'Old' FD lens on AE-1greenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread
I have a FD lens that does not have the 'A' setting on the aperture ring. I am considering purchasing an AE-1. Question: Will I be able to use this lens on the AE-1 in 'auto' mode? If so, how? Thanks in advance for your help...

No, if it doesn't have the A setting, you can't use it in any automatic mode. But some older lenses had a green O rather than an A.

As far as I know all Canon FD lenses (exept the rare TS - tilt and shift - lenses and mirror lens(es)) should have the auto-position (A or o).
