ok guys need some help here... I bought an analog Canon AE1 body only.

Which FL primes got the best of IQ? I am now experimenting with films... I'm going back to the old days.

USE FD lenses, the FL's were much older. The "L" lenses are excellent, of course.

I really liked my 50mm f1.2 and 200mm f2.8 (the newest model with rear focusing).

The 70-210 was rated very high - rugged and very sharp at all focal lengths. Also liked the 50, f/1.2 lenses, and 28, f/2.8.

I used them on the AE-1 and EF bodies.

I love my FD 85/1.8 on my F1. Great portrait lens with great Bokeh.

The 85 F1.2 was spectacular. Like the current version it is heavy with a large front element, but at least you can focus it manually very quickly. Gorgeous bokeh and IQ
The 35-105 F3.5 (fixed aperture) zoom was very good for an all purpose walk around lens, one of the best zooms of the time.

I agree with the suggestion of the 35-105mm f3.5 with the fixed aperture. This was one of my primary lenses along with the 70-210mm f4 throughout my Canon FD days (about 20 years!). There is another 35-105mm with a variable aperture. It does not measure up to the fixed aperture model.

I still have a 28 f2.8, 50mm f1.8 and 135mm f2.8 that I have hung onto, along with my AE-1, for sentimental reasons as they were my first FD lenses.

It is too bad that AE-1 doens't work with Canon EF lenses. That forced my to get the 35 mm Canon K2 which allows me to get all the EF lenses that I'm currenlty using in my D-SLR. Still the AE-1 is a fantastic film camera.

Here some samples I took with my Canon K2 and the EF Fisheye lens attached.

Dude are those from FILMS? I was thinking these have a lot of DR... I doubt any digital SLR will be able to reproduce this in one frame.

from sun\clouds to the bridge's underneath got details.

Yes, 35mm film. The Canon K2 is pretty accurate handling exposures. but also 50% depends on who scan the negatives into CD, and at what resolution and what exposure. If the negative scanner is not setup properly the images can be under or over exposed. And that happens sometimes. And when that happens it totally ruins my photo work.

Some local developing companies really dont care too much about the scanning quality. Sometimes the images come out scanned with a lot of dust.

I recommend to any person interested in shooting with film to get a good negative scanner. I've been researching and the Pulstek 7600 seems to be a good option.
