best canon fd lens for letus35

Hi I`m new about working with 35mm adaptors. I`m thinking of getting a letus35 flip enhanced adapter. It comes with ability to handle either Canon fd or Nikon A1. What are anybody`s reccomendations about which to get. If I were to buy the one that handles the Canon FD lenses what would be a good lens to get to start with?

Hello. Not familiar with Letus Flip enhanced, but with any 35mm adapter, the best lens is an F 1.2 or F 1.4 lens. F2 is good too, I'm using one, but only for outside shots, because it does not allow as many light to enter the lens as the F 1.2, F 1.4 lenses or even the F1.8 ones.

For you the best is an F 1.4, because those adapters that flip the image within the adapter, they lose more light. Hope this helps.
