The standard kit lens for many Canon SLRs during the 80's. Initially launched 1979 according to the Canon Lens Museum. I managed to pick my copy up for a good deal from Seawood Photo as part of a sale at the Spring PhotoFair at the Newark Pavilion. Very light weight lens with the typical FD lens plastic feel. Clean and focuses smoothly with great optical quality. I'm not fond of the FD lens mount as I find it fiddly to use but the lenses themselves are very good and plentiful at reasonable prices.
