Hello, I just purchased this lens online. It is probably very rare since I cannot find any mention of a 35mm preset lens with an AR mount. The lens also has 12 aperture blades.
Dear Carlos, you are right, the 35 / 2.8 Pre-Set is not a common lens. But it exists, I have one myself. I've seen it listed in some old Autoreflex T brochure alongside the Auto version and if I remember correctly, it has the same optical formula as the Auto version, but I'm not 100%26 sure about that and cannot find the brochure right now.
Pre-Set lenses for the AR bayonet were not all that uncommon, however. There were quire a few in the early days of the AR bayonet system: - 28 / 3.5 (different optical formula as the Auto version) - 135 / 3.5 - 200 / 3.5 (different optical formula as the Auto version) - 200 / 5.6 (Pre-Set only, no Auto version) - 70-230 / 4.5 (Pre-Set only, no Auto version)
The 400 / 4.5 and 800 / 8 did not even have Pre-Set, but manual aperture only.
The 35 / 2.8 was available in both Pre-Set and Auto versions for the earlier F bayonet as well.
Hallo! Danke für die tolle Seite mit den vielen Infos. Ich habe bei meinen Eltern die Autoreflex T mit diversen Objektiven, Zwischenringen und Filtern mitgenommen. Ich hatte Sie schon als Teenager brauchen dürfen. Ich freue mich auf den ersten Einsatz. Bitte diese Seite weiter pflegen.
I am looking at a 55mm Macro Hexanon at a very, very attractive price. What body would be the best to use with this lens? All suggestions welcome.
Webmaster's answer: That's more a question of personal taste than anything else. Personally, I prefer the T3N, but the 55 Macro will work just as well with a TC, T4, or any of the electronic FS-1, FC-1 or FT-1.
I have been looking into some vintage lenses for my Sony a6000 and wasn’t sure what kind of adapter I should buy and I only want one system. After some research and finding your site I’m going with Konica Hexanon AR lenses. Thank you for all the info you’ve provided it’s awesome! You’ve done a lot of work and it’s well worth it. I’m starting with the KH 50mm 1.7 EE version and the 135mm 3.2. I really love your reviews.
