    fast normal primes

    hi

    I bought the nokton1.1 and have a few of my fast primes that i am selling.

    1. Hexanon 57mm f1.2 + Hood : $350
    This is the legendary lens with the rubber focus ring which has been adapted to mount on 4/3. The shim for 4/3 mounting is included. The rod near the rear mount is removed (see pic 3, golden circle on the shim) to allow it fit into the 4/3 and u4/3 adapter. The u4/3 adapter is +20$.
    The lens and aperture are in mint condition, some dust inside that does not affect performance. It has always had the filter on. The aperture clicks nice and snappy like new and the focus ring is clean.
    Original front and rear lens cap included.

    2. SMC Pentax 50mm f1.2 : $250 SOLD
    This lens is a very sharp copy of the fast prime. I used it on e3 and then on my epl1. It has very close focus and is pretty sharp wide open. It is very sharp stopped down.
    The glass and aperture are very clean, some dust inside that does not affect performance. It also has always had its filter on. The focus ring is smooth. The only blemish is the scratch on the front filter mount near the 1.2 and marking 8 on the aperture ring, as shown in the pics. The last pic shows the slab next to the aperture filed by 2mm to allow it to fit the 4/3(and u4/3) adapter.
    Original front and rear lens cap included.

    thanks

    Hope you get it, Ashwin. I have this K version as well as the later A version, and they are really dandy lenses. Dreamy wide open but exceedingly sharp stopped down.

    Ashwin that was quick! I've been thinking about one of these as well. I guess I'll have to keep looking. Hope you got it!

    Re: fast normal primes

    The smc lens was used with a 4/3 adapter. That needed the aperture shim to be filed by 2mm. And i am guessing it will not fit k-mount as a k-lens anymore.

    so, inspite of all the k-mount drool, i would recommend this only to adapt lens type. or to someone who knows how to use it on pentax.

    and yes, all you folks are right about this smc lens, it is a fine sharp lens.

    Haha, Mark, I would have snagged this in a heart beat, but I have heard that the aperture shim, when modified, can't be grasped by the K5 and K7's aperture adjustment mechanism. Shrimp123 seems like a great guy ,great communicator, very understanding. I hope to find this lens unmodified someday soon!

    I guess the Hexanon can not be used on a Konica SLR any more. Am I right?

    Re: fast normal primes

    the aperture control pin is ok, but the "rod" next to it has been removed. Now, if only i knew what it does.... It cant have been there for nothing. I have the spare piece that i removed, but, if u r bent on using on a konica beauty, i would advise u against it.
