    OK I want to see some group shots of legacy glass collections knuckleheads like me have acquired. I'll show you mine after you show me some of yours.....

    I'm done buying old lenses.

    I don't really have a lot of current money tied up in these lenses. Half of them were from my film days. I might have spent $250 on the rest.

    I bet you have! Great collection. I'll try and get all mine out on a table in the next couple of days and take a few shots. It really has got out of hand. I keep finding bargains and can't leave them be. I've been concentrating on early MC Rokkor and Canon FL lenses. I have a few Konica Hexanon and Takumar lenses in the mix.

    Mostly primes. I have a few zooms hidden away somewhere.

    Is he the one with the world record? ^^ Oh but I figured that was another guy - world record for owning the most number of cameras where he beat his own record.

    Finally got around to pulling them all out of the cabinet and taking a few of shots. As you can see I'm partial to Minolta Rokkor.

    A few Konica's stuffed into the small light tent. I would have tried to squeeze in a Konica 200mm f3.5, but its leaking lube and the focus ring seems to have jumped the tracks (the ebay seller don't think there is anything wrong with it :rolleyes:)

    Both the 5 and 7 elements 28mm versions are represented :thumbup:

    Nice collection of Hexanons Hasse. I am interested in getting a 35mm f2.8 to add to my collection. Was wondering how well that lens performs in your hands and whether you find it to be a useful lens, or just a dust collector.
     
  17. I can hear the lens mount on your camera groaning from stress...that is a serious collection. Makes my four lens collection seem ridiculous...

    I have to admit I haven't shot with the Konica's since my Nikon speedbooster arrived. The 24mm, 35mm and 135mm f2.5 came roughly the same time, so I really haven't had a good session with them. The 35mm and 135mm were kinda impulse purchases because of two reasons; they were local (never seen them listed on Australian ebay before); and they were cheap! $AU31 for the 135mm f2.5 and the 35mm were only a few dollars more :eek: :drinks:

    I'll pop the 35mm (and the 135mm f2.5 - since I saw you have started the image thread) into the bag to give them some love and post up when I have something to show.

    Cool. Unfortunate about your 200mm f3.5. I find a lot of use for that lens (also very sharp).

    Quality over quantity is a good strategy. I am trying to go for higher quality stuff, but I usually shop at the flea markets. I found a few surprises, but mostly common stuff.
