Finally went to the zoo this morning and take some shots.
I see that you've got those big red rats over there as well.
Nice pics......and nice separation and bokeh on pic #5 (2nd bird shot).
Those Hex's are sleepers.....
konica glass is superb
Here are 2 more bird shots:
Nice Zoo shots. I just got an adapter from Hong Kong that will lock this lens. My rainbow one did not quite lock on.
My used lens just arrived in the mail today so I went out for a walk. It's a little tricky to hold steady while focusing just using the zoom on the E-PL1 rear LCD, but not too bad. Here's a couple of shots after a little PP in Aperture. The first one was shot at about the minimum focusing distance (~3ft).
I just got this lens in the mail this week. It has far surpassed my expectations in terms of sharpness. Easily the best lens value I've had so far. I'll post photos later this weekend when I get back home.
I've been bidding to get one of these for weeks now with no success. I could get one if I was willing to overpay, but for now I'll just keep being patient.
I probably overpaid market price at ~$53 shipped, but it came with the original box and case and had a nice filter.
That said, it's worth overpaying market a little for this lens...it's a lot of fun and surprisingly compact.
It took me a while to find a reasonably priced copy of this lens last year, but it was worth the wait.
E-PL2 with Konica 135mm f 3.2 at f5.6, 1/100 sec, ISO 500
E-PL2 with Konica 135mm f3.2 at f8, 1/800 sec, ISO 200
Mounted to a G1; f8:
I don't use this lens enough. When I do, I'm always surprised how sharp it is in good light, and the bokeh is very nice.

I think I am going to really like mine if I can ever figure out how to get it to lock onto the adapter. I almost used duct tape on it yesterday! If anyone has suggestions please share. I am using a cheap Chinese adapter, my other Konica ( a 40mm) works just find on the same adapter.
I had that problem with a Rainbow adapter. Some lenses, the 40 and 50mm Konicas it worked great others including this lens it would not lock. I got another adapter from a different company and it locked on without any problem.
Thanks! Can you share what adapter you have and where you found it?
I just looked on ebay for the best deal and ordered it. Sorry I don't remember who it was.
