Hexanon 35-70mm lenses

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Konica 35mm SLRs : One Thread

I just picked up an FT-1 (I love them) with a 35-70mm AR Hexanon f3.5-f4.5 with a macro mode that focusses down to 1.2 ft (1:4.4 ratio) None of my information shows this lens, only the 30-70mm f4 which I have. Is this an older version version, simply scarce or??? Are the optics as good? Any information would be welcome. Thanks

You have the NEWER "compact" lens in this series. The 80-200mm is also available in an older, larger series and a newer "compact" one. If you're disappointed with it, I'd be happy to take it off your hands!

Thank you James. Your response suggest that the lens may be quite nice, and I am particularly interested in its ability to focus down to some 15". I'll try it this week-end. Regards, Herb Sauer
