Re: My baby

Too bad about the lens iris being stuck, FD lenses are a bit of an odd duck in that the aperture lever needs to be pushed while the lens is mounted for the aperture to work, is the adapter pushing the lever? There may be a ring on the adapter that you turn to engage the lever(most FD lenses will hold the aperture lever if you push it all the way up, nFD being the exception).
As for servicing the lens, it's one of the easier ones to work on.

I too agree that the closer eye is typically the best one to focus on, and stopping down to f2 or 2.8 would bring more of the face in focus.
