I've been following this thread for a while & finally settling to purchasing a legacy lens for my Sony NEX 6. Considering I'm a Canon shooter, I've been looking at FD mount lenses & obviously, an FD to NEX adapter. Couple of questions:

1. Should I purchase an adapter with AF or stick to the el cheapo manual version?
2. Should I consider a fast prime (i.e. 28 f2.8) or would a zoom be a better option?

I've found several lenses that I'm considering....
Canon 35-70 f3.5-4.5
Vivitar Series 1 28-105 f2.8-3.8
Vivitar 25-85 f2.8-3.8
Canon FD 28 f2.8
Kiron 28-1405 f3.5-4.5
Soligor 28mm f2.8

I realize that the list above is deep, but I'm simply looking for a lil' help to get on the right path. This lens will simply be complimentary to the kit 16-50. Thanks in advance!

FD lenses do not have AF, so not sure what adapter you were looking at. Of the one's you listed above, I'd only recommend the S1 28-105mm and the FD 28/2.8. The others would be strange FL's on crop imo. If you really think you'll get into MF lenses on the NEX though, I would look into a focal reducer in FD to E mount, they can be found as cheap as $100 these days for E mount.

FDn 100 macro

I may upgrade to a better macro in the future, as this one cannot do 1:1, only 1:2, which doesnt work for bug closeups. I may consider the extension tube route as well, but not sure how the macro behaves with that. Would definitely save money that route, but tamron 90VC is definitely appealing for the VC.

Sony A7riii/A9 - FE 12-24/4 - FE 24-240 - SY 24/2.8 - FE 28/2 - FE 35/2.8 - FE 50/1.8 - FE 85/1.8 - EF 135/1.8 Art - F 600/5.6 - CZ 100-300 - Astro Rok 14/2.8 - Tamron 17-28/2.8 - 28-75/2.8 RXD, 70-200/2.8 VC

Something the other way...
I love the L 400/5.6 USM on my Olympus E-M1!

Now THAT's a SWITCH! Very sharp, and through two panes of glass to boot. :)

Looking at your list, I can only comment on the 28mm. I have a Canon and a Vivitar 28 f2.8, both in FD and much prefer the Vivitar.

With my FD to EOS-M adapter, the Canon aperture can only be set by moving the lock/open ring, which isn't very accurate. Whilst with the Vivitar, the aperture ring on the lens can be moved, making it much more accurate.

As you would be using an FD to NEX adapter, the situation could be very different.:)

Having said all of that. I prefer my M42 lenses, simply because they work very well on my 7D and EOS-M. FD lenses are rubbish on the 7D.

This is my preference as well. M42 lenses all have manual aperture controls too, so no worries there. ;)
Have been playing with M42 lenses for years, and find they work well on EOS cameras. :)

A friend got this for me in a thrift shop: Tamron 75-250mm f/3.8. It's in mint condition, as if it were bought new in the shop. Took a few test shots. Some purple fringing, especially wide open, but on the whole, not bad at all.

^^ Looks sharp ;)

Well, the Yashica 35mm went for more than I wanted but a -10% offer on the Yashica 28mm was accepted :)

Don't talk me into a Yashica 135/2.8 please...... lol

Seriously, thanks for the advice guys :)

Does anyone what the actual distance is for protruding rear elements before hitting the mirror on FF [5D2]??

There's a bit of variation when it comes to the 5D series. There are several charts out there that'll let you know what lenses will (almost always) clear on a 5D, which ones just don't and which ones you'll have to try for yourself. If I can track one down, I'll post it (or a link).

edit - here's one for Contax lenses - as you can see, when it comes to the 5D, there's quite a bit of "Iffy." Sometimes that means that they'll hit depending upon the particular body/adapter, sometimes it means that it may hit only when focused at infinity, etc. So, yeah - sometimes you've gotta try and hope for the best.

There does seem a lot of 'iffy' yeah when it comes to the 5D series. My Yashica 50's [1.9 & 2] are fine & my Helios 44M-4 is fine & the Pentacon 1.8/50 too. The Helios 44-2 hits [I found out by accident once!] but I may have a go at modifying it a little - Which is why I was wondering if there was an actual measurement in mm for clearance ;)

The link below might give you some idea of what can and can't be used on the 5D.

Yeah, a little fin shaving is a-okay by me. After you try a certain number of lenses on your particular body, you'll start to get a better idea of where it lands, in terms of tolerances; my body, in particular, seems to be okay, more often than not, on the iffy ones.
