Okay, so I got my FD to EOS adapter.
It's the newer version with removable element/optic.
Good news is, I can now use this ancient FD 135/2 lens with my 50D.
The adapter, with the element, allows proper focusing up to infinity - but with a multiplier factor and reduced clarity - the element doesn't seem to affect f-stops that much
The adapter, with the element removed, won't allow infinity focus - but the images are really sharp - so sharp, that I was able to see the surface texture of the test object.
Bad news is, with or without the element, it's impossible to take any hand-held shots.
I went all the way to ISO 3200, just trying to get a steady hand-held shot.
Even if I paid to get it converted to EOS rear-end, I just couldn't see how I could use it to take any portrait shots.
I think I'm going to sell this fantastic lens to Micro four third owners :_(
I can't understand how you can't get a sharp photo unless you are photographing moving subjects. I have one that I converted myself and although it can be difficult to focus under certain conditions it can also produce some beautiful sharp images even hand-held. Do you have much experience with manual focus lenses?
