Re: Minolta MD much easier to use with adapter, IMHO

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!
