cause its probably one of the most versatile primes out there that most people can afford, not to short, or wide, and with 1.4 its very low light friendly, and it is just a sexy looking lens imo

The FD 1.4 was considered Canon's "reference" lens in the 1980s. I still have it, and occasionally still use it on my A-1. It is a beautiful piece of glass and a build quality that is just superb. That said, I guess my AF version is a good 'copy'; very satisfactory at 1.8 and only mild edge softness wide open. But the build quality just does not compare . . .

Yup...I've had both, hated the EF and loved the FD.
