The down side of most Canon FD lenses, is that they're a bit tricky to mount on adapters (adapter needs to be set to Open when mounting and Lock when in use). If you forget to Lock it, the aperture will stay wide open regardless of how it's set.

Because they're so cheap ($10-20 on eBay), I'd follow the advice of a poster on here from awhile ago and just buy an adapter for each lens you plan on using. I only have a 50 1.4 presently but am contemplating my next and will probably get a second adapter for it. They are fiddly PITAs, you're right about that.
