Nikon lenses on camcorders ?


This is kinda of a way out there question. I'm wondering if
any camcorders at any price level can use Nikkor lenses.
I probably should have invested in a Canon digital camera
with Canon lenses, but I got caught up in the Nikon D70 and
just kept on going to buy a 70-200mm VR lens.

Canon XL1(s) and possibly the new XL2(?) when it becomes available, have Nikkor adapters available.

Century optics makes an adapter for the Sony Pro cameras to use Nikon lenses. You won't find it on their web site, you have to call them.
