 For sale is a most exquisite and unique Canon FD 55mm f1.2 SSC with original caps and original leather case.

Well, if we are to talk about lenses and beauty, this is perhaps one of the most intriguing lenses ever produced for the 35mm cameras. It comes from my personal collection and if I were to praise it, I would say that one in a similar condition would maybe come up only once in a lifetime. It is practically unused with minimum signs of wear, extremely clean, the glass is flawless (if one or two microscopic dust spots are present, it's only to compliment the beauty of old age), focusing is smooth, all is perfect working order. The leather case shows some minor signs of use, but let's not forget that it is what kept this lens in such a fabulous condition, just take a look at the pictures.

Now, let me tell you about the absolute divine quality of this lens. Imagine that this 1978 lens will offer a magical, punchy, unforgettable image that you will always remember, what is actually most interesting is the fact that you may say that this lens has a personality. Canon just lost this along the way, nowadays lenses no longer have a personality. Try to use in very low light, or difficult, contre-jour situations, lateral light, it will react to your thoughts and style in an incomparable manner. It's hard to describe the feeling and the magic of this lens, you will have to try it for yourself. I don't want to lead you  on, please take a look at the random samples that I've added, pictures 2,4,7 to see how it behaves on film and picture 10 to see how it behaves on Micro 4/3. In picture 5 you may see how well it looks on the famous Canon F1 new (not included in the auction), it knocks you over. :)

Let us not forget that beside the fabulous old school film photography, you may also use this lens on the new digital cameras: Olympus/ Panasonic Micro 4/3, Sony Nex, Nikon J1/V1, Pentax Q, without having to worry about format coverage as this is a 35mm lens.

What I have to say is enjoy this beauty and get out there and explore the magic that is will give you. You will thank me for it, don't miss it.

Please take a good look at the 11 pictures and feel free to ask any questions, I'm here to help you.
Please note that old lenses do not require glass cleaning unless there is something really wrong with the image results. Extensive cleaning of the glass surfaces will damage the lens surface and you will most likely regret it. Be careful about this, it's good advice! :)
Returns are, of course, accepted, but please do not abuse of this, read the description thoroughly and ask any questions.
Please remember that even if the lens is a wonderful condition, it is still almost 50 years old.
Please note that only the lens and lens shade are included in the auction, I have no caps for it.
After the auction ends please make the payment as soon as possible, this way I can ship straight away.
Please be so kind to make the payment within 5 working days since the auction ends.
The shipping cost is higher because I want to make sure it gets to you fast and safe.
I can also offer more expensive and faster shipping services (DHL, TNT), please let me know if you are interested.

Happy bidding and good luck!

PS: Please take a look at my other photo items!
