Few seem interested in this lens. Too cheap. Nothing sexy or to rave about in the appearance. Typical unremarkable FD manufacturing.

BUT... It outresolves an A7II sensor easily, and it is quite light as a walkabout lens.

Excellent combination of sharpness and bokeh. The lens is very well corrected for short distances. The field is quite flat.

I recall, in long distance it's not that good, maybe I'm wrong...

Just very important for landscape use.

One of the tipical wide angle lenses jobs

Mine seems fine in this respect but I might need to test it more.

I fully agree and even with the 7R (36 megapixels), IQ is much better than expected, especially taking into account the "democratic" price of the lens. BTW, the breech-lock SC version is mechanically much nicer but slightly bigger and heavier with equivalent optical performances. Even though it only has a single coating (SC), the performance against the light is nearly as good as the multicoated nFD version.

Most probably your lens had a problem. Mine maintains IQ non regarding the distance....

Best regards

Maybe I'll buy one and test it against the SMC Pentax K 28/3.5.

Nice idea. Do not hesitate to add to your test the Minolta md 28 3,5 that is equally cheap if you have one.

I have only the 35/2.8.

I have one but haven't used it years. It's time to take it out again!
