I am using an FD50mm f1.8 and 24mm ext tube with oly M10 for macro. I am reasonably happy with the results, and have posted a couple of images (selected from over 100) of 6 to 8 mm long green tree ants. I think my use of the lens is a technically correct compromise. There is lots of detail but it is not sharp enough to satisfy me. I suffer Lens Lust for the oly FD60mm f2.8 Macro, but it is presently beyond my budget. I am considering buying an FD 50mm f1.4 for around $100.
Can someone help me to decide whether this would be a reasonable alternative.
It would be great if you could rate the FD 50 f1.4 as somewhere between 1 for Nifty Fifty and 5 for the oly 60mm f2.8 Macro.
The FD days are long gone, but I live in hope that some members have long memories.
