Model Reviewed: FL200mm f/3.5
Strength:

Crisp. Built-in depth of field preview button. Excellent feel to aperture and focus. Sturdy. Built in telescoping sunshield. Focuses down to 2.5 feet. Takes nice 400mm pictures with a 2x teleconvertor, although you lose two F stops.

Weakness:

Big, heavy. (6.5" long by 58mm diameter) Aperture setting does not feed through to camera- can only use camera's light metering while holding down the depth-of-field preview on the lens. This makes it slow. Obviously, the last thing this lens is is versatile.

A good-old classic big-ass Canon lens that looks great and very intimidating on the front of my monster old F1. Also happens to take sharp pictures. Slow and manual, without a single fancy feature. I highly recomend this sort of thing for old cameras that can't use fancy lenses anyway. Old Canon stuff can take as good a picture as anything, it's just harder to use and slower.
