Re: KONIKA 40 1.8 vs CANON 50 1.4
Which should i keep?

I like my CANON, but is heavy and the manual focus ring is kind a stiff. The HEXANON is a pancake next to CANON and very light. Opinions?

Reading your requirements, what ever lens you decide to keep, it will not be 100% ideal solution for you.

IMHO, best of both worlds for you would be:

Konica Hexanon 1.7/50 and Canon (new)FD 1.4/50

Get it both, and then you can decide which one you will keep.

I have prefect copy of each, both are wonderful lenses. Somehow, I prefer Konica. It is subjective, of course.
