I am looking forward to get an EdMika Adapter, but first I'll have to get one of these old lenses.
Unfortunately I can't decide if I should seek for the FL 55mm 1.2 or the FD 50mm 1.2L (latter I actually received an offer for..).
Any comments about the IQ (differences) of these two lenses? Thanks in advance.
They're both excellent. The latter will likely be much more expensive. Let's hear how you decide. I'm still thinking about getting one of the conversion gets for these as well. I recently bought his adapter for my FD500 f/8. Fabulous quality.
My guess is that the 50L would be slightly better in image quality ( a friend of mine has it and it is truly outstanding). The 55 is unique just for it's slightly longer focal length and for the placement of the aperture ring. I can totally see reasons to lust after both ;-) Especially if you really are into the 50mm range like I am and like the build and feel of the old FD lenses.
