Re: Use FD not EF EOS

Even third party FD lenses can be good. I have a $25 Vivitar Series 1 (version 3) 70-210 that is nearly as sharp as any EOS lens I own (and I have several L primes). It suffers from some fringing and lower contrast in some situations, but it is a damn fine lens and can be had for a steal.

I've also got a 55 macro and a 50 1.2 in FD. The equivalent would have cost thousands in any auto-focus mount.
