Product Description

The Fotodiox FD-EOS Lens adapter allows you to place your favorite Canon FD/FL lens on your Canon EOS body. This adapter gives you the ability to use your irreplaceable prime lens and saves you the cost of purchasing new lenses. The adapters are precision made to insure the perfect fit. The lens will fit physically, but the automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, and other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case, "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering, since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot in manual or aperture priority mode. Infinity focusing is guaranteed.

This product works GREAT and is very well built!
Mr. MovieMaker
Works great, a little tricky to use at first, but once you have it on it fits and does wonders. love being able to use old lenses!
Sam
Like others said, it takes a bit of experimentation to get the setting on your camera that works best with the lens.

I purchased this adapter in the hopes it would allow me to use my FD glass on my EOS 5D until I could afford equivalent EF lenses. I used it with my FD 50mm f1.4, FD 135mm f2.5 SC lenses and did some experimenting with a 400mm f6.3 T-Mount lens.

Here are some of my conclusions:
1) The adapter's lens diameter is too small for a full frame camera like the 5D. This leads to vignetting which would be a problem if you try to use the image out to the edge. It was not as noticeable with the 135mm lens as it was with the 50mm or 400mm. Note that this may not be an issue with crop sensor cameras. I wonder if the this problem could be fixed by increasing the adapter's lens diameter.
2) The experiment with the 400mm lens was to remove the adapter's lens and use it as an extension tube to improve the close focus of that particular lens. I would not recommend doing that since the adapter lens does not come out as one piece - so you have to be very careful to remember how to re-assemble it. Vignetting with the 400 was very bad.
3) Performance was acceptable with the 135, effectively making it about a 216mm f3.2 lens. Stopping down improves sharpness and depth of field, especially if you center your subject.
4) I found the manual aperture control convenient to operate. Just like using manual lenses on my old F1. You just have to remember to use it. :)

I think I got what I paid for. This is essentially a teleconverter, which have never been known to improve an optical system, but I've experimented with it enough to know it's limitations and in which situations I should use it.

Bottom line - I'll keep this adapter in the gadget bag to use with my FD 135mm f2.5 until my budget will let me get an EF lens that covers that range. I may even saddle it up with the FD 50mm f1.4 sometimes for "macro" work.

The adapter does what it says it does. Yes you lose a little detail because of the extra glass piece. I have 4 FD lenses that I can now use with my Canon 60D. Believe it or not, when I shoot in video mode I love the way the video looks when I use this adapter. It has a slight movie-like faint blur. It's a good effect. If you are looking to take really crisp pictures, you might not want to purchase. Don't get me wrong though, the pictures still look really good. You just lose a little detail. Hope this review helps with your decision.

After having used a Canon AE-1 since early 1980s, I finally bought my first DSLR - EOS Rebel T3. The camera came with kit lens EF-S 18-55 mm F3.8-5.6 IS II. After using this lens for a few days, I missed the old 50mm and after some research bought the FD 50mm F1.8. At this point I realized that a 50mm on my old camera is not the the same as a 50mm on the DSLR.

That is when I thought about my old lens. I have three FD Lenses - 28mm F2.8, 50mm F1.4 and 135mm F2.8. I wanted to use them in my new camera and after some days of reading reviews of different converters picked this one. Did not really expect much from it but wanted to give it a try just to see what would happen. I was just curious I guess and wanted to see if I could avoid spending money I did not have for a few other lenses.

Like others who have used it, I too found it difficult to understand at first and had difficulty attaching it to the FD lenses but no difficulty attaching it to the Camera. I took some really bad pictures at first untill I found the little ring on the converter that turns. This find made a big difference. After turning the ring on the converter clockwise, I found that I could control the aperture. Then I used the full auto function in the camera, used the FD lens at F4 or F5.6 and shot pictures in a dimly lit room. The pictures turned out good.

Then under the same situation I took pictures of the same object with all my FD lenses and then with my EF 50mm and finally with the EF-S 18-55mm. With the EF-S lens I took three pictures at 18mm, 35mm and 55mm. I used full auto mode for all the pictures. With the FD lens I used F4 for 28mm and 135mm and F5.6 for 50mm. I compared all the pictures side by side and did not find much of a difference.

Having a few older canon FD mount lenses from 30 years ago, I wanted to play with them on my 500d. This adapter worked perfectly for doing that. It fills a hole. It was exactly the one pictured on the web site, no substitutions.

There is no problem with the adapter, however there are a few things to be said when using it.

1. Watch out with non-canon lenses. I have a phoenix-samyang 500mm zoom that I tried it with, It worked, but the clearance was a little tight, and doesnt lock down all the way. I had a lentar 80-200mm zoom, and I had to remove the stop screw from the locking ring and back it off a notch. Now when I mount the lens, the whole lens wants to turn, not just the locking ring. I put it away, not intending on using it again. There were NO problems with my canon 50mm prime lens. In fact, it looks pretty good. I have another off-brand 28mm lens, which also works well.

2. Pay attention to the lock-open indicator when attaching the lens. It must be in the "open" position, otherwise the peg that controls the aperture lever in the lens is on the wrong side. I find it easiest to mount the adapter to the lens, then put the lens on the camera.

3. If I were intending on using a bunch of old lenses with my 500d, I would probably buy one adapter for each lens. Its a pain to switch back and forth quickly. Right now I either use the 50mm, or the 500mm, but Im not in a position where I need to switch back and forth all that much. I use either one pretty sparingly.

4. It confuses the light meter. Of course you find yourself shooting all manual with these, since focus and aperture are manual.
