    I use Nikon and Canon manual focus systems and the FD 24mm F2.8 is a very sharp lens. I'd happily print up to 16 x 12" gallery pics on fibre based paper from it. One myth that never rang true is Nikkors being 'contrasty'. Maybe compared to a screw thread Leica lens, but no more so than other SLRs and nothing that wouldn't be lost in development or print grade difference.

    The high-contrast legend may have originated in 60s fashion shots when Nikon was king and punchy was the look people went for?

    Let's not forget that Minolta and Olympus have great glass too.
