    Really happy with the outcome :)

    the ice is melting away outside which make the roads and grass all "mushy", so I took some photos of my favourite test "subject" indoors :)

    it shines on the X-E1 and looks damn sexy too on a black X-E1 ;)

    The konicas are great value for their money, it's not like i'll use them for 1000s of shots, but they are nice to take on a walk and maybe even some low light local gigs

    Great pics ! I like Konica lenses a lot. How is manual focussing on the XE-1. Is the viewfinder and magnification useable (bright light) ?

    Nice shots Wolf.I took mine out shooting yesterday.For me,it's really soft until f5.6.Small and nice looking though,and the adapter is quite small also.

    Nice shots Wolf. I am having this lens as well and was using with Nex. May I know where to get the adapter for X-E1? Thanks.

    Thanks. Ebay results are all Konica AR to Fuji X, no Hexanon. Can AR adapter be used with Konica Hexanon lenses?

    Yep, the "Hexanon" line of lenses from Konica used the AR mount.
