    Comments about Vello Canon FD Mount Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

    The adapter is great in every way an completely lives up to the worth. Both the inside and outside is coated with a metallic black finish which is non-reflective so there's no strange flares or any color casts for shooting. The camera and lens mounts are very sturdy with no play. I'm using this lens with a Canon FD 80-200mm L and 300mm L Lenses on my a Panasonic GH4 and the adapter is secure to the point where you'd think the lens was made for the camera. There's absolutely no downsides to this adapter regardless of the price.

        Comments about Vello Canon FD Mount Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

        This adapter is black inside and out, so there aren't any strange reflections on the sensor panels like other inexpensive adapters. Been using this for a 50mm Canon FD f/1.4 lens on my BMPCC camera and just keep it on the lens!
        Also added benefit of using vintage manual lenses with this adapter is no need to buy special de-clicked aperture lenses-- the locking mechanism from unlock to locked switch also doubles as a smooth aperture ring so stop up and down on the go, which is perfect for moving from dark to light room for video work.

        Great product

        Comments about Vello Canon FD Mount Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

        very well made solid construction clicks into place nicely the only thing I found that I didn't like is there is no dots to line up the mounts but it's not a big deal you can clearly see how it clips in over all I would suggest this product to my friends or other customers

        Works great with black ring latching FD lenses. Doesn't work with silver ring or chrome nose types. Still an excellent product.

            Comments about Vello Canon FD Mount Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

            I have several FD lenses and now I have found a mount that I have some confidence that I can attach and release without struggle. Vello has done a good job of providing an alternative to the German product. I would say they have succeeded. To my persnickety tastes....and yes I have tried some cheaper earlier products which have been tight and balky, Not this one. Buy it.

              Comments about Vello Canon FD Mount Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

              I purchased the adapter so I can use my old Canon lenses on my Olympus EPL-1. The money I saved by purchasing the adapter was much better than spending hundreds on a zoom or telephoto lens. The canon lens fit perfectly on the adapter. The only drawback is that I now must set the aperture manually, which is not a big deal.

                Comments about Vello Canon FD Mount Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

                Pretty pricy for a little ring made of metal... until I held it in my hand and used it. It's about as sturdy as the old lens I was using it with. The adapter fits so snugly, I thought I bought the wrong adapter at first when I had trouble mounting my lens.

                If you want to change the aperture, set the ring to "open".
