    Slowly I am working through my FD lenses, the 135mm 2.5 is one great lens. I think I like it more with the EP=2 than I did with the F1 and FTb film cameras!

    Testing my "new" Canon 135 f/2.5

    Just bought a nice used copy of this lens from B&H for $89. Looking forward to testing it out more but so far I really like the image quality I am getting with it on my EPL-1.

    I just got one of these today--it was $45 on eBay. I'm really having to work to keep it steady--the equivalent of a 270mm/2.5 is great, but it's going to take some work. I don't have any worthwhile pictures yet, but here are two 100% crops: f/2.5 and f/8.

    If I may ask, what adapter do you use for your m43 system? And does this adapter works on all Canon FD lenses? Thanks

    Canon legacy FD lenses use FD to M43 adapters. You can find them on Amazon or eBay.

    CalGuard F-16's were doing touch-'n-go's today, but by the time I was in position, this guy had chased 'em away. Good position, though, this is uncropped with the Canon 135, so I'll get the F-16's one of these days. :cool:

    What and how can I do this and does it affect the quality of the picture?

    I'm referring to the lenses on my eyeglasses, which turn dark in sunlight, making it very difficult to see the LCD.

    I've since bought the VF-2 viewfinder, which makes focusing a lot easier in sunlight.

    Hey guys and gals. I took this image last week here in Dublin, Ireland with my G2 and an old 135mm fd lens. It's been cropped and processed maybe a little too much. Hope you like it.
    Edit! I've just added a few more images taken in Phoenix Park, Dublin. The second last image could have been a 28mm fd

    This lens is now one of my absolute favorites. It is sure sharp enough for my use. Pic is about F/4
