I know there is the I & II. Is there a I non-IS? When did each lens debut?

Looking to pick up a 500mm so weighing out the options.

Thank you for any info with this :cool:

How about the reflex lens

On the Canon History FD page they mention a F/5.6 with Fluorite element but I wasn't able to find a page about it.

Good hunting!

Greetings
