Lens Description: Canon FDn 35mm f/2.8 is wide-angle lens with a fixed focal length for 35 mm SLR Canon FDn.rnrnLens pictures are of my modified Canon New FD lens for mounting on Canon EOS body without any adapter.rnrnIt can focus to infinity and aperture is functioning in step down mode, it should work with any EOS FF body because rear element is not protruding out of lens EF mount.rnrnModification was done by me with simple tools, only power tool was Proxon mini drill on stand to bore screw holes in EF mount. I will not go into process of modification because it is not right place for it. Price of modification is less than 15$ and 20 work hours (because i did it all by hand). Reason for modification was that lens was sitting in a box and I was not willing so sell it for peanuts (or buy MSLR just to use it ) and as memory serves it was a decent lens in film era.rnrnAll data is relevant for FD 35mm F/2.8 lens with New FD mount.
