FD 1.2 lenses (55mm and 85mm) for R6: experiences ?

I have found that the vintage MF bright f/1.2 FD lenses are available for reasonable prices. Added $30...$50 for an FD => RF adapter makes it not uch more expensive.

I've seen Youtube videos taken with this combination (an R class body with a bright 1.2 FD lens) and they look very well.

Does anybody here have any experience ?
