Vintage Canon 135mm f2.8 FD mounted on Fujifilm XT20

Picked this older classic lens up on eBay from a trusted Japanese seller, and much to my delight it arrived in less than one week. Price was about $150 including postage. Compared with many modern lenses this is an absolute bargain and gives me a field of view of about 210mm on a full frame equivalent. Mounted to the XT20 using focus peaking its easy and fun to focus, however some practice is required for faster moving objects and people. To reach effective anti shake you need to use shutter speeds for at least 1/180 or higher and have reasonably steady hands and stance. The colour from this lens are sublime. Hope you enjoy these photos. Most were edited jpegs in LR mobile.
