When did Canon stop using Nikon lenses?

    Apparently, they used Nikon lenses right after Canon was formed?

    Nikon made Leica screw mount lenses for a while, think they stopped in
    the early '60s. Canon had their own lenses but they used the Leica
    mount, though the Canon has some differences, a fraction of a
    millimeter difference in mount to film difference. So this is where it
    may seem that Canons used Nikon lenses. I have a 1959 Nikon 85mm f2 I
    still use, on a Leica M2 know the date because I bought it from the
    original owner.
