Any OLD ex Canon FL users in the group?
Mar 30, 2014

Well, you don't have to be old, but you DO need some familiarity with Canon FL!

I have some Canon FL series prime lenses (consumer grade - not Pro grade) from my my Canon FT-QL days and while I don't need their focal lengths, I wonder if they would add anything of value to my E-M10. It's been a long time since I've used them.

The FL series lens mount didn't lend itself to adaption to digital photography with Oly DSLRs, so they've been sitting idle for a LONG time. They seemed OK when I used them, but lens design technology has made steady improvements since the early 1960's Does anyone have an opinion if they are worth the cost of buying an m4/3s adapter?

The last time I looked (about 1.5 years ago) they didn't have any fungus on them. so I don't see why they wouldn't be functional, but are they worth the cost of an adapter at this point?
