    FS: FD 35mm F2 Thorium/Chrome Nose

    Nicest copy I've seen of the FD 35mm F2 chrome nose, near mint. Thorium oxide element(s), concave front element, F16 smallest aperture. Serial #23xxx. Appears to be the 3rd version built approx 1971-73. Stock rear, generic front caps.
    Very sharp wide open with nice smooth bokeh. $345 inclusive of shipping and PP fees. Also includes a decent FD-M4/3 adapter.

    Caution! Radioactive, do not ingest lens

    To add a little credibility to the sale, please see my username in it's various iterations (Thatspeck), on Fred Miranda and most photo forums. Many of you look familiar

    One wide open hand held shot in poor light, bokeh is pretty smooth...

    A few more pics from yesterday. F2, F4, F5.6, and 100% crop of the upper right corner. Horrible light... until spring

    Maybe I'm just missing it but is there no way to edit, delete, or mark a post as sold?

    Reduced a bit $335

    One of the more exciting and rare FD's, from what I recall it compares very favourably to the summicron! Good luck with your sale.

    Thanks Daniel for the luck, it worked!

    Lens is sold

    I'm probably just missing it but is there a way to mark this as sold without bumping it for future reference?
