I think your only option is one of the mFT cameras (Olympus or Panasonic)

The problem here is the flange to sensor distance, and for most cameras (if you want to focus to infinity) you will need an adaptor with an addition lens built in, and this degrades the image significantly.

However the very short flang to sensor distance on micro four thirds cameras does allow appropriate adaptors to be designed and these already exist. Of course the FD lenses will only be usable in manual focussing mode, but then they always were
