Adapters are made for this purpose. Take a look on eBay.

Welcome to ePHOTOzine Smile

thewilliam suggests eBay which is a good option for this kind of item. There are three levels, basic ones which are anything from about 10, more advanced focus confirm versions which are 15 upwards (watch out - both these two don't allow infinity focus so may have macro in the description) and the third is a version with a glass element that will focus on infinity, but may degrade quality.
You will lose all form of automation on all models.
thankyou both what do i actually ask for ..what do i write down as ive tried a few ideas but cant seem to get what i want ...conn

This is as much as you need to know: FD mount - Wikipedia
Your old lens will not be fully functional on your new camera, image quality will suffer as well. Time to sell them or to keep them with the film camera - if you wish.
michael and all i thank you very much for taking the time to reply to my request ...i shall ofcourse keep my t50 its a gem ....but will have to look around to see if any decent 2nd hand stuff is availiable
