    Just got the Canon FD 70-210 F4 off ebay for $30, can't wait to play around with this one :)

    Sweet find!

    I admit I don't use my OM Zuiko 75-150mm/4 very often, but I do love using it whenever I bring it out! I imagine it should be a similar experience to your FD Canon 70-210/4, though you've got quite a bit more range in yours. :D

    Yeah there are some nice FD lenses around. For zooms also try to find the Canon FD 35-70mm F4. Its not bad. I prefer primes, but I have played with a Nikon 80-200mm f4 a bit...

    @f8 and 200mm


    I really need to try it out with a focal reducer.

    I have the FD 70-210 and the 80-200. Have used the 70-210 on my previous camera (Fuji XE1) and my EM5 and really like the lens. It's not that heavy and pretty easy to use. I prefer the 70-210 (is why I bought it back in my film days to use over the 80-200) because focus and zoom are on the same ring (the 80-200 uses two rings). You should enjoy it, I know I do.
