Hi Bille, let's see some more! I am really interested in the FD 24L but the prices seem to be in the stratosphere. The EF version sells for cheaper. Regardless, Taemo let me know if you're letting yours go...

Beautiful photos!
Now, can we keep this to ourselves...at least until I get my lens line up sorted for my T90...

I don't much care for the looks of the A7, but I sure like the images it produces, and I sure would like a digital option for my trusty FD lineup.

Threads like this one need to be deleted or password protected or whatever because I don't want the already high price of the 24 L going even higher when folks see what it can do!
Great photos. I'm extraordinarily green with envy. I've wanted that lens for maybe 20 years now but have never had the spare cash to purchase one.

Mono-subject pic dump warning. All shot with the FD 24L. Let's just say focusing was a "challenge".

I like the wide angle plus bokeh paradox.

Am I alone in not being able to see whited3's photos? I can see the two with the little boy, but none from the later posts.

A few days ago I purchased the Canon FDn 24mm f/2.0. This was a proactive move to stop me from spending real money.

I'll be the lone dissenter here: terrible bokeh (doubling) and wicked CA. Both to be expected especially when shooting a close subject but the bokeh is particularly distracting.

Forgot this one. I like it even though it's a staged display

For the time being, 24mm seems to be my favorite focal length.


Another with the 24L, of course.
