    Thumbs up SOLD: Konica 40mm f1.8 with M4/3rds adapter

    This is a very good copy of this sweet little lens for use on M4/3 via the included adapter. Gives you a really nice portrait lens that renders beautifully, classic sharp yet smooth which is tough to find nowadays unless you spend big bucks. I am selling it only because I finally got a 45 macro and do not want to carry both lenses. For the money, this is a hard lens not to love

    Asking $95 shipped US and paypal'd for the combo -- BOTH lens and adapter together! Includes lens with front and rear caps and M4/3rds adapter.



    FWIW: Here is a picture with it wide open on a GF1:

    Hmmmm. Nobody wants a sweet little manual focus 40mm for their M4/3rds kit?

    Problem is the picture of that really ugly guy that you put up....

    Agreed that my "model" is a little less than stellar -- but I think it shows the lens is pretty sharp and the bokeh is pretty smooth!

    Re: FS: Konica 40mm f1.8 with M4/3rds adapter

    I've been using one of these lenses for quite a while now. It's an excellent performer:



    Wild Three
    Panasonic G1 + Konica 40mm f/1.8

    Mine has had the mount modified so I can use it on FourThirds SLR as well as Micro-FourThirds (with DMW-MA1 adapter).

    I think some might be put off by the price you've set, Jack. The fact that it includes the adapter might be a point of misunderstanding.

    Godfrey, what is the right price for this lens with the adapter? I just listed it for what I paid for it, but want to price it correctly.

    Re: FS: Konica 40mm f1.8 with M4/3rds adapter

    Thanks for the info Godfrey! Lowering the price for BOTH the lens and adapter to $95 shipped and PP'd. If this doesn't sell as a pair this week, I will separate the items.

    Cheers,

    Re: FS: Konica 40mm f1.8 with M4/3rds adapter

    Okay, why is this still here at $95 ???

    $50 for the lens

    $50 for the adapter.


    It's actually a way better lens than that, so I probably should keep it, but I'll give it one more try!

    Vagaries of the market, I guess. It's a great little lens.

    Must be... Or nobody wants a manual lens It's really okay, if it doesn't move by 5PM today, I'll just hang onto it for when I want "the look"

    I can ship via FedEx or USPS, so whatever the actual cost is. USPS looks like around $80 to Oz.

    Answering for Jack:
    The lens has a Konica Hexanon AR SLR mount. The adapter allows it to be fitted to Micro-FourThirds cameras.

    If you were too late for the lens, I know of a second one for sale . Once Jack's is sold you can PM me.

    Jack,

    I've been away for a few days and just seen your post -- not sure what the current status is but if the lens & adapter are still available I will take them for $95 -- I've pm'd you also.

    Best, John
