The lens is sharp, harsh bokeh. The vignette is pleasing. It sure does flare though! I'll post more stuff near the end of the weekend.

The FD lenses would have been more appealing if I had been into photography before the Micro 4/3 cameras came out - prices have already skyrocketed.
And for my purposes - FD lenses seem nice but the MTF charts are not totally convincing on most of them.
And finally - not to take anything away from the ingenuity of my friends to the north, but various people have manually been converting FD lenses to EOS by replacing the mount in the past. Sometimes it's just replacing a single piece of metal that's needed.
I would imagine that adapting a good telescope would be just as good as the 800mm with 2x & 1.4x extenders. (I would be looking to do Astrophotography and would need huge lenses...) It might be a problem carrying that into sporting events, but more and more places are having problems with a 5DM2 or any DSLR...
