    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.
