    I'll start off by saying I'm fairly new to this type of photography. I recently purchased a Canon FT QL 35mm SLR camera on ebay and I have a question or two about it I was hoping someone here could help me with. It appears the standard lens on this camera is a canon FL mount lens, although I have seen photos of this type of camera with a canon FD mount lens. Now, does anyone happen to know if this type of camera uses both the FD and FL mount lenses? Any help here would be appreciated. I searched and searched through other threads to no avail. Thanks in advance!

    OK I did a little more research this afternoon and on a wikipedia page about Canon FL mount cameras it says this...

    "FL lenses can also be used on FD-mount cameras."

    Here's a link...
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_FL

    Now...does this mean that the lenses will work vice versa? Meaning that the FD lenses work with the FL? Anyone got a clue out there?
