Looking to purchase a legacy 50mm F1.4 lens but I am not quite knowledgeable on them. It seems like there are different versions of them like the SSC, mark I, mark II....which one will be the better choice out of the 50mm F1.4 line?

FD lens won't fit EOS without an adapter which has a glass element which makes it act like a weak teleconverter. The quality is poor. You would be better looking for a Pentax or Nikon lens which can be adapted easily.
