    Finally a not-so-hazy day and so I took out the newly acquired Canon FD 200/2.8 for a try.
    Very nice results, as expected, it's pretty sharp wide open, getting very sharp at f4. I liked colors and contrast, similar to FD 135/2.8 I have. Another good thing is that, although it's kind of large as a m43 lens, it fits in my shoulder bags. CA is there wide open, at about the same level more or less with other fast legacy lenses I tried.
    Handholding is not ideal, but using VF (on OMD) is not so bad and, of course, IS does wonders :2thumbs:. Feels good to me at about 1/100s.

    Woolworth Building, I believe both at f5.6

    I didn't have a chance to really test bokeh, but it looks pretty good so far

    It was either wide open of just stopped stopped down to get some DOF.

    This one was definitely wide open, in a low light though. I will post some more shots when I get a chance to make them. The thing is, I'm not sure when it happens, my vacation is coming up and this lens will not make the team.
