    I wanted to get a feel for what kind of interest there is for a 6 lens set of Canon FDs. These are an older rehousing. maybe 20 years old. Not great, but certainly good and on par with a lot of original vintage optics out there. Glass is absolutely outstanding and pristine. I would chalk this up to them being done when there were a lot of great examples left. Panavision has benched them, the 50, 85 and 135 will cover Alexa 65. All others cover LF open gate and Monstro 8K.
    The set has:
    24mm T1.4
    28mm T2
    35mm T2
    50mm T1.2
    85mm T1.2
    135mm T2

    they would come in a nice flight case.

    Like I said, I have always planned on getting them redone, but have just loved using them as they are for the past few years.

    Email me at awehde@me.com if you want to discuss more.

    I am not sure a price because of the demand and also how hard it is to find a good set.

    Obviously they are not the cost of a modern rehousing from GL optics, but I don’t think its free. ha
