EX3 and Nikon lenses

Looking at the EX3 for wildlife, but want to use my Nikon lenses for the increased FOV/Mag. Ratio. I believe the 1/2" sensor will offer a 5.5x magnification ratio using 35mm lenses. Any thoughts on this strategy: use the 1/2-inch Type Lens Mount Adapter that is supplied with the EX3 and then mount a Century Optics Nikon Lens 1/2 in. Bayonet Mount Adapter on that. I can then mount the Nikon lenses on that. I don't know of any other way to do this. What do you guys think?
