Canon FD Lens w/ LT Recommendations
11 months ago

Was looking to pick up a Canon FD 50mm to use with Lens Turbo

Is there a big difference between the 50mm 1.4 and the 50mm 1.8 once stopped down to f/2?

The 50mm 1.8 either breech of bayonet mount are around the same price.  Was thinking the bayonet mount would be better to use with a 52-49 stepdown ring to use my 49 mm filters and can still use the original hood.  Or would it be better to get the breech mount with 55mm threads and get a 55-62mm setup ring and use my 62mm filters and 62mm screw in hood?
