Testing my Canon FD 28mm f3.5 lens from 1972. Using a Fotodiox FD-FX adapter on my Fujifilm X-A10 mirrorless digital camera.

I typically enjoy using wide-angle lenses (24-28mm) on my 35mm SLRs so it’s natural for me to feel comfortable using them with my mirrorless digital camera. I believe I have good contrast without it being too contrasty. Ideally shooting at f16 on a sunny day will produce the best DOF so critical focussing is not necessary (but helpful).

It’s fun shooting with vintage glass on a modern digital camera. I highly recommend it if you haven’t given it a try.

Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
