In demand to multiple requests to fill the gap between the 55mm and 85mm, TLS have worked hard to create this offering, the Canon 70mm FD-X lens with a T stop of T1.3.

To produce the 70mm FD-X lens, TLS use the Canon 85mm FD f1.2 (either SSC or FD L version) along with a x0.8 wide angle adaptor. The wide-angle adaptor is supplied by TLS, although this is an ‘off the shelf’ adaptor, TLS have the coatings modified by the manufacturer to closer match those of the FD lenses. Therefore, the adaptor has more magenta coatings to match the later series of FD’s and K35’s. This means that the customer only needs to supply the 85mm FD f1.2 base lens for TLS to make the conversion to a 70mm T1.3 FD-X lens. While on projection, the lens has more fall off towards the edges than the 85mm FD lens.  Initial reports from end users is that this is not noticeable and the lens matches well with the rest of the FD series. The lens has a 110mm front diameter and the focus and iris positions match the rest of the FD set.
