Canon Reference Lens
Up for your consideration is this excellent Canon NEW mount FD 50mm f/1.4 manual focus prime lens for Canon FD mount film cameras. Has the SSC coating like the older Breech mount version. Made in Japan, this comes with the front and rear caps as pictured. 8 blade aperture is nice and snappy, free of any oil and works flawlessly. Focus is smooth and tight like it was when new, aperture clicks positively like it should, cosmetically I'd rate this a 9++. Glass is excellent with no fungus or haze. Excellent fast and sharp prime lens.
This is an amazing lens to own, edge to edge sharpness is fantastic, the bokeh this lens is capable of is legendary.
A bit about this lens
New FD 50mm f/1.4
In spite of additional improvements over its famous predecessor, the lens has remained compact and lightweight. It weighs a mere 240 grams. Its high resolution and high contrast are achieved by using high refraction index glass and a method for distributing lens power that suppresses spherical aberration and off-axis halos. The lens' renowned color balance is the standard for all other Canon FD interchangeable lenses
The 50mm f/1.4 lens was used for optical measurements at various public institutions and is also the standard which determines color balance for the rest of the nearly 60 lenses in the FD series. Perhaps instead of "standard", a more accurate name would be "reference" lens.
Canon's standard lens are excellent for a number of reasons; suitable for low light shooting situations, offers greater flexibility to choose faster shutter speeds with their fast maximum apertures and focusing in dim lighting conditions is another advantage with their bright viewfinder images. also due to the larger apertures concerned.
