What kind of converter for FD do you use?

Any cheap Chinese adapter will do. This lens is very robust. I guess it has no floating elements, and therefore it is absolutely indifferent to the adapter flange distance tolerance: too far or to close -- you compensate it with a helicoid. As long as it reaches infinity (pretty much all adapters do, some focus further beyond infinity than others) -- you are fine. Around $50 lens (and an outstandingly sharp lens at that, even in the corners) for ~$50 plus ~$15 for an adapter.

As an autofocus option. Sigma 30 mm f/2.8 is very good. After removing the rear baffle, ~90% of the image is usable after software vignetting correction. That makes it approximately equivalent to 35 f/3.2 lens.
