Re: 135mm Legacy Lens opinions wanted

I use a Canon FD 135/2.5, also known as a Bell & Howell lens, since it apparently shipped with some special Bell & Howell Canon kit. Anyway, it's heavy as a brick, but I love it. It's also one of the FD lenses on which you can lock the aperture level so that the aperture ring always works, regardless of whether the adapter is in Lock or Open mode. The built-in sliding hood is nice too.

This is one shot I had handy that was taken with it... indoor in a low light arena.
