I have a number of perfectly working Canon fd lenses.
I am wondering if anyone has put the EOS adapter on the FD lens and tried it
on the digital rebel
thanks to anyone who has tried it

This subject comes up every few weeks; I suggest you Google.

The short story is, yes, but only if you want to use them for macro
work. The EOS/FD adapter is in fact an extension tube and you lose
infinity focus. There was a teleconverter (1.3x) but it only worked on a
few of the very expensive large L FD teles and zooms, and is very, very
rare.

I have the macro adapter, and it is quite useful if you have any of the
specialist macro gear (especially the bellows and bellows macro lenses)
but pretty useless otherwise.
