I have the Canon FD50mm F1.4 and the Canon FD 135mmF2.5, and a FD-MFT adapter. I don't use them a lot as the situation they are useful in is low light and wide open, and then focusing is tricky and time consuming. For the FD 50mm to be really sharp, I need to stop it down, in which case I may as well use my Panny 35-100 F2.8

I purchased an FD bellows and FD reverse adaptor, intending to use the FD 50mm  for macro photography, but haven't had the time to pursue that yet.
