Samyang lenses for a Nikon D5200?

I have a set of Samyang (also called rokinon) lenses that have a mount for Canon camera's, does anyone know if there is an existing adapter which would allow me to add these lenses to the Nikon D5200?

I have read about the problem with canon vs nikon is that the lenses are closer to the sensor so you can't focus at infinity and then there also the fact that a canon lens cannot communicate with the camera body.

How would this work out with the samyang lenses that have a canon mount, is there no adapter available to fit these onto the Nikon? Exposure and focus should not be an issue since that is always manual on the lens or would it have an effect on infinity focus?

You can put Nikon lenses on a Canon camera with an adaptor, but not the other way around.

Thx chuck, I had a feeling that was the case.

I was thinking to replace one of my 550d's with a d5200 as it seems to lack moire and aliasing in video mode which is especially obvious on wideangle lenzes on my canon, might as well get another samyang lens but then one with a nikon mount which I could use on my canon's with an adapter as well (right?). I read that samyang has a 10mm f2.8 now which might be a good match for steadicam work.
