I ordered both adapters from Amazon.Com and recieved the CZFDEOSA from Adorama and a product marked Kipon FD-EOS from 47th ST Camera. The Kipon product is excellent. Unfortunately it can easily be mis-used for three reasons. 1) It is high precision and fits the EOS body very tight. It must be turned until it "clicks", which takes more than the expected force. 2) The adapter lens mount allows the adapter lens to be easily removed, and might be positioned out of range of focus. There is no lens stop, which is good since I can adjust to match the exact point of infinity on the lens. The position seems to be the same for all my FD lenses. 3) The product would benefit from some instructions even though they are obvious to many users. I made a number of disappointing shots until I got everything set right. I currently leave the adapter on my 50D body and I only use FD lenses.
I find I must check that the FD lens aperature ring is not set on A (automatic). We will be setting the aperature manually. The EOS camera is set to AE so only the shutter speed changes with metering. We manually adjust the aperature and ISO settings to get the depth of field and shutter speed we want.
My most common error is that the lens aperature is not stopping down because the adapter is not in the "Lock" position. All is well if I start mounting the lens with the adapter set to "Open", set the lens to manual wide open, mount the lens on the camera and then set the adapter to "Lock" position.Read more ›
As might be expected, the corrective lens is not high quality, but then again it doesn't claim to be. Quality of pictures is hit or miss. Some of them do come out soft (in some cases 'misty', or with a bright aura), but other times I can't tell the difference from those taken with an EF lens. I've taken a lot of good pictures with this adapter.
In the end, it's good for playing around with your old FD lenses, but probably not a replacement for EF-dedicated lenses.
So, don't get this expecting tack sharp photos at your FD lens' widest apertures. Stop it up 2 or more times and your pictures will be as clear as any EF lens.
Don't know if this was the adapter or the lens, but I get this foggy dream like quality to a lot of my shots set against direct sunlight. I don't get this with my old Canon 35MM so I assume it's the adapter's lens compensating for the increased lens registry range.
Basically whether or not you get this product comes down to whether or not you want to spend $40 or so dollars to use the lenses you already have, or whether or not you want to drop $1,300 on one of those EOS bad boy lenses. Choose your path.
Well packaging is minimal and there are no instructions, but its very intuitive to use, just remember to lock it once the lens is one. You can tell it is locked when the viewfinder darkens or brightens as you turn the aperture setting on your FD lens.
I was worried at first because some of the pictures i took looked "soft" and the light in my photos looked foggy as some people have mentioned here. HOWEVER, this is easily remedied by adjusting your settings! Since there's no AF (autofocus) on your old FD lenses, sometimes you can be a tad bit out of focus. Since it is difficult sometimes, to check for pure clarity on the viewfinder and the LCD screen preview, it can seem as if you are in focus when you really are not and that can cause the "soft" light effect. Sometimes, the solution is changing your aperture, lens speed, or iso. Depends on the case. After screwing around with my lenses, I have a pretty good sense of what needs to be adjusted.
That being said, the FD lenses aren't all that great at taking photos in low light situations. Since as of yet I have not been able to use the FD lenses on the original camera they were meant for and compare the photos, I cannot tell you if this deficiency is because of the adapter or the lenses themselves. Whatever the case, you really need to screw with your ISO in low light situations to get anything decent as the noise can be pretty bad.
All in all this is a great buy. If you can manage to score some FD lenses on ebay i would definitely suggest doing it. Still, is it worth it to invest in new lenses, DEFINITELY. But, if you can learn to use this adapter properly, then you can get some great photos. Good luck
