Vello LA-NEX-FD Overview

Make the most of your existing collection of Canon FD-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter that will allow you to mount these lenses to a Sony E-mount camera. Precise construction makes it easy to attach these adapted lenses to your camera and keeps it secure during use. Infinity focus is guaranteed, ensuring that you get proper functionality our of all your optics. Additionally, the adapter is made from a durable zinc alloy and features a matte black finish on the inside to reduce the potential for glare and reflections that can negatively impact image quality.

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. Focusing to infinity is retained.

This adapter enables the use of Canon FD lenses on Sony E-mount cameras, meaning you can now use your existing stable of lenses on your current camera. It is also very secure, holding the lens in place without any wobble sometimes associated with the adapting process.
Thanks to precise manufacturing, this adapter is guaranteed to provide infinity focus by placing the lens at the correct distance from the sensor. This allows you to make the most of your lenses and doesn't limit you from shooting distant subjects.
Made from a durable zinc alloy, this adapter will withstand many uses and won't wear or break in the way soft brass or cheap plastic would. Also, an internal matte black finish reduces reflections and glare, ensuring your images look sharp and contrasty.

Easy to use and inexpensive, it's a no-brainer.

Great product!

Only reason I gave it 4 stars is because there's not a good 'click' when in lock position. There is when it's open though. It should have been the other way around.

Great

Open/Lock Ring lets you engage aperture on FDF lenses for real time metering.

I bought this based on the price as my need was not mission critical, but it turned out to be a solid adapter and perfectly usable. I don't do autofocus so that's never my need. Beyond that, I'd say every feature of this adapter is comparable to more expensive examples. The locking collar is a nice detail. Using on FX3 with cinemodded FD lenses.

great mount

Will this adapter successfully work with a Sony A7iii so that I can use my glass from a Canon AE-1 with the old Breach-lock FD lenses? Just curious before I buy this Vello brand. My Altson Canon EF to Sony FE adapter works great on my Sony A7iii. I'm hoping this Vello adapter will do the same for my AE-1 glass. Thank you, in advance

What does "Focusing to infinity is retained." mean? Can I focus on subjects near me with this adapter?
Asked by: Kuro
With some adapters from other manufacturers or from other systems, occasionally the physics involved in making the lens suitable for use can prevents lens from focusing at infinity (aka the furthest point possible). With this one, there will be no limitations for focusing at minimum or at infinity. :)

question

I just got a LA-NEX-FD adapter, but my FD lens aperture won't change when I adjust the aperture ring. Do you know what might be the issue? Thank you.
Asked by: Yujia J.
If I recall, there is a little pin inside the adaptor - which needs to be properly aligned with the - I don't know what you might call it on the lens bottom. Once that is aligned it will work. Took me a few tries to get those aligned, but once done, it works as it should.
