Not good for anyone serious about image quality.
on 20 May 2014
I bought this after purchasing a series of FD lenses for my film SLR and wanted to expand their use to my Dslr's. The adapter does work but doesn't work well. Trying to get the adapter ring onto the lens is the first problem its fiddly and the alignments of the adapter to the mounts on the lens and the body are vague at best.
The lens in the adapter is not of a very high quality and it produces heavy chromatic aberration on the edges. Also although the lens in the adapter allows focusing to infinity, the focus itself is very soft. I tested it over several focal lengths with both zoom and fixed lenses. The lens in the adapter also reduces the circle of illumination on the sensor causing heavy vignetting. This is not as noticeable on my EOS 600D due to the cropped sensor size bit is very noticeable on my full frame 5D.
Ok, for the price you may wish to use this in conjunction with a second hand FD lens as it can be cheaper than getting a new ef or ef-s lens but I would not recommend to anyone who wants a high quality image. I believe there are higher quality adapters available but they come at a much higher price point.
