I've shot a couple of rolls of film through the Konica in the last week or two and though most of them were pretty forgettable pictures, a few were worth looking at more than once and I came away with a favorable impression of the camera. It is a very solid and sturdy camera that feels like it was cast out of iron. The shutter button also feels just as sturdy and takes a hearty squeeze to activate, but it's a sensation I quickly got used to. I really like the look of the camera with its pointed top that reminds me of the Olympus OM-cameras and the Spotmatic. In reviewing my pictures I was impressed by the Hexanon 57/1.4 as it put in a good performance. The pictures that I didn't like weren't unsatisfactory due to any fault of the camera, but rather to my lackluster choice of subjects. I do agree to some extent with some who said earlier that the lens is very good but not quite as good as the FD or Nikkor offerings, and I'll add the Rokkor lenses to that select group as well. It's a sharp lens with pretty good contrast but it seemed to lack that 'something' that my FD lenses have. I'll keep experimenting with it though as my first impressions are often tainted by my lack of experience with a particular piece of gear. I really like this camera and I think that I could grow to love it and get even better performance from it the more I become familiar with it. Here a a few shots taken with the camera as well as a picture of the 'star of the show' itself.
