    Greets all, I have a Canon 450d and I would like to buy/find a converter in order to run this lense on the body, can someone suggest what i need to get?
    This old lense was used on a old Canon camera my Dad used to own..

    The lense is : Super cosina 100-300
    The small (macro?) adapter says: kenko 2x apk teleplus mc4

    Any suggestions or know if its even possible.
    TIA.
    Hank

    Actually...

    Canon's old mount (the "FD" mount) is one of the very few lenses for which there aren't converters. It has to do with sensor/film to flange distance. There are a couple really obscure mounts that nobody bothers to make converters for, but the FD is... *I think* the only one where it's impossible.

    That is not an C/FD lens, the bayonet is all sorts of wrong, it looks almost like an M/MD.

    I do confess that I dunno what the FD mount even looks like, so I would of course defer to you, the FD holiness of TPF on this.

    So I guess that

    isn't an old Canon at all...

    Yeah, I shoot the FD mount, I would be happy to take some shots tomorrow to show the different mounts of the Canon FD series, I have them both.

    Also, I could be wrong on the mount that is on that lens, I do have it on some of my other lenses. It is either a Minolta MD or Olympus OM, But I would have to check. Sadly I do not have them with me at this time. I will know for sure tomorrow.

    Aditionally, I do believe that is a 2X teleconverter, not an adapter.

    Yup, that's a teleconverter. Now that I look at it, could "mc4" signify the MC mount, which is the same as the SR mount, which is the same as the MD mount, which is the same as the X-600 mount?
    Actually the differences between the lenses branded like that are, and I copy and paste:

    (side note: that X-600 feature sounds kinda interesting.)

    The physical lens mounts are the same though. I think it's... *that* mount. The minolta manual focus SR-MC-MD-X600 mount.

    I do not know, it seems possible. To be honest I have often wondered and never found an answer to what the second numbers on my TCs are. My C/FD Vivitar TC is a 2X - 4 and my O/OM Vivitar TC is 2X - 2. I assumed it was optimal max apriture compatibility (I.E. 2X - 4 on 5.6 lens results in dark viewfinder and focusing issues), but I could be wrong.

    Yes, the FD to EF adapter was available, but they where not known to be of great quality, including the Canon ones. I did not go into that because this lens is not C/FD, such an adapter is of no use to this individual.

    Additionally, it is infact a Minolta mounting lens.
