Re: Canon FD adapter: K&F issues

FD adapters seem to have the most issues. The lock - open switch is very confusing for new users. Be sure to mount the lens with the "Lock" text aligned to the red index dot on the lens. This is true for both breech lock and FDn bayonet hybrid mount. Once mounted, turn the Lock-Open ring towards "Lock". The "open" text should now be somewhat lined up to the red dot (breech mount), as shown below.

Other issues may be that some third party lenses have slightly longer or thicker stop down levers making it bind.

This is a photo of the adapter in the correct position have it has been properly mounted.
