Canon FD lenses images

Recommended Posts

Let us start with an image thread for Canon FD lenses. I start with the Canon Macro FD 50mm 1:3.5

If you are interested in this lens you can find a small review (in german) on my blog: http://aixfotonex.blogspot.de/2015/02/canon-macro-fd-50mm-135.html

Some great images w/ Sony A7 series and FD lenses.  I have the following FD lenses; all great glass:

  • Canon FD 135mm f2.5 Lovely old FD glass!
  • Canon FD 15mm f2.8 Great FD glass! c/w built-in Y3, O1 & R1 filters
  • Canon ssc FD 200mm f2.8 Great FD glass!
  • Canon ssc FD 50mm f1.4 Great FD glass!

And don't forget all those great Pentax, Minolta, M42, Tamron, Sigma, etc. lenses from the 35mm film days that work just fine on the A7 series cameras!

The edit buton is to the left of the report button, it's not in bold lettering so you have to actively search it out. Just run your cursor over that area and it will show up.

Maybe it's because I'm a "Newbie", but I'm pretty sure I don't have that option available.

 

It's good to know that it exists, though. Thank you.

 

 

EDIT: Ok, found it in this post. I'm guessing it's limited by time (which I personally dislike).

I don't think it times out. I think it's that you can't edit

any more once there's been a reply beyond it. Seems

like a good thing for contentious boards, to keep you

honest, unable to alter what you've said once it's been

challenged by a reply. Otherwise, in friendly territory, I

agree that it's annoying.

      My latest project -  low key macro/ close-up flower photography. These were shot using Sony A7ii and Canon FD 50mm f3.5 macro, a single flash (in softbox). Shot at f18 - f22 to get the dark background. Processed in PS and Alien Skin Exposure X3.

      Shortly after getting the Canon FD 85mm f/1.2 L lens to use on the Sony A7 (Fotodiox adapter I think) I decided to take it to the park to see what wildlife I could get. I found some very cooperative squirrels. Unfortunately they were so friendly that they were often too close for the lens to focus (90cm minimum focus distance). This is an un-cropped image.

      I have now tried two copies of Metabones' Canon FD-Sony E Adapter (Part# MB_FD-E-BM1) on my Sony cameras. This adapter fits comfortably on the Sony a6000 body, however on the A7Rii it does not properly fit and to my horror it appeared to scratch the front surface of the lens mount. I have several other Metabones adapters for Sony E (Nikon F, C/Y) that do not have this issue, and generally I find the quality of the Metabones adapters to be better than competing brands - certainly better than the lower end brands, but also better than the Novaflex adapters that cost ~2x as much. This issue brings up two questions:
       
      I wonder if the tolerance on the old Sony E mount is looser than on the updated mk ii lineup (A7II, A7RII, A7SII, a6300). I know that Sony improved the rigidity of the mount in the update, I wonder if anyone else has noticed a commensurate tightening of tolerances (meaning other old adapters may also now fall out of spec).  Has anyone else had issues with the Metabones Canon FD adapter on the mk ii full frame E-mount bodies? As many FD lenses are of low quality I would imagine that these adapters get mostly purchased for the less expensive bodies, but as there are some excellent FD mount lenses available I am hoping that somebody else has tried one of these on an A7Rii. The issue I experienced was unacceptable and I would caution other users to try Metabones adapters in-store before trying to use them on their own kit.
