    I screwed up the title so it seems. I can't correct it myself...

    Can an admin change it to "Konica 52mm f/1.8 Hexanon Image Thread"?

    title - correction

    Is there an "advanced" function in the Edit menu - if so you should be able to correct the title

    Hmm, let me try with my less than perfect English...

    It are holes with plugs in a manhole on top of an oil-tank. I think they are used to connect measurement devices or measure the volume of oil in the tank.

    Silly question about using adapted lenses, what focal length will this work out too when used on a m4/3.

    Native lenses I know have a 2x crop factor added to them, but I'm not sure how this would work with an adapted 35mm film lens.

    The (approximately) 2x crop factor is the same for native or adapted lenses. In the case of this lens, it would approximate the field of view of a 104mm lens on a 35mm camera (or full-frame DSLR). This doubling is simply a function of the difference in size of the :43: sensor compared to 35mm film.

    You can find a very thorough explanation of what this all means in this thread.

    Here's one from my lunchtime walkabout yesterday:
    20120606-_1040272.

    My copy of this lens is a bit loose on my cheap, "Fotasy" adapter. My other Konica lenses don't have this issue. Any ideas on what can be done to make to minimize the play between the lens and adapter.

    Just got my Konica 52mm in the other day. Have not had a chance to take many shots with it but here is SOOC jpg I grabbed the other morning on the way to work. P7120038.JPG
