Canon 55mm F1.2 FD

Bought this lens from Taobao for around £180. Added a Kipon FD-FX adapter, a nice lens hood and away we go. Loving the out of focus backgrounds… Build quality is great. The lens is a bit hefty but not too big on the X-Pro. Can’t wait for focus peaking as that will help a lot.

Wanted to say a big “Thank You” to Alan (English name) who kindly contacted me regarding the lens and advised me on the best forms of delivery, etc. A thoroughly nice chap who deserves recognition.

His taobao shop can be reached here http://shop34969047.taobao.com/shop/view_shop-3723155f63682cf817d64aab4d6a82cb.htm?spm=a1z0b.7.1000329.1.xfPRAH

In Google Chrome, the shop name is translated as ‘Clownfish Grocery Store’ which is pretty awesome!
