TLS CANON FD - FULL FRAME

True Lens Services rehoused Canon FDs offer full frame vintage coverage in a robust modern housing.

The Canon FD range is often referred to as the cousin of the famous Canon K35 due to a similar look and feel. However, the larger Canon FD range allows for an expanded focal length set to be utilised on shoots.

True Lens Services have developed a cam driven focus system alongside the chassis style lens housing that allow matte boxes and other accessories to be attached to the front of the Canon FDs, without affecting focus movements. The benefit of zero backlash and image shift give accurate dual focus scales that repeat on direction and change with the cam drive system, giving wide spread and even markings throughout the distance scale.

The rehousing also replaced the original 8-blade iris found in the Canon FDs with a 16-blade iris that replicates those in the Canon K35 lenses.

With a fast 24mm T1.5, 50mm T1.3 (55mm T1.3 in the SSC set) & 85mm T1.3 our expanded set is bookend with the wide 14mm T2.9 and the long 200mm T2.9 allowing for a full set of 10 lenses to be offered up for hire.

The Vision House offers two sets of Canon FDs – one is the older style Super Spectra Coating (SSC) variation and the other is the ‘new’ FD (FDn) variation.

Both sets display the classic FD look with the SSC version being ever so slightly softer due to the older coatings but apart from that there is minimal difference between the two kits.

The SSC barrel marking was removed by Canon on the later ‘new’ FD lenses but the SSC remained a key part of the FD look with the FDn keeping the same coating as the older models to keep the FD look and feel.

A 14mm FD T2.9 offers a wider option that can be hired out with either the SSC or FDn kits.

We also offer a custom 35mm T1.5 FD-X that can be swapped into replace the Canon FD 35mm T2.1 upon request at booking. The FD-X is a Minolta base glass that has been specifically selected to integrate with the FDn range allowing for a more consistent speed complimenting the 24mm T1.5, 50mm T1.3 & 85mm T1.3 while maintaining a consistent FD look.
