Konica Hexanon 200mm/4

I have been pretty happy with a Konica Hexanon (NOT Hexar) 200mm f/4. However, although pretty light for a 35mm telephoto at about 600+g w/ adapter, it is still about twice the weight of my Four Thirds 40-150mm zoom w/ MMF2 adapter.

Should be reasonably affordable on eBay if you are patient and ignore the typically overpriced buy-them-now listings (checking the completed listings should give a more accurate indication of what they should go for).

Further info at (keeping in mind that the comments on relative sharpness, contrast, etc. are relative to other MF film lenses): http://www.buhla.de/Foto/Konica/Objektive/e200_4.html
