First time poster in this forum, and I want to ask this before I spend money.

My parents were avid photographers, and both had Canon AE-1 Cameras. I have an Olympus Pen E-PL1.

I have a few lenses from my parents. Two of them are FD lenses.

I also know that my Olympus camera is a Micro 4/3rds lens mount.

Will this Lens Adapter work with the Canon lenses I have?

Will this Lens Mount work with the Canon lenses I have?

YES, It will allow you to mount your FD, or FL, lens's to your PEN E-PL1 but see note below, I can not speak to functionality as I know nothing about the PEN E-PL1.

From the amazon link.

Note: This is a manual adapter, so lens functions that rely on electronic communication with the camera body (autofocus, AE metering, image stabilization, etc.) will be disrupted. Set your exposure manually or meter using your camera's Aperture Priority (stop-down) mode. If your lens does not have a manual aperture control ring, it will stop down to its smallest f/stop by default. All pictures are for illustration purposes only. Actual product may vary slightly due to ongoing improvements in design.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Fd lenses are manual focus. There is no AF. FD lenses will work fine with a simple glassless adapter. Use stop down metering techniques. Don't expect to take quick pics either. \$\endgroup\$
