http://en.conurus.com/​faq.html#general (external link) I am old school ,old fart more like it , anyway when I was shooting EONs ago I used the canon F-1 (never had a battery) with the leica R series lenses to help out . It worked well . ( I no longer own any equiptment now due to an EX,nuff said) Now I am at a juncture in my life that I am going to start all over in photography. Just got my Digital Darkroom( CS3) to try to learn... Will be buying a Canon Digital camera here soon and thought about my old habits Liking German glass .... Then I saw what these guys are doing and was wondering if anyone has bitten the bullet and done so... I know people have as they are so backed up in production that it would be next year before you can receive the setup... Just curious..

Hello David,
I know what you mean. Diamonds are for ever and so are lenses.
Alot has changed since the "good old" days. I used to start with a Canon FTd and a Canon A1 and a lot of glass to go with that. Later on, there was a gap for about ten years that I didn't took a single picture. Since three years now I picked up the microbe and SOLD the analogue stuff to replace with new stuff.
The only lens I didn't sell was the Canon 500mm reflex lens which I still use with an adaptor. Hell I even used it yesterday. Darn difficult to use but glad I still have it.
Now back to your situation. I suppose you still have your German lenses. If there are no "special" lenses like my reflex lens, get rid of them. Not only is the adaptor expensive but you will certainly lose speed and possible conflicts are to be considdered also. Once you get (re)started you'll want to be able to get the best results with the products of todays market, not with some sentimental leftovers (no offence).
You'll find your hands full with the CS3 "darkroom". The new lenses are better built and need less postprocessing.
So, hope I could help out.
Greetings from Ghent,
Alain

There are quite a few adapters ou there that will allow the use of M42 or LeicaR lenses on an Eos. No speed loss, not too expensive. No AF or auto aperture either.
