Nikon lenses with aperture rings (non-“G” lenses) can be used on the EOS 5D using a lens adapter, but don’t make the mistake of getting a cheap knock-off; I tried one brand and found that the “anodization” was black paint that scuffed off easily, getting into the mirror box. Another brand would not release, and had to be destructively removed.
There are also specialty electronic “chipped” lens adapters for Nikoin “G” lenses, but I’m not a fan, because there is no precise aperture control, more things to fail, etc.
Nikon lenses that are of particularly good performance are included on the Canon lens pages, since there should be no bias against using the best possible optics, regardless of brand. Those serious about infrared will want to use the best possible lens.
