Also, the key to finding me on eBay is not searching Ed Mika but rather edmika. My company name is the combination of my middle and last names (My first name is hard to pronounce, my parents are Czech).

I'm giving some thought to purchasing the FD 600mm, and I have a few questions about mounting this to an EOS 1D or 1Ds body. I've never used the FD lenses before, so these questions might seem a bit trivial, but I'd appreciate serious helpful replies anyway.
(1) How does metering and choice of aperture work? Is it stop-down metering still?
(2) I'm not terribly handy. How difficult or technical is the installation of this adapter on this lens? Is there a pictoral or video guide somewhere showing how to do it? I saw it mentioned that the aperture lever might need to be bent. How do I go about doing that? Is the metal fairly pliable?
(3) Does the adapter also work with a teleconverter? If so, does it need to be an FD teleconverter or an EOS one?
Thank you in advance!
noobs blaming their own errors on canon.. you have to love it.
i have shoot with a 550D in rain.. no problem.
what where you doing scuba diving?
I hope you get things working again... but.
The 7D was rated as weatherproof (whatever that actually means).
The 6D is not.
Maybe you shouldn't have cut corners yourself.
Not suggesting you should have had to pay an extra grand for a 5D3 with weather sealing, but $60 on a kata jacket or even $5 on a throwaway rain cover...
My over-riding feeling is empathy, sympathy even, but you can't really blame canon. You made a bad call, but the punishment seems undue.
I'll add that to the list of FD lenses I look for. There does not seem to be good supply of the best FD lenses on the market locally, they are very hard to find at my price, which mean nearly free
I just tried to buy from them right now but they don't ship to Canada.
Looks like they are in Michigan and that is like next door to Canada! ROAD TRIP!
