Canon nFD 70-210 F4 Zoom
Late model Canon FD Zoom with nFD fitting, very nice condition with sparkling glass, snappy aperture with firm but smooth focusing and zoom.
Constant f4 across zoom range.
A very nice example of this model complete with original end caps.
One small defect is part of the depth of field markings on the zoom barrel have worn off in two places – this can be seen in one of the photographs. Like most lenses of this period a few small dust specks are present internally. These will have no effect on pictures taken with it.
Canon manufactured two very similar zoom lenses available in the FD series. The FD 70-210mm f/4 was bought out at the same time as the Canon A-1 in 1978 and was aimed at the users of the A-1 and the biggest seller of Canons line up at the time the AE-1.
The other version of this lens was the slightly slower f4.5 version which was a budget lens designed for the T50 users on a budget.
This is the later nFD version with the bayonet fitting rather than the early version breech-lock but will fit all Canon FD mounts.
Lens was in good condition when we obtained it requiring only exterior cleaning.

All lenses of this age exhibit some small particles of dust and coatings are not up to modern standards. Cameras will exhibit some wear signs and likewise may have small dust specks in their viewfinders or focus screens. These do not affect the picture in any way.

We then spend hours to bring them back to fully working and clean condition, ready for a new lease of life with you We always change the film seals, give the camera a clean/service and make sure its fully working before we sell it on to you.
Most lenses are cleaned, re-lubricated and all of their functions checked prior to sale so you know they will work, full details will always be in the text.
