Konica Hexanon AR 50 f1.7 II

Konica Hexanon AR 50 f1.7 II

Here's another from the Hexanon. Quite sharp I'd say. It amazes me how these old lenses hold up to their new counterparts. They also produce a different redering to the image. I like it and it really brings out the image. I think it must have something to do with the coatings used today, or looking at it another way, a lack of these coatings on the older lenses. Whatever they use presumably reduces flare etc but I prefer the older lenses. True, they are manual focus lenses and my quota of keepers has been reduced since I've been using them but...the keepers I get really seem to shine. Difficult to tell on a small image like these on the photoblog but the originals are really nice.
