Interesting, my opinion is completely different to yours, I also had the Canon new FD 50/1.4 and the Zeiss  planar 50/1.7, I find the FD output quite flat and I don't think it is sharper than the Zeiss Planar. The FD lens is my least like Japanese lens. I had a number of Canon FD lens and I sold them all.

I wonder about sample variation.  The first FD 50/1.4 I had was quite disappointing, and I sold it.  The second one I picked up was like a different lens entirely.  I have had similar experiences with other legacy lenses, so I wonder, maybe it's all a crap shoot, and maybe it doesn't matter what kind you get, as long as it's a decent type to begin with.
