Canon FL-series lenses, which replace the earlier Canon R lens mount, were introduced in April 1964 and were the standard mount for Canon FX (1964), FP (1964), Pellix (1965), FT QL (1966), Pellix QL (1966), and Canon TL (1968) cameras. It was replaced in 1971 when the Canon FD mount was launched with the Canon F1.

Canon FL mount lenses can be used on FD-mount cameras in stop-down metering mode.

The 50mm 1.8, 6 elements in 4-groups construction, can be found in two iterations, identical externally, but with the optics on the later optimized for improved performance. The iterations are distinguished by weight - Type I weighs in at 228 grams while Type II is at 280 grams. These first impression images were shot on Type I.
