Urban and abstract photography using classic lenses: Canon FD 100mm 2.8
The Canon FD 100mm 2.8 is the first vintage Canon lens I have tried. Come to think of it, it is the first ever Canon lens I used. Period.
I have read a few bits and bobs about Canon’s FD range and I took this out for a spin around the city centre in Glasgow.
I enjoy using these telephoto primes as the lend themselves perfectly to a more abstract style of photography - something I seem to be continually pulled back to no matter how I much I try to move on to something new
The lens itself was light and responsive. Even when using a fairly chunky K&F adaptor the FD 100mm 2.8 sat nicely on my Fujifilm XT2 and felt comfortable in the hand.
The focussing was silky smooth - although I did miss focus on a few occasions but I will put this down to user error and the fact I was scurrying around eagerly searching out compositions. The aperture rings clicks nicely in to place. Overall the lens is a joy to use.
