    experience with canon FD to four thirds system?

    hi all..

    i have a collection of canon FD primes including 50L and 85L and other standard primes that i would like to use on my E420 camera.

    i saw an adaptor from a Russian company, but i have tried emailing them twice with no reponses..

    can anyone here tell me if you tried these adaptors and does it work well, and does it focus to infinity.. and where can i purchase the adaptors?

    thanks in advanced.

    We have passed around some adaptors in the Olympus forums between members and yes they work. Check some of the post, we currently have an OM to 4/3rds and Yashica to 4/3rds being passed around. But I would swing for a good one from a e-bay member with good feed back. If you don't mind shooting full manual it is a good way to get use out of good glass. IMO...
