Hello Forum,

here are some first shots with my Hexanon F1.4/57, typical garden pics.
All wide opened:

I'm waiting for better weather to get more fun...

Very nice! I like your kitty. The 57 1.4 Konica is an underrated gem. Great bokeh. Plenty sharp stopped down a notch. Smooth operation and built like a tank. I have a few of these. I predict they will go up in value now the CaNikon has mirrorless FF cameras. Just a fantastic lens for 50 bucks as of now....

I got one of these at a garage sale about a year ago. It definitely has a character unlike any other lens I've used.

In general I don't like the bokeh, but in certain situations it can look great.

It's a nice, solidly-build lens though, and I've enjoyed shooting with it.
