    I have a Konica A3, ever ready case, manual + 28mm f2.8 Mitakon lens, 135mm f2.8 Vivitar lens and a Konica Hexanon AR 50mm f1.7 lens--the 50mm is having some issues but I am looking into that. I would like to trade for something Exakta...lens, body...something. Preferably 1950's or early 1960's. Anyone interested? PM me!
    Thanks,
    Matt

    I've never used that particular body, but every other Konica body I've ever used has done nothing short of impress me. I know people like to throw around the cliche of "It's built like a tank!", but Konica's bodies were serious business.

    And I can say, with all positivity, that the Hexanon 50/1.7 is one of the finest, sharpest 50s ever made.
