Product Highlights
  • Adapts Canon FD Lens for Use on Canon EOS Camera

The Vello Lens Mount Adapter - Canon FD Lens to Canon EOS Camera allows you to mount a Canon FD lens to a Canon EOS camera body. Besides for making financial sense, this allows you to use your favorite lens across different camera platforms. The lens adapter is designed to fit securely to the lens, yet can still be removed easily when not needed.

This lens adapter acts as a mount adapter and an optical adapter. It features optical-quality glass elements to achieve this. The adapter increases the focal length by 1.25x and reduces the lens aperture by 1 f/stop.

Note! Although the lens will fit physically, autofocus, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), and other functions dependent on communication between camera body and lens will be disrupted by the lens adapter. You will need to focus manually, and to set exposures manually or meter in aperture priority (stop-down) mode. If the lens does not have a manual aperture collar, the aperture will be stopped down to its smallest f/stop. Focusing to infinity is retained.

    Years ago my wife and daughters gave me a Canon T50 SLR. I proceeded to purchase a handful of additional lenses. Since Canon's T3 became available (with its LCD screen)I had to jump-on-it, since I can now use the lenses with my new Canon T3...Great Product from B&H Photo.

          I ordered the Lens Mount Adapter - Canon FD Lens to Canon EOS Camera by Vello in order to use my FD lens that I used with my Canon AE-1. Unfortunately, I could not mount the lens to my Rebel T3. I tried for more than 2 hours with no luck. The 5 stars are for the way B&H handled my return request. I was treated with courtesy by their customer rep and processed my return quickly and without any hassle. Good job B&H!

                              I might rate this higher, but have only done a few tests with it with my 600mm mirror lens. Have gotten a few good images handheld and with a monopod, but because of the size of the lens and my lack of time at the present, I need to put the camera, lens adapter and lens on a tripod or some other solid means of support.

                              I bought this adapter so that i could use the FD lens off of my Canon AE-1. The Canon 1.4 50mm FD fits and functions great on my T5i. However there is a draw back to using this adapter or any adapter, and that is that due to fact that you are adding extra glass the focal length of the lens become doubled. So now my 50mm is a 100mm. Not a deal breaker, just something to keep in mind. With this adapter I can now use high quality older lenses on a new DSLR

                              I have some FD lenses from the years of my F1. I recently came back to Canon and these workhorse lens. The adapter let me re-experience those years of learning to focus, to set f-stops, compose, and antipating what the darkroom would reveal. I am really enjoying playing with my 50mm 1.4 ssc lens again...this time with my EOS 6D. Thanks B&H for enabling me to relive a moment of my life from the 70's.

                                      I got this adapter to use on two reflex lenses I have, a 600mm soligar mirror lens, and a 500mm Canon mirror lens, both of the lenses had athe older FD mount. I am using a Canon 1D-X.

                                      The adapter worked well with the soligar lens, but there was quite a bit of vignetting with the Canon. I have ordered another adapter that does not have the built in lens, maybe that will work better on the Canon lens

                                      This adaptor is the missing link in my collection of gear... literally. It lets me use the lenses my father collected over the years to use with his canon a1 with my new 70d. It has literally doubled the number of lenses I can use. Easy to use, effective, affordable. Triple threat. Love it

                                      Like many people.I had a bag of old Canon FD lenses that I couldn't use with my EOS cameras. I was hesitant to get an adapter as I was afraid it wouldn't work and would be a hassle to return. However, I was able to put it right on the camera and have used it with several lenses already to do some tests. Results have been great, though I haven't printed anything. But they look good on the camera and on the computer.

                                          This adapter is the answer to fitting my old FD lenses to my Canon 70d. It takes a bit of patience to fit to the camera and the lens to it, but it works and is solidly built.
                                          I will probably only use it as a backup and it may not get much use but it's a good addition to the camera shelf in case I need it.

                                          I haven't shot with it enough to rate it's quality in performance yet.

                                              This Vello FD to Canon EOS (EF) lens adapater works as described. Had a bit of difficulty initally adapting an old FD lens to it and them to my Canon T4i. However, it enables me to now reuse all of my old Canon Ftb FD lenses on my current Canon T4i camera.

                                              I had specialized FD lenses sitting idle for tens of years. Now I can use them again on EOS. The adapter is compact, easy to use and of very good quality. A super investment well worth it.

                                              Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - Canon FD Lens to Canon EOS Camera:

                                              I have several FD lenses that I needed to attach to my EOS T5i camera. I saw this adapter and decided to give it a shot.

                                              First off you have to be careful when you are attaching this to your camera or to the lens and then attaching it to your camera. Your lens locking ring can give you the impression that it's locked when it may not be. So - be careful or your nice FD lens will be on the floor before you know it. When you use it with a big super telephoto lens (mine is a 200-800mm) make sure you have the mount ring for a tripod/monopod.

                                              Second - a light meter is a great thing to have as your auto exposure will not work, nor will your focus - as this does not support auto focus.

                                              The FD lenses are cheap. Generally they are pretty well made too - metal body, etc. No electronic parts to foul up if it gets dropped. For a cost purpose you can't go wrong with a FD super telephoto lens, this adapter makes it happen.

                                                Very user friendly. Allowed the use of my lenses from the Canon AE-1 Program to work on my EOS Rebel T3. My AE-1 lenses are by several different manufactures and all work very well with the adapter.

                                                  Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - Canon FD Lens to Canon EOS Camera:

                                                  Really hard to give this a bad review. It's cost effective and allows me to use my old lenses. A little more light loss because there is more glass to go through. It's hard to get really sharp pictures. It does a pretty good job on video.
