Photography Museum Lenses: Canon FD Mount

< Back To Photography Museum Lenses

One of the first interchangeable lenses I ever used in the mid 1980s was the Canon FD 70-210 ƒ/4 push-pull zoom. That was a fun lens to use and my dad probably still has it somewhere. When I bought my own used Canon A1 it came mounted with a 50mm ƒ/1.8 and I soon purchased a nice set of used prime lenses from a friend-of-a-friend for an excellent price. I still occasionally use some of these mounted on an FD to EF-M adaptor.

As these lenses were either used to shoot film or on digital bodies but lacking EXIF communication, it is not easy task to identify sample images shot with each lens. I will tackle that project in the future and add samples when I can.
