Konica Hexanon 57 f/1.2

Few weeks ago I wrote a list of very fast 50mm lenses. But if you are looking for fast lenses you should also take a look on the very good Konica Hexanon 57 f/1.2 lens!

If you want to see some image samples click here:

dpreview forum (on the GH1) (on the E-P2) (on the GF1)

UPDATE: Lumix L1 + Konica samples

The lens itself sells for $550 on Ebay (used). And you need an Adapter!

If you have some image samples send me your links at
And also send me your test with other fast lenses!
