    Canon FDn 200/2.8 on NEX-7. This lens is a "1st Generation" model...made at the beginning of the improved line of 'NEW' FD lenses in the 80's, it still has the sort of "macro focusing mechanism" instead of the short throw IF (Internal Focus) mechanism. Not as fast focusing for fast action shooting due to the extra physical rotation of the focusing collar required, but like a macro lens, it really allows for fine tune focusing on stationary subjects...had an FDn 200/2.8 IF version but sold it...much preferring this '1st Generation' type focusing for my kind of nature / wildlife shots.
