    Canon FL 58mm F1.2
    Glass is in amazing condition for a lens this old and body is better than most you will find. Only a few of the sharp edges are getting bright. Virtually no dust internally and only the slightest yellow tint has developed which is of course removable with UV exposure. The tint attributable to the thorium oxide glass element(s). There is some oil on the blades so they are not snappy but for the alt user this will be a non issue. All FL's have a dual ring aperture stop down mechanism, a bit hard to describe but easy to use in practice. I'm not seeing anything in my files that I can pinpoint is from this lens so I'll have to take more and add later. That's the trouble with alt stuff, no exif ;^) I can recall that it's pretty sharp at f1.2 but starts to deteriorate as you get closer to minimum focus distance. Well known for it's dreamy bokeh, VERY smooth, arguably none better
    Works with any standard FD adapter to Nex or M4/3.

    Looking for a Contax G 45/F2 to trade towards.

    Added three pics at F1.2, F2, and F4. This is near MFD.
