    The images looks incredible sharp and contrasty to me. Conglats!

    Looks great. Conglats:wink:
     
  5. Thank you, stingOM. The FD 28mm f2.8 had a few bad reviews in a recent thread so I wanted to make a case for the defence. This model lens is the last of the cheap wide-angle FDs - prices for the 24mm and wider increase significantly, as does the size and weight. These pictures were shot using two samples of this lens with no noticeable differences in output between the two. Biggest issue I have found are significant red/cyan CA

    Any particular reason for using this lens over the 20mm Panasonic? The colours look excellent to my untrained eye, but I'm interested in your reasons.
     
  7. I can't speak for everyone who uses legacy lenses on m4/3, but for someone like me who has only ever used cameras in the digital, auto-everything era, using a completely manual lens makes photography as much about the process of taking the photograph as it is the end product.
     
  8. Lens and camera combination used to take the pictures above for your reference

    First shot with this lens, only had it a couple of days but got my adaptor last night. Typically the weather in the UK has turned crappy so indoor shots only.

    Do you think there is much difference between the nFD and FD versions of this lens?
     
  12. Not sure about any differences in optical performance, but the new FD version is smaller and lighter and you won't need to mess around with a breech lock mechanism to mount it.

    I hadn't used this lens much since I picked up as a package with a 50mm f/1.4, so I put it on the GH2 today and I'm really liking it!

    Got out with the GH2 and the FD 28mm again yesterday ... wasn't feeling it, and it was way too bright out, but I nabbed a few:

    Nice results from this lens. I picked one up with an AE-1 camera and a couple of other lenses. Ordered the FD-M43 adapter from rainbow.

    I like this lens; it's as close to a normal lens you can get in the Canon line.
