    ...or cheaper is the Tamron SP 28-70, which is very good, and indeed it's difficult to get it wrong as:- the computer screen, consumer printers, Photoshop and add ons, scanners, have equalised the results from many lenses.

    I like the 35mm 2.8 New FD. Sure, it would be nice to have f2 or the 1.4L but the 2.8 has better performance all over and is considerably less expensive in price and weight.

    Andrew the FDn is a very good lens I have owned and used one for more than fifteen years but since I got the Chrome nosed 35mm f2 Thorium lens I have never used it, and I also have the newer FDn 35mm f2 and aperture for aperture the chrome nosed lens ,(mine was made in 1971) outperforms all of them .

    The 800/5.6L goes for ~$1k.

    Not quite the lens youre after... but its a unique oppurtunity to have such a high quality and fast supertelephoto inexpensively.

    The rear barrel could also be shortened if you ever wished to convert it to other mounts.

    This thread kinda rattle my brain, I remember I have an old 35 FL 2.5 which I haven't used for a long time. I'm going to get it out and use it.
