Konica Minolta Konica M-Hexanon 50mm F/1.2 Lens 10/10 | eBay
Price is equally amazing.
Is this worth more than the Canon 0.95?
Its value comes from its rarity and the fact it has never been used. A new owner very likely wouldn't use it either.
The lens was only available as part of a limited edition kit with a flash gun and a Konica Hexar RF body in titanium finish. I believe only 2000 were manufactured. That makes them rare, and a lens sold on its own is doubly rare.
I used a Konica Hexar RF for some years in place of my Leica M7 body which was unreliable and had difficulty producing accurate exposures at 1/1000 sec. The Hexar RF has a 1/4000 sec highest shutter speed and is ideal if you want to shoot with an f/1.4 lens wide open in daylight.
Bordering on insane!
