Suggest best m4/3 only to bring my FD lenes to life
Nov 1, 2012

Hello all,

I have a Canon 50mm f1.8 and Lenmar (Canon FD mount) 80-200mm F3.5 lenses. I loved those since my Canon AE-1 Program days. I still have those lenses and they are in very good condition.

I do not want ta bulky DSLR. Most of the time I shoot people and almost never enlarge photos larger that 8 x 10.

Kindly suggest a good micro 4/3 camera (body only) with a suitable adapter that will let me use my FD lenses again. I will be happy if low light performance is good and thrilled if great.

Since FD lenses do not have any built in image stabilization, will a camera with an image stabilization built in the body be preferred?

Chances are that I will use this body for my FD lenses only.

Thanks in advance and regards,
