    Best 35mm FD lens for Canon

    The first version of the 35/2 FD SSC (chrome mounting ring, black front) has the concave front element and has an element containing thorium. The second version of the FD SSC (chrome mounting ring, black front) has a convex front element and does not have any elements with thorium. Someone mentioned lithium. I think you meant lanthanum.

    The earliest versions of this lens have chrome noses and mounting rings, and are not marked S.C. or SSC, all the versions that stop down to f22 have the Thorium element.
