    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

    p568139305-5.




    p765820336-5.




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

    p560358106-4.

    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.
