I recently found one of those olf FL tele lenses in a bad state. After repairing it, I was highly impressed by the sharpness throughout the frame and the superb mechanical construction. Unlike the Mark II version which sports an integrated sunshade while keeping the same optical formula, this version needs an additional sunshade to avoid flare, contrast loss and reflections, given the lens is only single coated. Like any other lens without special glass, the Canon FL 200mm f/3.5 suffers from slight chromatic aberrations which are easily corrected nowadays in postproduction. Vignetting and distortion are negligible while sharpness and contrast are just excellent from wide open (tested with a Sony A7).
