Nope, not a typo. I have, in my possession a Canon 55mm f/1.2 lens with an EF mount. How? Well, many of you may know of Ed Mica, an engineer with a passion for photographic lenses, and lens mounts more specifically. He has worked to provide many mount conversion kits for older FD lenses, converting them to a more modern EF mount and while Ed has had a conversion mount for the FL 55mm f/1.2, I’d been waiting for an FD 55mm f/1.2 SSC conversion since I’d first heard about Ed’s products a couple years back. Now, he has a conversion mount for many different FD, FL and FDn lenses including my lovely 55mm. Not only do I now have an ultra fast semi-standard lens for my full frame Canon cameras, I also need to keep one less micro 4/3 adapter around which turns this lens into a 110mm equivalent lens capable of absorbing light in the near darkness for both formats… Examples and test shots on the other side…

*Topaz Detail 3, my first run
Hi all and welcome to a quick review on your Topaz special plugin of the month! This month Topaz is running a special on Detail 3 for 50% off! Normally $39.99, if you use the code “aprdetail” HERE on Topazlabs website, the price drops down to $19.99!!!
That’s all well and good, but what does Detail do? I had not tried it until I was made aware of the sale, so here is my experience and thoughts on what I think it is best at doing.
