Is there an adapter to connect a Canon EF lens to the 420C?

There are many T thread to EOS adapters available.  Some excellent (and very expensive) and some adequate and reasonably priced.  Some suggestions:

I all depends where in the world you are located.  European products in US/Canada are darned expensive after S&H and duty!!

Good luck

Hi,

I agree with Konihlav, i own the same one and it is simply a nice part! Perhaps not as cheap as other adapters but you will use it for a long time without wearing it out!

As said here already, there are a lot of options you could go for when choosing for an adapter for the EOS lens to the 420C.  There are cheaper ones but I was kind of hesitant with making the purchase actually as I have not been able to read that much of reviews about them.  But there sure are a good list of available options you could go for anyway.  Just pick the one that you would likely consider to keep up.
