  • Here's another shot taken with my Konica Hexanon AR 40mm f1.8 lens at f2.0.  I think it does quite well opned up like this and under low light conditions.
  • I bought a Sony a3000 body just to be able to use my old Konica Hexanon AR lenses that had been in storage since I switched from film to digital in 2007.  The Konica IQ is second to none and I am ...
