I liked the color of the telephoto lenses...

I want a fully manual DIGITAL SLR that uses Canon FD lenses. High quality FD lenses are out there moldering in closets by the millions! They're moldering in MY closet. I WANT a manual camera! I LIKE to set my shutter speed and f stop. I LIKE to figure out my depth of field. Ricoh makes a digital camera that takes old Leica lenses! Any manufacturer--doesn't have to be Canon, in fact it would be better if it wasn't as far as I'm concerned because Canon abandoned me and orphaned all my lenses! A 24 x 36mm CMOS chip with 3 controls--f stop, shutter speed, and ASA. Doesn't even have to be SLR as long as it has a big fine grained led screen. Is any manufacturer close to making anything like this? Doesn't anybody else want what I want?
Not a Canon extender, no, Canon "fixed" that. It does with the Kenko Pro range. Alas not had chance to compare with the 100-400 as mine is alas a rubbish copy. Others however on this forum have good copies so I think that I'm in a minority.Why not get the Canon Extender 1.4x II or 2x III?
The 70-300 L does not accept an extender.
@OP - You're 200mm on the 50D gave you effective 320mm, with 1.4x converter then it gave you 448mm. If you need that sort of reach, then is it not more of a compare the 100-400mm with the 400mm f/5.6 and keep you're existing 70-200?
Just picked up my camera and lens.
The 40D has replacements of the shutter assembly, the shutter release button and AF unit
The 35/1.4 has misaligned center components and need to be re-calibrated.
Everything is fixed and cost me $209 for the body and $269 for the lens.
Never thought repair can be so expensive. Take good care of your gears guys...
