    You're making me want one! Is it battery dependent, and does it use a modern battery?

    Hi chazzy,

    It's not battery dependent.. It has shutter priority automatic exposure... But I prefer using it in manual mode.. The meter works in manual mode too.. I don't trust my Konica Auto S2's meter so I just shoot with Sunny16.. It doesn't use modern battery though it can be converted to take modern ones.. I use the modern energizer PX625 batteries..

    Thanks very much. Konica lenses have a good reputation. The lenses for my Koni-Omega are excellent.

    Konicas are splendid, although the range of lenses for my T4 isn't exactly great! The AR format was never considered a serious outlet for some of the alternative lens makers like the Canon and Nikons have with sigma. Having said that, one of my favourite lenses is the 50mm f/1.8 that's mounted on it right now! Beautifully sharp and crisp.
