To dislodge or remove the lens from its breach-lock system mount you need to deliverately press the release button and twist the lens barrel counter-clockwise. Any veteran canon user knows this.
You can knock-off the lens if it was half-hazzardly mounted and not hearing that re-assuring click.
I know I shouldn't be picky, but the Canon FD system was a 'breech-lock'. The EOS system ( and virtually all other systems ) use a bayonet mount.
Originally, yes. Then the FDn lenses became bayonet mounted with a lens release button on the lens, not the body
The breach-lock is a pain in the @$$ IMHO (I still have some old FL stuff that's breech lock).
