FD 135/2 - and vs EF 135L


The FD 135/2 is an interesting proposition since they can be bought for next to nothing. Conversion is easy (not rear element to play with), no mirror issue whatsoever on EOS. Only trick is to link the aperture mechanism, just like any other FD. Integrated hood is handy, and IQ is OK as far I can tell. I miss the EF 135/2 for a genuine comparison. This copy was made in 1989 BTW.

On 5DMkII






Taken with the lens at f/2. Focusing is tricky ...






First pic, just to see how smooth the bokeh was.






Sharpness "test", original pic, probably at f/5.6 or f/8.






100% crop (21MP)
