FD vs New FD
Oct 11, 2009

Hi, I'm an enthusiast on budget and I'm looking for 50mm lens. My choices are FD lenses. I'm sure some of you will tell me to go for EF 50mm f1.8 mkII. Well I had one and dropped it and its sitting pretty on my desk now.

I don't know much about fd lenses so I hope someone can share their knowledge. My question are>
1. Do FD and new FD share the same EF converter.

2. Older FD use S.C or S.S.C marks and those marks are gone on new FD. Which one is better, FD or new FD?
3. What is the best FD-EF converter in terms of price performance?
Thank you in advance
