Yeah i'm talking about old nikon lens on modern nikon FX body, ignore my comments.

However, since you are into video, this is a good read for you:

http://www.danmccomb...n-a-canon-dslr/

"I recently took the plunge into DSLR cinematography by purchasing an $800 Canon T2i. If you scoff at the idea that video shot on a consumer grade Rebel can be taken serious by pros, I look forward to showing you some of the video I’ve been shooting. I’ll post a proper review of how this unpretentious game-changer is working for me in my documentary work soon. But today I want to talk about lenses."

It basically talks on use of adapters and whatnot.


Good Read, but I'll probably look into the adapters and new lenses in the future. I'm still not sure about having the adapters permanently stuck on the lens.. :s

Naw you don't need adapters unless you plan on buying a buttload of nikon lens to use on your canon :p, i found that link searching for "nikon lens on canon bodies" and since it was related to video I thought it would be relevant to your future endeavors.

I would avoid the T2i for video; I have this camera and it cannot always record more then several minutes worth of video; you get a warning message about heat and the camera turns off. Although on good days I've recorded up to 20 min or so. I've contacted Canon and was told it's by design; WTF?

Just do a Google search on the issue and you'll find plenty of people having the same issue. I'm surprised there hasn't been an out cry over this issue, as I see it as an unacceptable design flaw.

That wasn't a post on the t2i, but rather nikon lens on canon bodies and the adapters needed for that to happen, the OP is considerig a 5d MKIII, though thanks for the heads up, the more information, the better. :D

5D MKII and spend the difference from the MKIII on decent lenses. Kit lenses are usually crap in the long run.


The Kit lens is still an L lens on the 5d.



I just finished a wedding this weekend as a photographer. There was a videographer there using the 7d for video. Why not do that and save a grand on lens. He had a 7d was using the 70-200, a tilt shift lens and the 24mm and 35mm.

It's what i've been saying all along with the 6d, which is still full frame.

The 6D doesn't have a headphone jack and certain little things that can probably help me on shoots. So is that deal I posted worth it?

I also went to Camera Canada and their price just the Mkiii w/ lens was $3,799.97. So I added the Rhode Mic and it was already 4069.96. I think so for Aden Camera has the best deal. It's got everything I need, a LED panel, a Rhode Mic (which I will need anyway in the future). What do you guys think?

just make sure the LED panel isn't a cheap knock off.
