FD 85 1.2L on EOS R test

Just picked up a new FD 85 1.2L and this one is substantially sharper and clearer than my other one. It appears to be in like new condition aside from some dust on the inside.

Performance at f/1.2 is great. The only drawback of this lens is CA and some bloom in strongly backlit subjects. Oddly it seems to be better corrected at different focal distances. Up close at maybe a head shot distance it is well corrected even in the out of focus areas. Nearer to infinity it also appears well corrected.

In the full resolution image below I focused on the reddish brown tree in the center of the frame at f/1.2...

Only corrections on this image are standard sharpness adjustment in Lightroom and a +10 contrast and slight dehaze for the landscape/sky.
