Canon FD 24/2mm. I don't have any experience but users who buy the concave version seem to love it...

The FD 24mm f/2 has a convex element. I've been trying to find a FD 24mm f/1.4 L that measures up to it at f/2.

You may be referring to the concave FD 35mm f/2 - f/16.

Erwin Puts of Tao of Leica writes ("The lenses were measured on the famous Zeiss K8 equipment and should generate very accurate results"):

"In the age of the great mechanical cameras we must re-arrange the order: Leica had and has the best mechanical mounts, but ​Canon must be very close to what Leica offers in the realm of image quality. Nikon and Zeiss then land on third place." [1]
