Canon Lens FD 35mm f/2 S.S.C.
The once fastest FD mount wide angle lens. Many photographers today prefer the 35mm focal length as a standard lens. The fast maximum aperture of the FD 35mm f/2 S.S.C. Iens make it extremely fast and easy to focus and it achieves outstanding image definition even at full aperture opening. Thorough compensation has been provided to eliminate various aberrations, including spherical and comatic aberrations.
The shift adjustment device consists in moving the optical axis of the lens while it remains perpendicular to the film surface to compensate perspective. The tilt adjustment is used when walls or fences are shot obliquely alligned and the shift adjustment is used for shooting a tall building without the perspective distortion that made it look as though it is leaning backward.
