Re: Minolta MD much easier to use with adapter, IMHO
In reply to zxaar, Mar 6, 2013

I've personally found the Minolta MD experience with an adapter on MFT to be MUCH easier than with a Canon FD.   As I've reported in other posts, the Canon experience is best described by me to be "fiddly", i.e., never sure if its locked on the adapter right.  So I gave up on that, even though I still had some FD lenses from my film days, and switched to using Minolta MDs which don't have that problem at all.  Its a quick one step twist and click and you're done.

And to me the lens quality including construction is just as good.

Hope this helps!
