Just collected an FA50/1.4 Classic, so apologies if that immediately invokes Sod's Law and brings a load of miserable weather given a major reason to choose this particular lens is the interesting things it does with rainbow flares!

As in the new one that's marketed as "classic" because it has lots of flare wide open and old coatings? Or the bog standard FA that's been around for thirty years?

The new one, which looks like it has even more flare wide open than the old original. Sadly though, as predicted the weather today has not exactly been compliant to give the flares a chance!
