Hex-addiction - new site dedicated to Konica's Hexanon lenses


Got to love it.

A new site dedicated to shooting with Konica Hexanon lenses.

Rather than a technical/specs site (who needs anymore than Buhla's incredible database?), our blogger here at the Konica Hexanon Project wishes to shoot with them and reveal the loveliness that is Hexanon (of course I am biased, see below).

The blogger writes:
Welcome to Konica Hexanon Project! This project is dedicated to Konica Hexanon lenses. My goal is not to do a thorough survey on technical information about these lenses, but rather, I would like to build up a collection of pictures taken with them. It is unlikely I can acquire all Konica lenses due to my budget and the rarity of certain lenses. But I’ll do my best.

I'm always a sucker for a theme like this. 52 cameras in 52 weeks and Rollei 35 and Polypan F are good examples of a particular photographic obsession bearing fruit online.

Of course, these types of projects work best when the photography is excellent like Tony's and Zeno's stuff.

I look forward to following the Project. Good luck. I hope you are able to get your hands on all the Hexanon AR lenses! Perhaps kind souls will send you theirs.

Why didn't I think of it?
