    Completed/Sold 35mm F2 Thorium/Chrome Nose W/Adapter Reduced!

    Nicest copy I've seen of the FD 35mm F2 chrome nose, near mint. Thorium oxide element(s), concave front element, F16 smallest aperture. Serial #23xxx. Appears to be the 3rd version built approx 1971-73. Stock rear, generic front caps.
    Very sharp wide open with nice smooth bokeh. $335 inclusive of shipping and PP fees. Also includes a decent FD-M4/3 adapter.

    Caution! Radioactive, do not ingest lens :biggrin:

    Beautiful lens! Makes me want to dig out my old A1 and shoot some Kodachrome (sniff)...

    "Do you have a pictures taken with this lens?"

    I will dig through my files this evening and see what I can find. Thanks all for the kind words and info :)

    Edit: Found a pic I liked, wide open hand held though. LR output sharpening on low. Bokeh can be very nice on this one.

    Any interesting trade offers? I've had my eye on an FL 55/1.2 but want one as close to mint as I can find. I'm also looking for a Contax G 45/F2...
