FD 55/1.2 AL ( ASPHERIC)vs FDn55/1.2L

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

Does anyone have experience using any of these lenses? Comparison between the FD and FDn lenses?

I have one of the later 55 f/1.2 Aspherics built in '79. I have not been able to compare it the 50 f/1.2L and posted that I was interested in any differences. One response I got was that the lenses were very similar but that the 55 f/1.2 Aspheric gave more contrast than the 'L' version.

FWIW, over the years a few of the 55 f/1.2 lenses came up locally but I'm glad that I waited for the Aspheric. It does have better contrast and resolution at full aperture and is not as warm as the 55 f/1.2
