Canon EF-S to FD converter . . . ?

Hi peeps,

Was wondering if such a converter exists? I have found plenty of FD to EF, but not EF-S to FD. Reason I ask is, i intend to get into Wide Field Astrophotography. I have an equatorial mount with motor drives already, but i only have an 17-55mm f2.8 lens. I want to go up to about 300mm, and the older and faster manual focus FD lenses are a darn sight cheaper than EF ones!!

Thanks in advance

An EF adapter will fit your EF-S mount, so why not use an FD to EF converter, unless I am missing something.

Hi Phil,

Yep - you are spot on! Never considered my camera also accepts EF lenses . . . . . I blame it ll on lack of sleep and working too hard!!
