Nice images.

Did you use some PP contrast? I guess so. The hexar 135 has medium contrast.

Perhaps any variation from lens to lens. My copies haven't the contrast of your one.

Anyway, are the hexars konica made lens, like celtics are minolta made lenses?

i did some correction of the black point in the levels

according to this website

hexars were entry level lenses made by third party maker, rumoured to be Tamron

Well the results look good to me...it would be interesting to know whether there was any different (i.e. results) between this Hexar lens and the similar Hexanon 135mm lens.
