FD lens for the AE1 Program Digital coming soon :) !

Ken Rockwell recently leaked some link from his site ...
and I am such a AE1 Program fans in the photography club in high school days
(I have 2 working AE1 Program still)

BTW: look at that pancake 10mm f/1.4 lens ... WOW .... yay!

Like Ken's expression "Bravo!"

Hope it is not a hoax

indeed , it looks like someone just modified an old AE-1 program and put the digital part into it

If you look at it, it's obviously just a really cool mod.

Yes it is cool mod indeed... no way Canon goes back to FD
while IS USM can sell for 10x more

Even if this thread was true, at this point I'm far more heavily invested in EF lenses than I ever was in FD lenses.

Re: hack

Exactly, it's just some hack.

Has nobody noticed that it says
"ZOOM lens" on this supposedly 10mm lens??
That's probably the front of some 70-200 f4 lens with some photoshopping.
Was that originally posted on the 1. of April?

Looks like somebody just put a powershot into the body of an AE-1:

And the front part of the image is photoshopped, since it is not shown in the movie.

Or perhaps they took a front ring from some other lens and put it into the front (so perhaps it's not photoshop, but just all assembled from different pieces).
In the movie you can clearly see the 50mm label at the side of the lens.

And microphone is the flash sync. And the zoom button is also not a zoom button.

The photoshopper could have changed the 50mm on the barrel to 10 but didn't...in the 2nd photo you can see that the 0 was removed, leaving it to read 5 mm...why I don't know but really, it could have done better....still, a bit of fun...

Re: hack

it's a hack for sure... but a nice one.

Why cant someone (or even Canon) put a FF sensor in the AE-1 and sell it. Many people would love this, and wont be expensive as it wont have all the bells and whistles, just a lens and "sensor" like the old days.
