Canon New FD 50mm f/1.8 Lens Test

Canon New FD 50mm f/1.8 Lens – ISO 200, 1/200 at about f/2.8

I enjoy shooting with my classic (vintage) lenses on my mirrorless cameras as it reminds me just how special these lenses were and still are. They almost have the same look as a film image. Here I mounted the Canon lens to my Fujifilm X-A10 mirrorless digital camera body using a Fotodiox Pro FD-FX adapter. The X-A10 is a 16.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor camera. I simply set the camera to aperture priority and make a few adjustments in the camera’s menu (manual focus) and start enjoying using your old glass again. If you own a Fujifilm mirrorless digital X-Series camera, here is a link that can get you started. I have no affiliation with Fotodiox other than I like using their adapters.

Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
