| p.115 #11 · What is your most recent (alt) lens purchase? |
Today I acquired a few Canons FDn : 28/2,35/2 and 85/1.8 with addition of the 50/4 SMC Pentax M Macro,which is a nice and a very sharp lens.I look around for 24/2.Fast FDn Canons are sharper and contrastier that their f2.8 equivalents,with fewer haze/fringing wo.What is most impressive,they are capable of, under some circumstances, to render images with visible 3D look, similar to the Zeiss glass.I noticed that after having closer look at a few preliminary test shots.
I have found that the FDn's in the f2 range are outstanding performers, as I still own the 24 (two copies; one converted to EF with EdMika adapter), 28, and 35mm. I had tried (twice) the FD 24mm f1.4L years ago, and it could not hold a candle (other than having f1.4!) to the f2 version.
Enjoy the glass as I certainly do; there is life way beyond MTF charts...
