Konishiroku Hexanon 50 mm f/2.8 (enlarging lens)

This is a very old lens and of course it shows its age in some aspects, but it's such a joy to use, that I immediately forget about any of that and get really inspired.

Time to rain in his ambition…

Jag it out! No less than an Aston.


To top it all off, in my personal opinion, this little thing is one of the most beautiful lenses of all time... It probably took some design ideas from the very first Leitz enlarger lenses, but even if that's the case it improves it in every single aspect. I absolutely love the design:

There are quite a few similar looking Hexar lenses in 50 and 75 mm around, but so far I have yet to see another sample of this specific Hexanon one.
