Question SLR/DSLR Lens Adapters

I know they make them and have seen them on various sites. Can anyone direct me to a site or any current deals or where you recommend buying? Any cons to getting one of these adapters? Thanks.

If you're talking about the cheapo wide angle adapters that screw onto the end of your lens, stay away. They are typically POS and have a drastic fisheye effect (unless of course that is the effect you're going for). I bought one on ebay for $20 and its going back.

If you're talking about adapters to put on a lens with a different mounting system, those I've had luck with. Make sure they have glass in them to allow infinity focus. For example, my cam uses EF series lenses, but I picked up a $40 adapter to use some old FD series lenses that were laying around.

This is based on my experience with the new Rebel T2i from canon. May or may not be relevant with other brands of cameras...

Are you trying to adapt a different brand lens to a different brand body? Most older lenses will mount on the newer cameras as long as they are the same make. Nikon lenses work way back on the new bodies.
