    When FD lenses are off the Canon body the aperture rings don't function. Is the a m4/3 FD adapter that restores aperture usage.

    Yep. You'll notice the adapter integrates an aperture ring.

    Now I can try the FDs out.

    That's great. Thanks for the info. Most of my primes are redundant of my Nikkor lenses, but there is a sweet f/2 28mm I will compare against a Nikkor 2.8/24mm.

    The aperature rings work just fine off the body. You just need to know how to do it. There are two little holes with little tabs sticking out of them. Push the tabs down and then rotate the mount to the locked position. The aperature ring will work just fine then. I've gotten a ton of cheap FD lenses from people who think the aperature is broken.
