Fisheye FD 15mm f/2.8 S.S.C.

  Manufacturer Notes:A large aperture full-frame fisheye lens with 180° diagonal angle of view. This lens has the world largest aperture of f/2.8 in its class at the time. This lens is called “full-frame fisheye lens” to distinguish from circular fisheye lenses, which produce circular images that do not fill the entire frame. It will actually focus closer than the minimum focusing distance of 0.3m on the lens scale, enabling closest shooting distance of 0.2m at smaller aperture. As filters cannot be attached to the lens front, four filters, SKY, Y3, O and R are built-in.

FL 19mm f/3.5R

  Manufacturer Notes:A super wide angle lens which allows a photographer to see subject through the viewfinder of a camera. Before this lens, FL19mm f/3.5 was introduced in November 1965, which had the largest aperture in the world at the time as a super wide angle lens for 35mm SLR cameras. Although this lens had great attention from many photographers, the mirror of the camera had to be locked up when this lens was mounted, due to insufficient back focus. A separate optical viewfinder had to be mounted on the accessory shoe to confirm angle of view. The FL19mm f/3.5R was introduced the following year, employing inverted telephoto type optical system to ensure sufficient back focus for mirror operation. Thus this lens could be used without separate optical viewfinder for general use as a super wide angle lens. The “R” in the name stands for “Retrofocus (inverted telephoto type)”.

FD 20mm f/2.8 S.S.C.

  Manufacturer Notes:This is a lens that has taken operability and performance to the next level in response to strong demands from users, such as a mechanism for locking the position of the mount tightening ring, a mechanism for locking the EE mark position of the diaphragm ring, reduced weight, black processing of the front ring, and expanded range and active adoption of multilayer coating. Despite an ultra-wide angle of 20mm, this lens is the brightest in the world at f/2.8, and is a retrofocus type that offers sharp image from short to long distances through the use of a floating mechanism.

FD 28mm f/2 S.S.C.

  Manufacturer Notes:As the compensation of aberrations occurring in large aperture and wide angle conflict, larger apertures were considered to be difficult at wide angles. However, the spread of system cameras has led to wide-angle lenses being used as standard lenses, which increased demand for the development of a bright wide-angle lens with high performance. Canon was already providing the market with a 24mm f/1.4 ultra-wide angle lens by adopting an aspherical lens optical system, but this FD28mm f/2 S.S.C resolves the issue of conflicting aberration compensation by actively adopting new types of glass and appropriate power distribution achieved through new optical design technology. This results in sharp definition at high contrast from an aperture of f/2. By incorporating a compensation mechanism (floating system) for preventing deterioration of images in close shooting, this high-performance large aperture wide-angle lens offers uniform definition throughout the entire frame from infinity to the close distance of 0.3m.

  Manufacturer Notes:This is a wide-angle FD lens developed with emphasis on high performance and ease of use such as resolution, contrast and color balance. Increasing the performance of a wide angle lens generally leads to an increase in overall length, but the FD28mm f/2.8 S.C. resolves this issue through appropriate power positioning of the optical system. This offers high performance satisfying requirements for enlargement of highly magnified images and detailed definition, while also succeeding in reducing size. (I) and (II) are different in their locking mechanisms of their aperture levers. In (I), the aperture lever is fixed in position after it is rotated counterclockwise to its maximum. On the other hand, in (II), the aperture lever is fixed after it is rotated counterclockwise to its maximum and further the clamp is set at the “L” sign.

  Manufacturer Notes:This was the first Canon wide angle interchangeable lens for SLR camera that had the floating mechanism in its optical system. The floating mechanism moves a part of the optical system separated from the focusing lens group to minimize fluctuation of aberrations caused by focusing distance change. A inverted telephoto lens type wide angle lens like this lens, having negative power like a concave lens for front lens group and positive power like a convex lens for rear lens group, tends to have more astigmatism at shorter focusing distance with more extension. The floating mechanism corrects this astigmatism well. This mechanism is named “floating”, because an optical part moves like a float, not in union with the rest of the focusing group. S.S.C., an abbreviation of Super Spectra Coating, is a coating technology developed by Canon to achieve harmonized color balance for all lenses.

  Manufacturer Notes:At the time of the release of this lens, 35mm lenses tended to be treated as the standard lens for snap shooting by professional photographers and ordinary users because of having a suitable wide-angle effect as well as a natural expression of perspective and deep field. This lens was designed with the aim of providing high performance, operability and a unique design able to respond to such demands of the times. Coma aberration and halo are eliminated while good contrast is maintained at full-aperture, in addition to maintaining high resolution throughout the entire frame. It is a retrofocus type with a 6-element in 6-group structure and a concave lens at the front, and that is also extremely compact and lightweight, weighing only 270g.

  Manufacturer Notes:The world first “tilt and shift” wide angle lens for 35mm SLR cameras. The “tilt and shift” mechanism changes relation between the lens optical axis and the film plane to obtain special effects. “Tilting” is used to swing the plane of focus so that it is not parallel with the film plane. You can adjust focus using the tilt mechanism to a very shallow or a very deep zone without change of aperture. “Shifting” is used to correct or enhance perspective distortion, shifting the optical axis from the center of the film plane. The tapering off of the building in the picture can corrected by “shifting” the TS lens easily. The “TS” stands for “tilt and shift”.

  Manufacturer Notes:A Gauss type standard lens for SLR cameras, developed based on the optical theory of S (screw) mount 50mm f/1.8 lens. This lens is applied as a standard lens for Canon SLR cameras from FX to TL, having automatic diaphragm control at full aperture mechanism in it. The automatic diaphragm mechanism remains fully open during focusing and composition to provide a bright viewfinder image, but must be stopped down for metering. It automatically closes down to the aperture setting when shutter button is pressed and automatically opens up again when the exposure is completed. This lens uses mechanical linkage for controlling this automatic diaphragm operation.

