“In 1982 Canon released its last lens off the FD production line, and they did not disappoint. The 50-300 f/4.5 L was Canon’s first super zoom with a 6x ratio. They used 2 special UD low dispersion/low diffraction elements to control chromatic abberations in their 16 element/13 group design. Canon’s original 4 group optical system meant this lens was rather simple to service and therefore a good candidate for rehousing.

Genuine Canon S.S.C. coatings ensure this full frame zoom will match well with Canon K35 and FD prime lenses…making it the prefect companion to these popular lens sets. However, thanks to its character rich image, the Canon FD 50-300 will also cut together well with any vintage lens sets from the 70’s and 80’s (Leica R, Olympus OM, Nikon, etc.) The bold flares, pleasant bokeh, and gentle fall off make this zoom lens a much needed addition to any rental house.”
