You won't be able to use the lens like a telescope and focus on something. Wait until you get the adapter and then try it on the camera.

Even with the adapter you won't be able to focus it very easy without mounting it to a camera. BTW, this is a bad idea and you should abandon it before you waste any more money.

I don't know why folks buy a pretty nice upper level intermediate camera and then want to put crap glass on them.
