What adapter are you using? Brand/seller? The IQ looks pretty good for an FD (I'm assuming an adapter with glass was used).

kevin arnold wrote in post #16217608 (external link)
he's shooting with an EOS M so the adapter doesn't need glass.

maverick75 wrote in post #16217741 (external link)
Main reason why I bought the M!

That makes an EOS-M really intriguing, especially for the prices they are selling for now.

That is very interesting indeed. But it still needs an adapter, right?

Yup, $12 adapter :) (picture below taken with a pentax k mount promura 28mm macro)

No glass is needed though, that's the real kicker. You retain infinity and no image quality loss from added glass, also no teleconveter effect(which you also get from glass adapters). Additionally you get an aperture switch, which is very nice for the auto type lenses!

There are some FD lenses which you can convert to EF, I've done one and it wasn't worth it at all.
Only the L's and the telephotos are worth it(in my opinion). Plenty of awesome Nikon F,Yashica,Oly, M42, Pentax glass that's is easily converted! no need to mess around with FD, unless you want headaches.

Thanks for the info! Very interesting. How's the shutter on the EOS M? Fast, slow? I want to buy a 35mm for my 5D for some street shots, but could also go a different route.

So, a Nex takes a FD too? Also with an adapter I take it?

A fotga one, I also have their EF-EF-M and EF- Sony E mount. I would recommend them, all metal construction no play whatsoever in the mount! Fantastic price to boot.

The shutter is pretty quick, 1/4000 and I'm not sure on the frame rate but it's like 4 fps.
The buffer is really nice, it takes like 8 seconds to outrun it. I've never had to hold it down for more than 2 seconds let alone 8!

Nex will also work with this adapter:

For street shooting if you need autofocus the M is way way too slow. That's what I purchased it for and was disappointment, even after the firmware update it take 2-3 seconds to lock on most of the time. For stationary objects it's fine but for moving ones you're better going with something else.

You can prefocus it though, then set it to manual focus. F8 and forget focusing lol

any mirrorless cam (NEX, EOS M, micro 4/3) will easily adapt legacy lenses with $10-20 adapters.

i use all these on my NEX and GX1.

Just starting with manual lenses. Here is a shot with a cheapo Trimex 135mm I picked up for $30

I need a 35mm lens but haven't decided on AF or MF yet. I have an old Meyer Lydith 30mm lens and yeah, I prefocus at f/8 and that works well, so on even days of the week I decide I will buy the Samyang 35mm, but on odd days I'm convinced I want AF and think I will buy the old 35mm f/2 (don't want to spend too much cash on this). :rolleyes: I find it difficult to decide. But a camera that takes 2 to 3 seconds to focus, no, I definitely don't want that!

I swear there must be something wrong with yours, or you're doing something different from me. I had only my M and my EF 35/2 in Hartford last weekend and I had zero issues with its AF speed, even at night, and I used Multi point AF most of the time.

the latest firmware was supposed to fix much of the laggy AF speed.

maverick, did you update, yet?
