Since the other threads about favorite manual focus vintage lenses from different camera brands have gotten the discussions here going again, lets continue with Konica.

  • If you where to build a small balanced lens system with Konica manual focus lenses from wide to tele, which ones would you include?
  • Which Konica manual focus lens is a must have, no matter focal length or price?
  • Which Konica manual focus lens should be avoided?

Konica have several manual focus mounts, like F and AR, if possible pick one of them in your answer so one only need one type of adapter.

I am fairly impressed by the Konica Hexanon AR 50mm F1.8. I may have gotten an exceptionally good copy. Sharp, nice rendering for a simple planar. Many of the other Konicas I've tried have had alignment issues.
