Canon FDn 200mm f/2.8 pictures are of my modified Canon FDn lens for mounting on Canon EOS body without any adapter.

Canon US consumer price list effective as of January 1. 1986 lists this lens at $500.00 USD

It can focus to infinity and aperture is functioning in step down mode, it should work with any EOS FF body because rear element is not protruding out of lens EF mount.
