Welcome to my auction featuring some of the finest cameras and lenses on ebay. This is the newer style FD 35-70mm 1:2.8-3.5 lens that took over the same lens but the early version had the silver mounting ring and was marked with the famous S.S.C. in red letters which stood for “Super Spectra Coating” which this lens also has. It was introduced in 1979 and has 10 elements in 10 groups with a 8 blade aperture, same as the prior version. This lens looks great with almost no wear showing on the body. Glass is clear, aperture blades dry and responsive. Focus is smooth but the zoom makes a rubbing sound that I can’t put a finger on where it’s coming from, it almost makes me think that there may be some grit under the plastic barrel cover on the exterior of the lens. I shot pictures from all focal lengths including macro and they all were fine. I will post some shots taken with this lens all hand held. Comes with front and rear caps. Remember this is a FD manual focus lens. Film is NOT dead, it still renders some of the highest quality images ever produced as long as the photographer and their lenses do their job. How long digital images will hold their sharpness and color/contrast remains to be seen. And digital cameras are subject to “noise” electronic derogation of the final image. (depends on camera ISO setting etc.) Film images over 100 years old still continue to educate and bring enjoyment to people long after the person behind the camera is no longer around. Enjoy the chance to use a film camera to record your memories that will be around for a long long time! Please check out my other items listed. Ebay has been collecting sales tax on sellers sales, this applies to shipping charges also. They in turn remove the amount charged from the sellers account. So please don’t think I’m the one imposing this charge on you and by no means the one that is making any money on it. Please note: Due to the Pandemic delivery times for your package may take extra time as some Post Offices and USPS Distribution centers are understaffed. Please keep this in mind when waiting for your package to arrive. Thank you.
