Canon FD 55mm f/1.2 SSC Aspherical

Hello all,

I am looking for a Canon 55mm f/1.2 SSC Aspherical in the FD mount. I have seen many sample shots of this lens and am in absolute love with the creamy bokeh and dreamy DOF. Also this is probably the cheapest way to get an f/1.2 lens. I am looking to get into the mirrorless game with an EP-3 or possibly OM-D and would love a really fast prime to go along with it. Also, I still shoot film on my Dad's old AT-1 and this would obviously be a huge step up from the 50mm f/1.8 and the other off-brand junk lenses that he got for it in the 70's.

Apparently as well this lens is radioactive due to the Thorium used in the manufacture of the elements. I kind of like the idea of that..

There are a few examples of the lens on Fleabay but I would much rather do business with someone reputable on here. I have a selection of EF-S lenses to offer in trade along with cash or just straight cash would work as well.

It might be a shot in the dark, but if anyone has this lens and would be willing to part with it please contact me!

FYI, it's certainly not the cheapest option to get the 1.2 option. It's actually among the higher priced 50ish 1.2.

Yeah, I am aware that it is a little pricier than the 50 f/1.4 but I would love that extra stop, especially on a M4/3 body. Plus the f/1.2 I have heard is sharper throughout at the same aperture than the f/1.4 as well. It has a different look than most other lenses, a true vintage feel that I wouldn't need to fake when using it on film.

What other f/1.2's are out there would be less than ~$350? I haven't really seen much else that is comparable that I know of anyway..

This lens is not going to be at $350. Expect the lowest to be around $550. The price is climbing quickly these days. I think you might mistake this with the Canon 55mm f/1.2 ssc (non-aspherical). That one would go for less than $350. Good luck.

You are very right, I am definitely mistaken! I actually assumed all 55 f/1.2 SSC's were a spherical but apparently there are multiple versions. The ones I have seen were the non-aspherical version after all. Thanks for the help in clearing that up, I feel a bit like an idiot for not realizing that.
