Hello my friends,

Long time no see my friends. I've just finished my course in Gttingen and Next month I'll move to Bamberg, Germany.

Yesterday I've just got Konica AR 57mm f1.2 from the seller in Germany in a good bargain. And today I've tested by took some photos indoor.

The result is I'm in love with Konica. I forgot the other f1.2 lens that I've used before, haha

Lovely any comments for this lens and thanks in advance. Very Happy

The images are full of colour and contrast considering they were shot wide open Shocked Looks really good, although the shallow depth of field is very limiting Smile

I think the rest of mflenses member miss you too Khan, including me Smile

I like the sharpness, contrast and subtle color.

It was my dream lens in early days I was bitten by MF. But since it hits 5D mirror I sadly have to delete it from my hunting list. Smile till I get my NEX camera someday. Or I hope Canon release it's mirrorless FF cam Smile

Hello Attila, poilu, nixland, I think of you too and many thanks for any comments.

nixland, you are like me. I've Canon lens and I've got Hexanon 57mm f1.2 the second version that the mount ring is plastic and it lost so I sold in Ebay in a good price.

When I use Sony Nex, I try to find them and found the first version that the mount ring is metal so I need an fall in love with it.

any good comment for Konica Hexanon http://www.buhla.de/


Now I'm in love with Konica and I've bought Hexanon series as follows,

1. Hexanon AR 40mm f1.8 = 20 euro

2. Hexanon AR 100mm f2.8 = 95 euro

What do you think about the price?

I try to find

Hexanon 85mm f1.8, someone in Germany told me this is a good portrait lens so
I need it.

Another Hexanon is 50mm f1.7, that is the sharpest 50mm lens from Konica. I see many items in Ebay Germany.


Another Picture from Bamberg, the new city where I live for next 2 years.

The picture took by Sony nex 5 and Exakta 24mm f2.8, macro M42. This is a good bargain that I paid 15 USD in a mint condition.

See you again, my friends.
Very Happy Very Happy

Not bad for 1.2 lens. They would probably be even better with a bit more sharpening.
