Best 35mm adapter for sony hdr-fx1e

Hello everybody. I apologize if this has been asked many times before but I can't find the posts. :)
I would like to know what is the best 35mm adapter for my fx1. Of course it has to be cheap, like the letus35. I can't afford the P+S... :-P
Thanks very much, guys!

The SGpro will be released next month, which will be ready to run with the FX-1.

Thanks for the reply.
Is the SGpro the only option?
Does the letus35 also work on the fx1?

Only users of the units can answer that.

Ok... so what kind of lenses can you mount on the adapter? I found that the canon fd mount is not the same that the eos SLR series has (i'm planning on buying an eos 350d).
Do you recommend to use an adapter or to buy a fd compatible lens? What kind of lenses do you use, Andrew?
Sorry for my ignorance but I'm kind of new to this :)
Thanks!!

EDIT: I read that usign the adapter doesn't really work. Doesn't the letus 35 work with EF lenses?
And what kind of mount the SG35 has?
Thanks again!

In short yes, the fx1 will work with sg35. have tested it with the z1, which is the same thing.

Ok, good to know. But I was referring the sg35 lens mount, to which you attach the 35mm lens.
Thanks!

The SGpro will support Nikon or Canon FD lenses.

SG35 - I'm very happy with mind.

Since Wayne's modesty seems to be preventing him from tooting his own hor, let me do it. I am an SG35 owner; probably one of the first.

In short, I love it. There are a few minor problems, and it took longer to receive thatn I would have liked, but the overall operation is as promised, or better. It's a good design and a well constructed mechanism. Also, Wayne is very repsonsive to questions and problems.

For the record, I've read good things here about the Letus and Redrock 35 also.
