I am not sure if you want to go the adapter round for Canon lens to Nikon. We have one guy here in the office trying that last year, paying like €200 for a special made and ending up not using it. Funny that many Nikon lens can be used on Canon camera though.
I contacted Fotodiox who I've been buying my adapters from and this is what they said....
"We do not make this adapter for two reasons,
1. it will not focus properly,
2. Aperture can’t be adjusted for EF lens through Nikon body."
They make "chipped" adapters to make the Nikon lens focus and a little dial on the side to adjust aperture on the Canon body. I guess the tech is simply not possible the other way around.
Now I'll have to figure out which lens to get for it. Another option is sell my Canon lenses (someone is already interested in my 70-200) and get the adapter to make the Nikon lens work on the 7D.
