Default EF to FD Converter Available?

I've heard about a converter that mounts older Canon FD lenses on newer cameras like the 10D. Does anyone know where to get one of these?

I believe theses adapters will not let you focus to infinity or there about since the lens distance to the camera plane has changed between the FL/FD to EOS mount switchover.

Canon did make a better one, but it only worked for certain lenses or use with a bellow since it protruded into the FD lens mount (mostly newer long FD "L" lenses without the chrome collar):

Thank you NHL. I appreciate you digging up these results. I can see that I should have used "FD to EOS" instead of "FD to EF" for search terms.

It looks like the Canon might work for me. I'll try to find one.
