I have the FDn 100-300 zoom, the new type, and it's a very good lens but I haven't used it for a long time, the only FD zoom lenses I know that are reputed to be a poor performers are the FD 100-200 and the FD SSC 100-300.
Stop Press I just found this http://greenspun.com/bboard/q-and-a-...?msg_id=005Uvj
On balance I think it might be a good lens to avoid, it's when you start lugging the older FD SSC long lenses about either zoom or prime that you realize that that the newer bayonet type with the polymer barrels were not such a bad idea after all because a bag full of the metal barrelled ones weighs nearly twice as much as the new type, however I can recommend the FDn 100-300 Zoom, and no I'm not wanting to sell mine.
