FD 35mm f/2.0 Test Review
get it used here
This is a pretty darn good manual focus lens.
For some reason some of the glass internally has yellowed on this lens, making it unsuitable for color photography and ideal for b/w.
52mm filter, stops to f/16, focus to about a foot.
All metal construction.
Color balance is severely yellow, making this lens useless for color photography. This is actually helpful for B/W photography if you don't use a yellow filter.
It is very sharp.
Barrel distortion is typical.
Ghosting is OK, I don't recall looking for it or seeing anything that bad.
Forget this for color. It is obviously too yellow. Try a different 35mm lens.
