Hexanon 57/1.2 or Rokkor 58/1.2?

PS I googled for images and I know the answer now

I thought it would be Minolta MD Rokkor 50/1.2 but since you say it's longer, I'll go with Daniel's guess of MD Rokkor 58/1.2

The Konica Hexanon AR 57mm f1.2 is the correct answer!
It is one hell of a lens. Heavy, 460g (62mm filter) compared to the 345g of the A50/1.2, but a very nice bokeh. And mounted on the 740g Konica T3N body (compare with the K2 at 680g) it doesn't look that large. And that combi is a pleasure to shoot with.

Only drawback is that it doesn't realy mount on a Pentax camera, only almost.

On a K20D (doesn't lock, held safely in place, no infinity):

Doug, you might want to try out some of the adapters for it. the lens seems to fit and compatible (with infinity I think) with the Sony NEX and Samsung NX systems.

anyway, on a Pentax, the Konica lens seems to render like a Cosina except that it's sharper, more contrast, smoother,dreamier, creamier and the softy smooth highlights and colors look much better. bokeh transition is great btw and I also I like it's color rendering.

Well, not a 4/3rd, that it too much cropping. But I've been thinking about the NX. Ideally someone would launch a 24x36mm digital EVIL that left room for plenty of adapters. Meanwhile, I've got enough working film Konica bodies to survive.

I really like how you put the focus between the panels and let the SC take the foreground panel towards magenta and the background panel towards green!

An older macro lens, like Tokina 90/2.5?

Yes, it it shot to demonstrate this behaviour of the lens, that front and back OOF have these different optical tendaencies. But you hardly notice it in normal shooting.

That is good thinking, but I don't have that specific lens. It is in my profile.

All four shots wide open. This lens has a really smooth bookeh.

I love those old 2.5 macros! Since you said it was in your profile I had a peak (again): So 90mm f/2.5 was the right combo but Daniel got the wrong maker?

I gotta admit though, Bokina does have more of a ring to it than Bomron...

although I had thought that this was a macro, I was pretty skeptical that this was a Bokina. first, the colors are not as pleasingly smooth and ringy and lacks that certain saturation in the colors (not too strong nor dull at the same time). second, the distinct sharpness at wide open is missing.

i would say it's a lens, without coating, or some kind of old version of it.

Color looke like a tak bayonnet K135/2.8, but the macro aspect is telling me it can't be this lense, because of the magnification, wich seems to big.

edit : maybe K100/4 macro ?
