    Surprised there's not sample image of this common lens yet. Here're a few California wildflower pics my wife took yesterday.

    I don't know that it was ever that common.....Canon dumped the FD system (along with all us users) about 25 years ago now, it may be more. I was one of many complainants at the time but Canon refused to support it's many, many customers who were using FD........

    ...........I put some of my FD lenses in a cupboard and got them out two years ago for the NEX.....never bought any other Canon product since and never will.

    I see this is an old thread, and my compliments to all the samples posted using the FD 50mm Macro.

    I just started exploring the Macro world this summer, picked up some used FDn Macro lenses.
    This is simply an arrival test shot with the FDn 50/3.5 to ensure everything worked OK...nothing as pretty as the flowers or the Cicada.
