Very nice, the Hexanons have a great reputation. Perhaps I should get some?

I have most of them, you are more than welcome to borrow any that take your fancy. I have a couple of 'spares' you can have if you don' mind cleaning the very minor fungus out of them. There's a 1.8/40 and a 3.5/28 an I think a 3.5/135, I never got round to cleaning them as I have other copies.

I love the 2.8/24, one of my very favourite lenses, I was using it yesterday actually.

Is that US dollars? If in very good condition, that would be okay I think. 400 would be better, but I suppose lens prices are a bit higher in the Far East then Europe where I am.

yes in dollars Ian,
the seller said lens in mint condition.
but i think I will resist the urge to buy it, because otherwise I have to pay additional shipping cost which makes the cost more. Sad

btw, how much you pay for your lens Ian?

I was extremely lucky with how I got mine, I bought a lot of Konica cameras and lenses, there were 8 lenses and two SLRs, I paid 240ukp and among the lenses was the 24mm, there was also a 3.2/135, 1.7/50, 4/21, 3.5/200 and I forget the rest.

I see the Hexanon 24mm for sale only infrequently, so hard to say what the current market value is, but I think 200-250ukp for a 'mint' one.

Keep an eye out for a Nikkor 24mm, I have the old single coated all metal one, it's as good as the Konica, I only paid 30ukp for mine, it's had a lot of use so the barrel has plenty of wear and the lens has a few scratches, but it shoots perfectly. Nikon totally dominated the professional market for 25 years so you see a lot of old Nikkors that were used by pros and show much wear, so they sell cheap, but in my experience, you have to be extremely unlucky to buy one that had suffered from all it's use, Nikkors of that period were built to laugh off anything a pro threw at them.

I regret asking you, makes me so jealous! Evil or Very Mad

I also consider the nikkor, which is much cheaper.
you've tried both, according to your experience, which one is better in terms of barrel distortion?

Another option is the FD SSC 24/2.8 it costs less(I paid $125) and I'd put head to dead with the Konica, it's sharp wide open already on my NEX-7.

With both the Konica and the Nikkor, I have never noticed barrel distortion, not saying it wasn't there,but it was small enough it wasn't apparent.

Another lens which is expensive is the Minolta Rokkor x 24mm.
