    new shooter new member

    Hi all Im just starting out.I know a little bit but not a lot.
    Ive not even got the 35mm ive got from ebay.its $35 dollar n70.Ya I know.But I not expecting much.Ive also have a pristine konica t3 with a 50mm lens.as well as a macro bellows.
    I was thinking I might get a macro lens for it. I may know where I can get one for about $150 Is it worth it?
    If the beat up n70 works(estate sale) should I put the $150 toward an auto lens? or even a manual nikon lens?

    Hi Bob,

    Welcome to APUG. I'm not a big 35 shooter, so I can't really help with the gear questions, but you will get lots of good advice from others here who are 35 shooters. We're at all kinds of levels and all kinds of process and formats, and we're all current newbies at something or other, so I just wanted to say you're welcome here, and don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Hi Bob:

    I shoot all sorts of formats, and I expect that based on quantity alone, I've shot more 35mm than anything else.

    You are welcome here, both to ask questions, and to participate generally.

    One suggestion - revise your profile to indicate at least generally what your geographic location is. That way, if you ask questions about availability of anything, you'll get more useful responses.

    Matt

    Hi Bob:

    I usually use 35mm rather than my meduim format camera these days.

    You are most welcome here, as you might find I am new like you.

    good luck

    Konica lens were as good as Nikon, Canon, or Minolta of the day, the T3 is a very solid camera, and any hexagon lens will peform well. Some later Konica lens were consumer lens and labeled Konica as opposed to hexagon so you want look for hexagon. I dont know what the going rate for a hexagon macro is, is the lens a macro normal or a short tele like a 100 or 105? The N 70 will have advanced features such as a built in motor winder and Nikon lens are easer to get. Although Konica make a wide selection of lens, they were not made in the numbers that Nikon lens were made and even 3rd party lens can be difficult to find. But the Konica is all metal and as long as the exposure system works a great camera. konica was one of the first 35mm with build in motor winders, and would make a useful second body. By the way if you have a bellows why do you need a macro?

    I also have a Konica T3 with a bellows & a reverse lens mount

    I only started using the bellows recently

    P.S. it's Hexanon, not Hexagon
