The Ed Mika converter is great for valuable and high quality FD lenses, but for run of the mill FD lenses, its far cheaper to get a Nikon or M42 or OM lens and a cheap adapter than fool around converting a FD with a expensive adapter..

It is amusing to note that those who claim that this is a photogrpahy forum and that they come here to know/learn photography and that there is no room for this, that and the other are still replying/posting in this "supposedly useless" thread, when there is nothing of photographic value here or in any such similar threads ... I mean if one thinks the egg is rotton from the first bite, does one have to eat the whole egg to make sure it really is rotton!
Ironically these "supposedly useless" threads somehow seem to go on and on, largely thanks to those who claim they do not like these kind of posts/threads.
I saw a Brownie Hawkeye at the flea market this weekend. That was my first camera a 'few' years ago, takes me back to the 'darkroom' in a bathroom. I wonder if there will be a similar degree of change in photography in the next 50 years - full sensory recording wired to the brain or some such.I was started on the Brownie as well, it was the early 1950's, then a Yashica TLR, and then a Argus C3 before buying my First Canon FT-QL in the 1960's. Just between 1998 and 2013, the camera world has been turned on its head, I expect that in the next 20 years, we will see big changes, and yes, there will be things that seem like crazy dreams now. Quite a bit of work is being done to link up cameras to the brains of people who are blind, for example, and that research will start to pay off sooner than we think.
Okay - getting back to the FF/crop discussion. Again? Haven't we hashed this out enough? You say tomayto I say tomahto.
