Canon 50mm f/1.4 FD Mount Lens

This is an extremely fast lens that features a razor thin depth of field, beautifully unique bokeh, and some of the best light transmission you’ll find. It’s sharp at center wide open and sharp across the frame by f/5.6. This is an excellent walk around lens capable of rendering everything from breathtaking portraits to unforgettable low light photography.
