Anybody found any wide lenses That'll fit either natively on a Nikon or can be adapter to a Nikon?
Any F mount nikon lens will fit a nikon DSLR. One thing to watch out for is there's a small, moving tab right above the lens mount on some DSLRs that fits in the aperture ring. Many old nikon lenses have a correspondingly notched aperture ring that works fine on the camera and tells the camera what the f-stop is, but some older Nikkors have an aperture ring that's a single depth all the way around. These can be modified fairly easily by removing the aperture ring and filing out a section to fit. I have done this successfully as shown:
my Nikkor 85mm (first pic) has the factory aperture ring which is compatible with modern DSLRs (ex. D7000) aperture tab. The second picture of my 135mm shows the notch I filed in to the uniform-depth "scallop shell" aperture ring so it would fit on my camera.
Another thing to keep in mind are that these older Nikon lenses are full-frame lenses, (designed for 35mm SLR cameras), so on a crop-sensor DSLR, their focal length is magnified by roughly 1.5x (50mm= 75mm) and the maximum aperture will be about a stop larger.
This is extra fun if you are lucky enough to have both a full frame and a crop sensor DSLR, as you essentially have two sets of lenses in one.
