Yes, the Nikons work well for video on the Canon DSLR (I use the 7D) but be aware, the old Nikon (Nikkor) primes, with some of them anyway, the focus ring on the lens moves back and forth a little while focusing which can be a pain if you are using a follow focus.

You will need a Nikon to Canon-EOS adapter, and I would suggest one adapter for each Nikkor lens you have as they are sometimes difficult to get back off the lens. Just have one for each and it will work well for lens changes on set. Keeps everything simple.

I found these on ebay ($14.95 each):
I ordered 5 of them, one for each lens and they work great.

Hope this helps.
