Canon 100mm FD macro on 7D using adapter with glass removed.

Very interesting. I thought there were no adapters for Canon FD to EF mount.

There are different ones. Those with glass, and those without.
With glass - lenses you get infinity, but lower quality, and longer focal length and slwor f-stop.
Those without glass most times allow no infinity. Ed Mika has some better ones for the long FD lenses which allow infinity setting (read more at his site).
killwilly used an adapter with removed lenses - so he gets full quality with the Fd 100 Macro, but no longer infinity - the adapter works as an extension tube.

I think the standard is to stay away w/ the ones w/ glass, as they degrade quality. Basically an excellent lens can easily become a mediocre one.

So you could use an extension tube instead with these FD lenses then? I mean, yes, lose infinity, but have good IQ?

You don't need to use extension tubes, you can just use an adapter like this, but you'll still lose infinity focus.

Oops! I edited my last post with the correct link ;)

The negative reviews are because people don't research or read anything about what they're buying and then wonder why it's not working... :lol:

I read a review for the tilt EF to XF adapter I bought for my Fuji that said "I bought this by mistake for my EOS DSLR, it doesn't work. Seems like an alright product" and he gave it a 2 star rating which brought the over-all star rating down to 3 1/2 stars... take Amazon's star rating with a grain of salt ;)

Thanks again.
And about those negative reviews, you are very right. People can be such idiots, buying stuff without doing some proper homework first. :rolleyes:

Oh, I'm gonna have to buy one of these now and get a cool FD lens to try it out!

But avoid lenses with floating elements / internal focussing for best results.
And remember with this adapter you have a kind of extension tube - so no infinity. And depending on the lens your maximum (!) object distance is rather short. With a tele lens several meters, with a extreme wideangel probably your front lens :-)

Thank you for the education and information.

Very interesting. I thought there were no adapters for Canon FD to EF mount.

The adapter I use can be found in the link below, but as ZoneV said, infinity focus can not be achieved, despite the claims made by the vendors. I enjoy using my old 100mm FD macro on my T90, so decided to have a try with my DSLR, hence the purchase of this adapter. All I had to do was remove the glass elements, which simply screw out.
