        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

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

        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".
