    and would you recommend it?

    I just got a canon FD f3.5 50mm macro! im very excited!

    What adapter are you using for your FD lenses? recommendations welcome.

    Ive got a fotodiox OM adapter, which is spot on, but fotodiox dont ship FD adapters to the uk anymore sadly.

    Haha! you crazy people :p 

    Thanks for the help.

    Does your RJ camera adapter have an aperture latch - meaning that the aperture blades of the FD lens attached are always contracted ready to take the shot?

    I know some adapters dont have this, instead you have to press a button on the side of the lens to contract the aperture blades and then press the shutter (or use an elastic band to keep it pressed)

    Thanks! :p
