    It does sound reasonable though.

    I bought a cheap FD to EOS adapter and was not too pleased with the results (I know many people have the opposite reaction with their images) so bought a M42 to EOS adapter, also cheap, this was supposed to provide focus confirmation but it did not. I then purchased a cheap M42 adapter with a flange that would depress the pin on auto lenses, much better! I was much more pleased with those images. I tried my Chinon 200mm F3.5 M42 on my 20D and enjoyed the results.

    Great shots, I'm glad to see you did not give up. I like the composition of the first image. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I am getting focus confirmation with my cheap M42-EOS adapter on both the EOS-1Ds and the EOS-20D. I have not seen an M42 adapter that depresses the pin. It is good to know that they exist but I don't need one as my Super-Takumars and SMC-Takumars all have Manual/Auto switches and Manual mode effectively pushes the pin. I have two Tamron Adaptall-2 lenses which don't have Man/Auto switches but I have made reversible modifications to those which keeps the pin pushed in.

    Those flower images are great. You could not wish for better than that.
