I have had a 57mm f1.2 Hexanon AR for a while... now I have a body to put it on...
I shoot and develop B&W film... this time TMAX 100 in TMAX Developer 1:4

The camera and lens balances nicely and feels solid!
The only thing I don't is the way Konica advances the film... a slotless spool... it is hard to tell when I rewind the to leave the leader out. The release pressure is soft. (for later daylight developing reel starting)

Here are some photos I took the other day at a park...

f/1.2 or so... (hard to tell in AE mode, f/1.4 is the last listed stop with an empty space between f/1.4 and "M", the empty space has an LED that shows overexposure (or f/1.2 if you have it...)
