Yeah, $50 more is still too much for what I've invested..

So, basically, you'd end up with something close to a 100-260mm f/5.6 lens using that type of adapter with a 1.3x TC built in (and you may like the longer focal length more, depending on what you're shooting). You can usually assume around 1 stop of light loss from a 1.4x or 1.5x TC. So, an adapter giving you 1.3x magnification would probably be closer to 2/3 stop.

that would probably be best.

manual focus lenses can be a bit of a pain to focus on the smaller dslrs as well. you may look into Canon 55-250 IS, great price and good optics.

The good news is the FD lenses are selling better than they have recently on ebay. as they work rather well on the micro-4/3 cameras. i am sure you could get rid of it fairly promptly.
