Hello,

I just purchased an FD to EOS Lens Converter for my Canon Digital Rebel.

Does anyone know if this will work with all FD lenes?

I have my father's old FD Vivitar 400mm Auto Telephoto Lens

and an old

Canon FD 135mm Lens.

Should these work with the converter on the Digital Rebel?

Thanks

1. You'll have to push the stop-down lever on the lens until it 'stuck' into position
2. Mount the lens and focus manually
3. The aperture is controlled from the lens
4. Use the camera on manual and adjust the shutter until the bar goes under the 'v' - in the viewfinder scale: -2..1..v..1..+2
