Re: Your favorite Konica manual focus lenses

After stumbling across a Hexanon 50 1.7 (late version) about 18 months ago my collection has been growing.

At the moment I have the following:

Hexar 28 3.5

Hexanon 35 2.8

Hexanon 40 1.8

Hexanon 50 1.7, late version

Hexanon 50 1.7, early version.

Hexanon 55 3.5 macro.

Hexanon 57 1.4

Hexanon 100 2.8

Hexar 135 3.5

Hexanon 135 2.5

Most used are the 28 & 50. To me both these are really nice for the price you pay. I prefer the early version of the 50 1.7 due to the shorter minimum focus distance, 45 cm vs 55 cm. But the later version might be just a bit sharper. Both are soft at 1.7 but is much sharper already at 2.8.

The 28 3.5 is a lens I just love to use. Small, sharp and nice handling.

Combine the 28 & 50 with the 100 2.8 for a nice trio of lenses.
