Canon FDn 135mm f/3.5 is tele prime lens for 35mm SLR cameras Canon with New FD mount.

Using the minimum necessary elements - four, in four groups - makes this lens one of the smallest and lightest of the telephoto group. A practical design and utmost portability plus a very reasonable price make this lens the perfect substitution and good companion if your budget is tight.It was economically priced and is a great alternative to the larger and of course more expensive 135mm f2.8.The above was shot at around f8 ~ f11 which should be the “sweet spots” for most 35mm format consumer lenses. Exposure was determined by partial metering on highlights which is the part of the photo with maximum sharpness.However, at larger apretures, the sharpness degrades just like the high contrast shot below which was taken wide open at f3.5.
