The Canon FD 28 mm f/ 2.8 is a wide-angle lens for Canon FD SLR cameras.
It is incompatible with the modern Canon EF bayonet mount because of its construction and flange focal distance.
There were two versions of the lens. The specifications of the second version (as of 1977) are given bellow.
The first variant of the Canon FD 28 mm f/ 2.8 (1975-1977) was notable for its slight changes in the frame construction, greater weight (280 g) and length (49 mm).

Scared Father Autor: Cezary 4.67 0 1472 Nuclear Power Plant Autor: Cezary 4.33 0 904 Owner reviews: Canon FD 28 mm f/ 2.8 Period of use: 60 months Strengths:
Typical FDn: good contrast, small and light, and overall decent IQ (I'd give it a "B").
Typical Canon propensity to flare badly. Very plastic build that of good quality, but lacks the nice tactile properties of most of the competing lenses. Flimsy FDn metal stamping in the lens mount, but that's ok for a lens this short and light.
I'm reviewing the FDn version. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing compelling about it either.
