Konica Hexanon 52mm 1.8 (NX100)
May 8, 2012

Found this as well as a 40mm 1.8 and 135mm 3.5 PLUS three extension tubes! My Konica collection is now quite large. The 52mm may not be as fast as the 57mm 1.4 but it's nearly as sharp (maybe the same) and the bokeh is awesome, very 'underwater' sort of solid smooth blur. My bokeh terminology is weak, but it's almost like you're seeing the OOF areas through a really dense water vapor or fuel distortion?

The tea filter (not a mic as you might be thinking) had some CA so I went the other way in LR and accentuated it, figuring it made for interesting tone. The weed is ugly but shows the bokeh qualities off well, so endure its lack of stimulating color. I think I was using the 36mm extension tube on both of these with the 52mm.
