Re: FD lenses

The difference between L and non-L FD lenses can be quite slim.  I think the FDn 35/2 and FD 35/2 Thorium Concave versions are both super sharp (though tested on APS-C), comparable wide open to the 85/1.2 L at f2.

To the OP's original question, why not the FDn 24/2 or 28/2?  Both are superb (but pricey these days.  I got my 28/2 for $80 back in the day and now they go for $200 and the 24/2 goes for even more and is much rarer).  The 28/2 has better across the frame sharpness than the 24/2 so I'd prefer that one for speedbooster use.
