60mm Hexanon 1.2 – Stealing beauty

Today I acquired a new lens, the Konica 60mm Hexanon 1.2. This is a very rare lens as only 800 were produced 10 years ago. On the M8, it corresponds to a 85mm field of view making it a great tool for portraits and close-ups. You will probably see a lot of shots taken with it in the future. I was lucky to find a beautiful subject for one of the very first shots taken with it.   (click on picture to enlarge)

    Great! I like your wide angle shots, but I also like your super shallow DOF shots.. I wish you had a Summilux 21/24mm ;)

    can’t wait to see more work using this lens. would love to see some closer portraits done with this lens!

    Martin, sigh ;) … the 24mm Summilux … I also wish I had one, it would close the perfect three lenses set-up ;) But too expensive for the moment …

    Alexander, the slideshow I posted today should help fulfill your request, most shots were at 2-3 meters.
