I really like the Canon 24mm f/2.8! I have seen FD 24mm f/2.8, FDn 24mm f/2.8 and FD 24mm f/2.8 SSC but what is the difference between these?

How is the Canon FD 24mm f/1.4 L compared to these lenses?

Faster obviously, the f1.4 version has an aspherical element to better correct coma and distortion.

i wouldn't really say its an ideal landscape lens as the extreme corners on the slower lenses will probably be better, but for shooting an event it is great.
