Macro 55mm lens : LUSENET : Konica 35mm SLRs : One Thread

Anyone have any experience with the 55mm macro-Hexanon AR/3.5. Just purchased an FT-1 with this lens (haven't developed anything yet) plus an extension lens adapter (which bumps it to F5.2). Thanks

55mm Macro

The 55mm Macro is an excellent "flat field" lens. Flat field meaning two dimentions. It can be used as a normal lens but it is better suited for copy work. This lens gets down to 1:2. If you add the extension tube that comes with the lens it gets down to 1:1 or life size.

So where did you pick up this camera and lens for such a great price?

55mm macro heexanon

Picked it up Saturday at a camera club auction. Came on a dirty-looking FT-1 without a battery compartment. A little clean-up, a new battery case from Konica Parts ($30), and a 135 F3.2 picked up at my local camera dealer for $45 and I think I've done pretty well. Now I can sell the Nikon 4004 I've used for the past five years (and disliked, most of the time) and get back to taking photographs. :-)

Thanks for your reply.
