Why is this “misinformation” still posted? AJ above pointed out a huge flaw and yet?
The Canon FL 28mm F3.5 has a completely different aperture control ring and location and looks nothing like that FD BL posted
There is not much information on them available, a good clean sample is well worth the value because the distortion and CA control is excellent.
The flagship of the wide-angle line was the 19mm 3.5 and this complimented that line very well as did the 35mm and fast 50mm lenses.
This lens has very pleasing qualities, does very well with landscapes, architecture, and even indoor interior shots
Not once have I centered a shot at any corner ? And if I did would that imply it’s soft in the center then?
If you can’t explain why it is soft in the corners, why would you claim that? Claiming what they cant explain is 90% of opinions out here
FWIW – Here is Canon’s Museum global.canon/en/c-museum/
Lens shown above is a FD series, not a FL series. Here are the two lenses Canon produced in FL series
FL 35mm F 2.5
FL 35mm F 3.5
