The final of my three The Hexanon Series with Konica Hexanon AR lenses - the Hexanon AR 40mm 1:1.8 pancake, Hexanon AR 50mm 1:1.8, and this post with images from Hexanon AR 52mm 1:1.8.

The idea of the series was not to be overly critical or technical with image capture or the performance of each lens, but as a thought that manual focus legacy lenses, with an appropriate adapter for different brands of cameras, may still have a place within the proliferation of the new breed of manual focus lenses designed and produced for current digital cameras.

The Konica Hexanons were the mainstay of the Auto-Reflex series SLRs first introduced in 1966. Of the three in this Quick Take series, the 52mm 1:1.8 was the earliest to be launched, and in my opinion, gives the mildest color rendition. Bokeh was good. Colors are sharp and contrasty, with equally good bokeh when compared to the intermediate 50mm 1:1.8. Each has its own merits, all are very affordable, and one will surely get you excited.
