FD 20mm f/2.8 S.S.C. Test Review
get it used here
Canon FD 20mm f/2.8 S.S.C.
NEW: How to Use Ultrawide Lenses 11 August 2008
This is a pretty darn good manual focus lens.
72mm filter, stops to f/22.
Push-on stamped metal lens cap.
All metal construction.
S.S.C. just means it's multicoated.
It is very sharp.
Barrel distortion is typical; maybe less than the Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 (all versions) or the Nikkor 17-35/2.8 at 20mm.
Ghosting is OK, I don't recall looking for it or seeing anything that bad.
Buy one. I would. I have no idea why people pay almost as much as a new AF lens ($400) for these old manual lenses completely incompatible with any modern camera, but they do.
