Re: Impressive glass from 1987

Much old glass is impressive because lead rules in optics. Sadly its deadly too.

Took almost ten years to match the performance of the glass (meanwhile other things improved). Think Canon now overall has glass that outperforms the old lead optics. But it was a long struggle.

Allowed for amazing lenses such as the 200mm f/1.8. What a beast in every way!
