    Comments about Bower AB43FD Micro Four Thirds Body to Canon FD Lens Adapter:

    I'm using this adapter on my Panasonic AF100, to mount my FD primes on the camera.

    The adapter has many upsides: it's not expensive at all (compared to similar adapters from other manufacturers), it allows focus to infinity, it's solidly constructed, and intuitive to use.

    The only downside is that with a couple of my lenses, the mounting isn't quite solid enough. When I'm racking focus, I can see some shifting. I've used other Canon FD adapters (the Hama for Canon EOS, for instance) and didn't have this problem. Still working on a DIY solution.

    However, it's still a great buy for a good product. I'd recommend it.

      Comments about Bower AB43FD Micro Four Thirds Body to Canon FD Lens Adapter:

      This adapter worked great on my Panasonic G2 and allows me to use old Canon FD lenses in "A" mode on the G2. On some lenses there's a little slop but that might be due to tolerances in the old lens mounts rather than the adapter. It will also allow you to shoot video with the Pan G2 as well.

        Comments about Bower AB43FD Micro Four Thirds Body to Canon FD Lens Adapter:

        The adapter has a loose fit and allowed focus beyond infinity making focusing on distant subjects annoying to say the least. I'm ordering another brand from a different retailer. If I have the same issues I'll be sure to revisit this review.
