There is no real reason why the FD 50mm f1.4 should not take great images. One of the things

These old 50 mm lenses were designed as a cheap all purpose kit lens back in the SLR days.  Compared to their modern counter parts, such as those native m4/3 lenses, the old ones are usually prone to flare, soft wide open, and have harsh bokeh.
