Hi everyone, I have a Canon FD-M4/3 K&F adapter (orange ring). But I am noticing a problem: when I put the adapter in the "open" position (it has an "open / lock" switch) I have to make many attempts before I can obtain closing diaphragms of my canon FD. If it is not connected well it always stays on opening 1.4. Yet I think K&F is one of the best, but maybe I'm wrong. I don't know if this is a common problem for all FD adapters and lenses. What do you think I should do? That way I spend more time finding the right connection than taking pictures ...

I also found it depends on which lens you are trying to adapt; the operation could be slightly different. It could be tricky. I've been there as a previous non-Canon FD/FL shooter; it is frustrating to mount FD/FL lenses onto an adapter. But once you get the hang of it, it then will be fine.
