    No, I am looking for FD 400 f2.8L, the new FD mount kind. Yeah, its very very rare. We have been sourcing for it in Scotland for nearly 2 months now with no avail. So, I will be trying here in Singapore via CS, and my friend will be doing so in England. So far, he found the old FD mount version of f5.6.

    I am just looking for the New FD mount, to be used with T90.

    Although, if any old FD or FL mount lenses are permissible to be used decently, do recommend me as well!
