I started considering to buy Micro Nikkor 55mm f3.5 or f2.8 for my Canon 5D Mark2. But I wanted to ask this question at first. When using with the lens adapter to Canon, is any of these lenses still able to do Auto focus? I don't know much about these lenses. May be one of them is a full time manual focus lens? But I hope they at least do the focus validation red light in front of the lens (even with the adapter)

These are MF only lenses. They will meter stopped down. You can get focus confirmation with a "chipped" adapter.

Thanks for the reply. I would like to clarify some more. What do you mean by They will meter stopped down? Does it mean, when you attach this lens, the camera's light meter works differently? And what is the "CHIPPED" adapter?
Sorry, my knowledge in photography is limited.
