I hadn't been doing a lot of research just a bit of a cursory scan at some of the smaller and lighter lenses... I figure for slow moving targets and landscapes one of these lenses would be better, I put $10 on a 135mm F/3.5 Canon FD prime. I figure it'll come in handy to try out when I'm hiking and want that extra bit of zoom. The lens itself is only 70mm for a 270mm equivalent F/3.5 that can stop down to F/32.

It should be good for where I want to get more reach to actually get better detail of objects 20km+ (12mile) away.

be prepared "not" to get a lot of detail from objects 12+ miles away.

Nothing to do with glass or camera...there will be atmospheric distortion. the farther the subject is the more atmosphere/distortion inbetween.

also...Yes there are many FD mounts with superb great glass but the adapters are ..hit and miss...
