Does the job, but hard to use.

Poorly documented

I attempted to use this product yesterday with my Sony A700 and a few of my large collection of Canon FD lenses. First of all, this thing arrived with no documentation; zero! I did some searching on the web and found manuals on the Fotodiox site. The quotes are intentional. This feels like using Unix 30 years ago, where the documentation told you about 25% of what you needed to know. I also called B&H and spoke to one of their technical people; he was pretty clueless. I don't blame them for that -- they can't possibly know the details for every product they sell. It is Fotodiox's responsibility to document the use of their product.If you are interested in this product, I will save you some time and aggravation by telling you some things that are not in the manual that are essential. 1. You must set the camera to aperture priority.2. The camera must be set to fire the shutter without a lens present (the A700 has a setting for this, if you dig around in the menu structure; it will only take a couple of hours :-).3. To mount the adapter on the camera, the ring with the word Install must be turned so the dots line up.4. Leave the install ring as it was when you mounted the adapter on the camera. If you turn it, you will not be able to mount the lens. There is some gibberish in the manual about this, but it is not helpful.5. Set up the way I just suggested, you use the aperture ring on the lens to determine the aperture (the adapter also lets you use its ring for this; don't). The camera will do its usual aperture priority thing and determine the shutter speed.The product itself looks well made. I don't know about results yet, as my time with it has been spent on the phone, searching the web, scratching my head, and doing a bit of cursing. Hopefully, now that I've broken the Fotodiox code, I will be able to make some use of my beautiful Canon lenses with the Sony body.
