Hello Forum.

I am wondering if any of you have knowledge of, or experience in, using classic NAI Nikkors on the Canon 5D, a full frame digital SLR, or on any other AF optimized EOS Canon for that matter.

I have ten Nikkors I would like to use on a digital body. I understand that the new Nikon bodies will NOT support and meter through my old NAI glass. I have read that via adapters, EOS cameras will work and meter with those wonderful old Nikkors.

But I wonder about focusing. Most AF cameras' screens are optimized for AF and make manual focusing difficult. I wonder how difficult it is with the 5D. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
