Canon K35 vs Canon FD Lenses: Can a set of $5k lenses match the $100k set?

I heard that the Canon K35 is based on the Canon FD L series glass. I wanted to see and didn’t find anything on the web, so with Jano I did a test. Thank you Jano for the glass.

As you can see in the video below, they are remarkably similar. Perhaps one of the few differences I have found is a slight warmer color to the K35 as well as the K35s being more prone to flaring.

But still quite remarkable how similar. I’m not a lens tech in anyway, but I would indeed gamble that this maybe the same glass, just modified.

I love the look of the K35 glass - I just wish it was so expensive to rent!
