canon fd lenses

Does anybody know if canon fd mount lenses can be used on a e-600 via an adaptor (cant find one advertised). Just been offered 3 lenses and a convertor. Canon 50mm f1.8, Kiron 80-200 f4 macro, kiron 2x match mate convertor and a panagor reflex300, any ideas on prices etc

Re: canon fd lenses

There is a Russian adaptor for the new FD lenses (that the ones without a breech block) but you do have to remove some bits of the lens to fit the adaptor, As far as I know there is nothing at all for the breech block variety.

As Crimbo says there are several adaptors to fit FD to mFT

I have one on my Kiron FD mount and I didn't have to remove anything.
