    Lens questions!

    Do you guys think a Nikon Micro-Nikkor - Macro lens - 105 mm - f/2.8 G ED-IF AF-S VR - Nikon F, would fit on a Canon Digital Rebel XTi 10.1MP DSLR? I know that the lens is EXPENSIVE, but I dont plan on buying it YET, I have to save up the money first, but This is a lens I would LOVE to have. But I dont want a Nikon! OR do you guys know of any Cannon DSLR lens's similar to the Nikon Micro, around the same price or cheaper??

    Thanks.

    Canon's elite lenses are certainly equal to Nikon's. And Canon's garbage is equal to Nikon's garbage too. Both make plenty of that. Canon's best are the L lenses and I doubt I'll ever have one. Here's a review of a Canon that supposedly is as good as an L and should do whatever that Nikon can. It isn't a DSLR lens, but even though I've heard of such things, I don't understand what's different about them. We use Canon EF lenses on our film & digital Canons.

    Ooops . . . I just read the whole review and it isn't a USM lens, which means it'll be a pain in the *** to use a lot of the time. Canon has probably replaced it with a USM by now. That just refer to the auto-focus drive and the pre-USM drives suck.

    If you have a Canon body why not get a Canon macro? The best true macro lens from Canon is the MP-E65 f2.8 1-5x Macro. It can only be used for close-up photography but that's why you're buying it isn't it? This is the lens I'd buy. It ain't cheap $800-850,

    Unless things have changed more than I imagine - No.
