    Hey there people,

    I had a quick question, today i was going to a shop to buy the FD to EOS adapter since i have a good range of FD lenses anyhow i only had my 7.5mm on me and it wouldn't mount on the adapter and i had noticed that the lens has no aperture lever while the adapter has one, so i'm guessing other lenses will mount but this lens in particular won't yet i need to use it on my 7D what shall i do ?

    Cheers !

    The FD 7.5 was retrofocus and didn't extend into the camera which was one of its nice features - you didn't need mirror lock-up. So, it should be adaptable. Of course, we're ยต4/3 experts here, not EOS, so we could be missing some boat. Do you have pictures of lens and adapter?
