glad you mentioned zhongyi, I bought one for use with exactly that lens fd 50mm 1.4, adapter fitted both body(nex 7 & 5n) & lens, but I was unable to turn focus ring to infinity because as you probably know the rear inner lens extends rearwards, & was touching the glass in the adapter this happened with 20mm,28mm, 35mm lenses it worked just fine with 100mm macro & 80-200mm zoom.did you have this problem ?.

regards keith.

I have the FD in f1.2 but have not tried it in the Zhongyi.  But I also have the FL in both models and also the f1.2 version.  They all fit in the Zhongyi as long as the aperture rod had a small flat filed into it.  There seemed no problem with the rear lens element which I know is right at the back of these lenses and quite vulnerable.  The RJ version is a quite different internal design and has a lot more room at the front of the adapter.
