    if it's an FD mount, then I'm sure there are wide angle lenses... though you won't really find much like the 10mm that are available now. Back then 18-20mm was considered to be quite wide (of course it is 35mm, so it's much wider than the crop sensors now).

    These wider lenses can be found all over ebay.

    I currently use a 28mm and that is plenty wide for me on the AE-1

    Lenses are all over ebay but if you dont want to look I would seel you mine seeing as how i moved onto Large Format

    Where are you getting your math?

    A full frame 20mm lens (like the FDs) on a Canon crop body at 1.6x would be 20 x 1.6 = 32mm equivalent.

    And since the AE-1 is a film body (thus full frame), the conversion is not relevant to the OP's needs...especially since you'd need a FD-EOS converter at the same time for any Canon digital bodies.

    Where are you getting yours?

    20mm on FF = 12.5 on crop.

    Brian's right... with a 1.6 crop factor, you have to multiply 20mm by 1.6 which means a 20mm lens on FF is equivalent to 32mm on a crop sensor.

    My observation about the equivalent field of view was directed to Nate's comments.

    Obviously, 20mm is a very wide lens on the FD mount.

    Sorry, 12.5X1.6=20 ;)

    You all should probably read a little more carefully, the OP has a FF and is not asking about a Dx.

    Isn't that backwards? A 20mm on a FX is 30mm on a crop body? (assuming a 1.5 crop factor, it could be more or less)
    If his camera is FX... 20mm is 20mm, no conversion needed.

    Oops, Mike_E beat me to it. :)

    There's a 24 mm f/1.4 - a rare thing to have such a fast 24 mm lens. 24 mm converts to just under an inch if it is used on an Imperial camera.

    Best,
    Helen
