R6 + FD 55mm f1.2 lens experiences ?
1

At the advent of the mirrorless cameras, vintage lenses are getting more popular as cheap 3rd party adapters can mount these lenses now thanks to the much shorter flange distance. Obviously, modern bright lenses are better, but also way more expensive.

I've seen some youtube videos showing RF bodies with bright FD lenses making nice videos. On ebay they appear to be rather affordable.

Any experiences ?
