    I have the FD 24 2.8 and the 17/4 both are great!

    I find the FD 17 a little bit vignette-y but it is a very nice lens. The 24 is a superstar!

    I agree that the 24 is a superstar, but I never had any problems with the 17.

    So the 24 f/2.8 (SSC or FDn) is preferred over the 28 f/2.8?

    I'm personally a fan of a 28/35/50 trio (plus the 100 for good measure) as that's what I shot on rangefinders

    I have 24 and 28mm F2.8 and they're both good lenses. The 24 is used more frequently as it's the widest lens that doesn't suffer from serious distortion, so handy for street work.

    Living happily with my FD 24mm f2.8 SSC and my FD 85mm f1.2L. 1 for wide group and landscape, the other for some range and outdoor close-up portrait.

    Trying to decide which 50 to keep....

    Any reason to choose the 50 SSC over the FDn? I could keep both, but I don't really NEED both. Just like I don't really NEED the 35-105

    Why not keep both with one as a backup just in case something happens? With the way prices for FD lenses(and most manual focus lenses) going up because of m4/3 cameras, you might end having to pay more in the future.

    Aw shucks.. Good point!

    I didn't take much convincing did it! Haha.

    BTW - I'd be interested in trading my 35-105 for a 24 f/2.8 (either version) if anyone is interested. (I've even got the hood for it!)

    Just picked up the FD 300mm f/4L about a month ago and have been testing it against my non-L. I gotta say, the L is MUCH better in contrast, saturation and sharpness until at least f/8.

    OK, this thread can return to its grave.
