I see many of you have mentioned how the FD 50/1.4 is a better lens than a 1.8 version. Do they really have that much of a difference in IQ? The 1.4 doesn't cost much more than the 1.8 but if their picture IQ is similar, I don't see why I want the 1.4 instead.

Based on having owned several of both 50s -- I worked full time with Canon FD for 12 or 15 years back in the 1970s and '80s -- I would recommend the 1.4. If you have a choice, go for the later model FDn with the twist-on mount, or at least go for an S.S.C. model in the older mount. The newer coatings do seem to make a difference.

After 40 years of Canon and Nikon I'm now using a camera named after my toaster.
