Canon FD 28mm f2 on GH-2...a good lens?

Recommended Posts

Newbie user.
Just got the GH2 book.
Didn't see the Canon FD 28mm f2 lens noted in the book.
Any reason why it's not listed?
Anyone use the 28mm on the GH2 and had good results?

Thanks!
Bill

Good question. I prefer the FD 35mm F2. Just prefer the look. It is a subjective thing really. The slightly longer focal length does make a difference on the GH2, and makes for a shallower DOF at F2, when you want it. The minimum focus distance on it is also very good.

And I prefer to pair 35mm with my anamorphic lenses like Iscorama, on APS-C and GH2, because 28mm is slightly too wide and my Iscorama begins to vignette too much.

You might find the 35mm has less distortion too. The 28mm is a wide angle on full frame, the 35mm slightly less wide and so less challenging optically to get the distortion down.
