Santa Bear - G1 & Canon FD 50mm f1.4 SSC @ f1.4. Click to see larger
Continuing the holiday theme. My goal for December is that any pictures I post here is holiday related. Shouldn't be too difficult, considering holiday decorations and happenings are everywhere.
As I use the FD lenses more, I have a new appreciation of the old Canon manual focus lenses. Makes me want to sell off all other old lenses and start a FD collection. There are so many of them, and some of them are definitely equal to, if not better than today's modern lenses. This is especially true for the the L series. 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L, 24mm f1.4L, 200mm f1.8L, etc, which are predecessors of today's auto focus EF L lenses. But, these FD L lenses still command a very high premium, probably more so later on as more and more people discover the beautifully made, and optically great FD lenses to use on the Micro 4/3 and NEX cameras.
