    So I have 8 FD lenses which I use on my Canon AE-1, and soon I will be purchasing a device like this.


    If anyone owns one of these I would be very interested in knowing if the pictures come out okay, or if there is any noticeable loss of quality.

    Thanks James

    I have one of those only use it for my T/S lens. You can not focus at infinity when you use that adapter

    Welcome to the forum.

    Several similar questions have been asked about FD to EOS adapters. Try a search and you should turn up some good info.

    From all that I've ever heard...unless you have a good adapter (made by Canon) and some really good FD glass...it's just not worth the hassle.

    Okay, thanks to both of you. I''ll go check out other threads, and your probably right mike, after-market glass probably isn't worth buying, but my only other option is an authentic Canon adapter which is a bit pricey. I'll probably just end up buying it just to see if its worth it.
