those FD's aren't dead on the mirrorless cameras. it's more like the mirrorless cameras are the Viktor Frankenstein of old legacy lenses. or is the universal camera system for all types of mounts which are easily adaptable without undergoing surgery. hopefully, I could borrow Douglas' 200/4 FD macro.
It is still a dead mount regarding use on Canon. Using it on a mirrorless system still isn't the same thing as using it on a full frame slr or dSLR.

Those are really expensive lenses to mangle. It seems strange when they can buy Contax/Zeiss lenses for cheaper.
