First off can you give more specifics? Are you using FD mount bodies, EOS SLRs or DSLRs, etc.

I use an old Nikon 800/5.6 so may be able to help some. At first I was using it adapted on my EOS DSLRs and getting good results. So according to your situation, this may be an option for you also.


All of these are the Nikon 800/5.6 on EOS bodies.


Very fine shots.

My feeling is that with a genuine FD-EOS converter one could get excellent service out of FD 800L + some FL extension as well. I believe the converter acts as a 1.26xTC or something like that. Almost one stop aperture loss though.

Good condition FD-EOS converters pop up on eBay occasionally......typically $700 to $1,000. Yet, that one time investment opens up your access to a whole slew of good and inexpensive FD telephoto lenses.
So if manual focusing is your thing, go for it.
