    083e.

    Just bought a FD 24/2.8 and 28/2.0 ... the 24/2.8 is near mint and the 28/2.0 shows a bit of wear but after using the flaws-and-all Fujian I'm really excited about getting a bokeh-licious wide.

    Noticed some slight vignetting on the 28 but nothing like that on the 24 which is really, really superb. I think I've just scratched my Zeiss itch nicely!

    Hope to get some photos this weekend :)

    So the 28mm f2.0 is a tiny bit soft wide open, but sharpens up nicely by f3.5. I'm really really disappointed my copy has some dinks on the front glass (but it was cheap), otherwise this could have become my favorite lens already.

    FD 28/2.0 in color:

    029e.

    038.

    044e.

    056e.

    115e.

    Some black & white with a lot of cheating PP :
    051e.

    074e.

    131e.

    143e.

    And a completely un-PP'd photo to assuage the guilt:
    156.
