Canon Chrome Nose FD 50mm F/1.4 Fast Prime Lens with Canon B S 55 Lens Hood for FD Mount (AE-1, A-1, Etc.) or Modern Digital Cameras
Here we have a fantastic chrome nose version Canon 50mm F/1.4 FD lens with Canon BS-55 metal bayonet lens hood, plus front and rear lens caps.
The lens is in very fine cosmetic condition and is mechanically perfect. The aperture blades actuate quickly and are free of oil, while the glass elements are clean and free of haze, fungus, markings, and balsam separation. The focus ring spins perfectly, and the aperture ring clicks precisely. The mount and filter threads are in excellent condition.
This 50mm fast prime lens is optically fantastic and will make a wonderful addition to any film or digital photographer's gear collection. The standard 50mm focal length is a perfect focal length for a massive variety of photography, including street photography, portraits, snap shots, architectural shooting, landscapes, and more.
The lens has a fast maximum aperture of 1.4, allowing stellar performance in low-light and available light shooting situations. This makes it ideal for nighttime, street photography, and other challenging situations. The lens is capable of making very beautiful Bokeh when shot wide open, and stopped down it becomes incredibly sharp.
This lens will naturally fit onto any Canon SLR with an FD mount, but just as important, it will also mount to many DSLR, mirror-less, and micro 4/3rds cameras through the use of inexpensive and capable lens adapters. Cameras commonly used with these legacy lenses include the Fujifilm X series and Sony's A7, and Alpha models.
