Looking for a eSATA to Firewire converter?

I am buying an external Blu-Ray drive and have been looking at one by OWC that has USB 2.0, Firewire 400, 800, and eSATA connectors. I've really become interested in a drive that is made by Buffalo Technologies and has a USB 2.0 and eSATA connector. The issues are as follows:
-Will USB 2.0 handle the bandwith well or do I really need something such as Firewire or eSATA?
-Most of all, is there an adapter to convert an eSATA connector such as on the Blu-Ray drive to a Firewire connector that I could plug in the front of my Mac Pro?

You're looking at base level protocol changes, not a simple cable swap.mike
