I recently aquired a Konica Hexar AF with fixed 35mm f2 lens. It is a pretty capable performer. With my aging eye-sight (47 years) I'm beginning to appreciate auto-focus (I can't believe I'm admitting to this!) Anyway, even for someone like me who loves older mechanical cameras (of all formats) this Konica is an easy camera to like. It has the same quality feel, and is indeed made of metal rather than plastic. It gets my vote as a quick to use "happy-snapper" and also capable of quality results.
