easiest method for determining which mount is on your Canon camera is to look for indicators on the lens mount itself.
What is the difference between canon and Nikon lenses?
In all Canon SLRs, this distance is 44mm. For Nikon, it鈥檚 46.5mm. Because the flange distance is greater in Nikon cameras than in Canon, there鈥檚 extra space (2.5mm) to add an adapter. Doing so enables you to use infinity focus in Nikon lenses.
What lenses can I use with my Nikon 1 camera?
Nikon 1 lenses can only be used with Nikon 1 cameras, although F-mount lenses can be used with an adapter. Any third-party lens designed for Nikon cameras will use the F-mount, though some might be designed just for DX cameras.