  Manufacturer Notes:This is a full-fledged macro lens enabling shooting from infinity to half life-size of the photographed object (life-sized when using a life-size adapter) without accessories. The newly designed optical system completely compensates for faults such as aberrations and reductions in marginal illumination that tend to occur in close-up shooting, enabling sharp and high-contrast expression throughout the entire frame from life-size to infinity. This lens also provides excellent operability by incorporating an information mechanism for full-aperture metering and stop-down metering in addition to a fully automatic diaphragm control mechanism.

FL 55mm f/1.2

  Manufacturer Notes:This lens replaces the FL58mm f/1.2 (released in March 1964) as a lens representative of Canon’s large-aperture SLR lenses. The use of large apertures has become the most widespread in standard lenses used as multi-purpose lenses for general shooting such as landscapes, sport, portraits and close-ups. But lenses in the class of a focal ratio of f/1.2 all shared the design problem of eliminating field curvature and flare at maximum aperture. However, as a result of many years of research and development at Canon, this lens shows striking progress in performance at full aperture like the FL50mm f/1.4II (released in May 1968). The optical system takes the 7-element in 5-group structure and 4 elements using new types of glass are appropriately positioned, sufficiently eliminating high-order spherical aberration and field curvature, while also coming close to completely absorbing the inner reflection that tends to occur in large-aperture lenses.

  Manufacturer Notes:The world first interchangeable lens for 35mm SLR employing an aspherical lens element to achieve sharp definition even from the maximum aperture, was developed together with the highest-end system camera, the F-1 and the best selling SLR camera at the time, the FTb. The ground and polished glass aspherical surface is applied at the front surface of the second lens element. This aspherical lens makes central and peripheral light converge on a single focusing point to correct aberrations. Thus high contrast definition is obtained even at the maximum aperture of f/1.2. The abbreviation “AL” stands for the “Aspherical Lens”.

  Manufacturer Notes:This large aperture telephoto lens completely compensates for aberrations by adopting an aspherical lens optical system and offers high-contrast definition without flare even at maximum aperture. When it was released, this was the brightest SLR 85mm lens with an aperture of f/1.2. Normally, aspherical lenses require advanced design technology and extremely high-precision production technology, making them special lenses with a high price tag. However, Canon has fully utilized the latest technology such as measuring machine using laser light, grinding stones using special materials and electronics technology for controlling polishing machines. By doing so, we have established mass production technology with a precision better than 0.1 microns (1/10,000 of a millimeter) that was considered difficult to achieve even in the laboratory, and this has made it possible to mass produce like normal lenses and provide products to the market at a reasonable price. This was the first 85mm telephoto lens to incorporate a compensation mechanism (floating system) for preventing deterioration of images due to aberration changes in close shooting, while offering high performance at all distances from maximum to a small aperture through appropriate power distribution using advanced design technology and the selection of the appropriate glass material. The lens also exhibits Canon’s own high level of technology such as optimal color balance obtained through super spectra coating of multiple layers.

New FD 85mm f/2.8 Soft Focus

  Manufacturer Notes:This lens enables gradual changes to the amount of soft focus from the normal setting in general shooting. As the amount of soft focus is adjusted after focusing is achieved in the normal setting, the difficulty involved in focusing is alleviated, making the lens more user friendly through the adoption of 1 focusing ring system where focusing is achieved by turning the helicoid ring and soft focus is performed by sliding the ring linearly. Functionally, by changing the space between the front and rear lens groups, the spherical aberration is created on the underside while other aberration changes are reduced, and the effective aperture is maximized to increase the marginal illumination, providing well-balanced soft focus throughout the entire frame. In the normal setting, sharp definition with high contrast is also obtained through good aberration compensation, making the lens useful for general shooting.

  Manufacturer Notes:This is a telephoto macro lens developed as part of the FD replacement lens series. With full-aperture metering and automatic diaphragm coupled, the lens can be used for shooting from infinity to 1/2x (0.45m) without accessories and from 1/2x to life-size (0.40m) when used with the FD50 Extension Tube. As telephoto macro lenses have a long focal length, close-ups can be made without actually approaching the photographed object, increasing the range of applications from those of a standard macro lens to include photographs of ecology of insects and animals and plants in addition to macro photographs requiring lighting. A modified Tessar lens is adopted in the optical system, and appropriate power distribution of the lens is used for compensation of spherical aberration, field curvature, chromatic aberration and distortion, which is particularly important for close-up lenses. Because of this, there is little variation in aberration depending on shooting distance and the lens offers excellent image-forming performance from infinity to life-size. Although macro lenses normally tend to have a large amount of extension, this lens features light and smooth focusing together with a compact lens barrel achieved by incorporating new mechanisms into the helicoid and diaphragm unit.

  Manufacturer Notes:This is a lightweight and compact telephoto lens that keeps the total length to a minimum while having a large aperture with a brightness of f/2. In general, the power distribution of a lens is held to be a key point to maintaining high performance while making the optical system compact. This lens utilizes a new optical system that appropriately distributes power to disperse it throughout the whole, achieving a large aperture through sufficient correction of spherical aberration in addition to being lightweight and compact.

  Manufacturer Notes:With an aperture of f/2.8, this is a compact large-aperture telephoto lens that marks the successful improvement of performance and reduction of weight while being the brightest in this class of telephoto lenses. It was developed based on strong demands from professional photographers working in the press, and new steps taken in the optical system and barrel give excellent operability on par with a small-aperture lens. The various types of aberration that occurred in small and lightweight telephoto lenses have been completely compensated for through the development of new optical systems and appropriate selection of glass materials, resulting in excellent operability in addition to high performance and high resolution.
