Nikon F has a shorter flange distance than Canon EF so any adapted lens would not focus to infinity.

There are Canon EF to Nikon Z if that’s what you meant to ask (you are posting in the Z forum).

Fixed your typo.

(@OP, the answer is still correct though)

There are adaptors from canon EF to Nikon F, they have a element to correct for infinity focus which may affect image quality.

Wonder why you ask this (F Mount) question in the Z Mount forum.

Doh!  Thanks for the correction to keep things less confusing.

And thanks to cosmicnode for finding the optical converter - I wondered if one existed as I knew there were some for other similar cases like Canon FD to Canon EF.
