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.
I was very impressed by your work about Konica cameras and lenses. I've purchased a T3N and the Hexanon 50 1.7. This lens is awesome and the camera woks fine, both are my first choice when I'm going out for a walk. I've linked your pages to my new blog about film developing, "afotosdepepe.blogspot.com".

thanks very much for sharing your hobby! im pretty new to photography and have a newer lens changeable camera called fujifilm xt1. my dad had an old konica (1970s) witch he gave to me when i started to get intrested in photograpy. i put some new batteries in it and this steel bucket works like a charm. the lenses he had on he´s camera back then works perfectly with my fujifilm with an adapter. and now when i was up in northern sweden i found an old camera bag on a fleemarket, one konica TC and three lenses, there amongst the wonderful 50mm f1,7 witch i had read here was wonderful(and it truly is!). all in the bag was about 25 euro, i was shaking while i walked to the counter:) your page have helped a lot with information on what to be on the look for. since im pretty new to this your page is an fantastic way of learning, gather information, and then hunt for the lenses and testing them out. i cant really afford the fujinon lenses anyway, but now i dont really care since there are so many fine old lenses to find and use.
thanks for the crazy amount of work you have done with this page!
