Who uses FD lenses on their m4/3 camera?
Sep 10, 2009

I'm considering getting a m4/3 camera for my first step up from P&S on the digital side. I have a number of film cameras and my SLR stuff is all Canon FD mount (AE-1 and AT-1 cameras). I haven't selected a camera yet - the GF1, E-P1 and GH1 are all interesting to me, I expect that my daily lens will likely be something new that does AF and that any use of older lenses will be for photography fun.

I had heard bad things about adapters with optics in them, but then found a couple of posts here showing some very sharp pics with FD lenses on m4/3 cameras.

I've got some of the typical stuff - 50mm in both 1.8 and 1.4, 28/2.8, 135/3.5, 90/2.8 macro, 35-70, 70-210.

Let me know if it has worked well for you and where you got your adapter. Thanks.
