Question using old canon lenses on digita lcamera?

An old friend gave me VINTAGE CANON AT-1 camera with FD type lenses.The optical quality of the glass is super.
I have read in some CANON blog that the lenses can be used on Panasonic micro 4/3 bodies. I do not own this type of camera.
Can anybody tell me of his trial of this pairing? I know one loses the AUTOFOCUS, but will the auto exposure work? do you need an adapter?


many thanks
RONILAN
