    ... to fit a konica hexanon AR 24 f/2.8 on my e-p1 ?

    Serious question. I didn't expected to buy yet *another* lens, but I just got this one in a 'garage cleaning' kind of sale. Absolutely mint, with all accessories including metal sun shade in its own pouch. I took it to re-sell it, but having read many impressive reviews on the web, I'd like to give it a chance first.

    Cheers,

    wow, it is minty - makes your 20/17 look a bit shabby in fact ... would have liked one of these myself but unless I'm lucky like you, I'm not willing to pay what they fetch ...

    I have no way to be sure, but if you ask me, it has the sweet feeling of a brand new, unused lens. No spot, no scratch, no nothing. 100% pristine.

    Who knows, I may put it up on sale someday... Following your advice, I've located the adapter and discovered RainbowImaging has an Amazon.com store, which I prefer over plain ebay buying through Paypal. Just a couple $ more. So now, I'll be waiting some weeks for the adapter and then I'll make up my mind.

    Cheers,

    Rainbow Imaging has them.

    One of the issues with Konica's AR mount is the short flange distance. So, essentially, the lenses aren't useful to other SLR users, but enterprising souls have made adapters available to the mirrorless crowd.

    Thanks, I tried to register through their site, but my country (France) is not in the popdown menu list (although they have all of french territories outside mainland, go figure), and when I tried to 'contact them', my message bounced with an error... and although I clicked on send again, I'm unsure it made it through.

    Not reassuring.

    Cheers,

    Try searching for PIXCO adapter at rocksphoto on the big auction site.

    I prefer these to RJCamera/rainbowimaging adapters.
