    That is a sweet lens. Love the bokeh of #1. From studying your many photos, I now realized that bokeh is achievable using larger aperture telephoto lenses, and recently posted my first using the 14-140. Thank you.

    Heh - just checked fleabay for a copy. The Hexar version is more expensive than the Hexanon, at least for silly BIN prices :biggrin:

    I believe the Hexar was made by Tamron. Keep looking the Hexanon 200 3.5 is well worth the effort. These photos would be sharper if the wind would stop blowing. That's why they are going to put up Turbines in this area. The wind never stops.

    I will keep looking, however a while ago I stumbled on a Nikon 180mm f2.8 that everyone was ignoring because of a pair of small nicks on the front element. Got it pretty cheap :thumbup:

    Hope to see some pics of the wind turbines when they are up. I've always found them graceful in some landscapes.

    I've posted these elsewhere, but this lens thread deserves to be expanded...

    I was able to finally take the Konica Hexanon AR 200mm F3.5 out and take some shots:

    I am starting to really love this lens. I find 200mm to be a good focal length that you can still comfortably handhold with Olympus Pen Cameras. This one has been tack sharp in my hands. Here are a few more pictures I took with it:

    Here are a couple more with this lens taken handheld through the very dirty window of my living room.
