Both the FD 80-200mm lenses featured here have a zoom ratio of 2.5x. It is easy to differentiate them apart as the L-series type uses the single push/pull ring while the older lens uses the twin-ring zooming. The newer 80-200 mm f/4.0 L lens was one of the rare FD zoom lens that encompasses some of the best in optical designs and lens construction from Canon. It was made available very late indeed in the mid-'80s where Canon itself is going through some transitional changes from FD to a trial EOS stage. The (new) FD 80-200 mm f/4L's arrival was rather very late but it carried with Canon's highly rated "L" series lenses designation. It is a medium power telephoto-Zoom lens, uses combination of fluorite and UD glass elements (1 each) to achieve sharp images by suppressing spectral aberrations. A built-in full range macro mechanism facilitates macro photography at 3.1 feet (maximum 0.32x magnification). It has a one-ring, direct zoom system, and is lighter and shorter than its predecessor, the FD 80-200 mm f/4.0. This lens has been amazingly REMOUNTED to EF, DECLICKED AND with a CUSTOM LENS CAP from Ron Sim of Simmod, in Indiana. The lens's FOCUS, and IRIS have been GEARED by the very Sean McCurry at Follow Focus Gears in Georgia... **Who, for the first time ever, learned how to ENGRAVE F-STOP MARKINGS. He did this, for the first time into every one of these lens's iris rings and matched them appropriately to their LIGHT MEASUREMENTS. Way to go above and beyond, Cap'n. The iris turns past F16, F22 or F32 on all of the lenses, in this set, except the 50mm f3.5, 55mm f1.2 and the 135mm f2.0. Be careful when turning not to turn it past that point, otherwise it won't be adjusting exposure, accordingly. Ron Sim informed me that those connecting the iris to a follow focus should be careful. This is because the iris turns past it's "most closed" point on most of these lenses. My advice is, if you do connect the iris to a follow focus, you will need to manually calibrate the follow focus to know that the end of the iris is where it is, and not where the lens turns to. That would tear at the iris ring. So the iris ring is for reference and the knowledgeably careful. Turning the whole iris turn on a follow focus is bad for the lens and it isn't good to have that part in the focus puller's calibration either. So please leave that part of the iris turn for all practical purposes. These lenses all have 77MM INNER DIAMTERS and 80MM OUTER DIAMTETERS. So you can easily attach and swap 77mm variable nd filters between these lenses and you can attach an attachable mattebox such as the Misfit Atom to all of these lenses.
