Boating with Hexanon pancake lens (film)
Wonderfully sharp entry level manual focus lens.
Image above was taken recently with Fuji 200 color negative. Film was developed and scanned by specialist shop using Pakon F-135 scanner. Taking lens was Konica Hexanon AR 40 f1.8 pancake - a manual focus legacy lens that is often available for a few tenners but draws images with superb clarity. This wonderful lens is not hard to come by on auction site in good working condition.
The jury is still out on whether Hexanon AR 40 f1.8 pancake or Hexanon AR 50 f1.7 is the better lens - both are equally sharp.
