Konica Macro-Hexanon AR 55mm f/3.5 AE

Konica AR Macro-Hexinon f/3.5 AE

This is Konica's Macro-Hexanon lens set in AR Mount, with the improved coatings offered in the Green AE version. The lens is in excellent condition overall, and functions perfectly - both mechanically and optically.

The body shows trace signs of use, and optically it has no haze, no fungus, no separation, and no scratches or coating issues or other anomalies that would affect your photos. There is a minimal amount of dust present, but nothing to affect your photos or obscure your vision.

The lens focuses smoothly and is mechanically functional in every respect and allows for full aperture control for both auto and manual mode use, on oil-free blades. The included 1:1 Macro Extension is the original automation-enabled version designed for this lens only, and it works as designed. An added feature of this extension is to spin the lens mounting 180 degrees, and positions a second set of focus scales and lens markings into their proper readable position to reflect the settings in use with this  extension.  This lens and extension tube set will operate on any Konica AR mount body, or will also work equally well on many digital bodies with an appropriate adapter.

You will receive the 55mm Macro-Hexanon lens, with OEM front and rear caps for both the lens and the auto extender tube, and the clamshell OEM case; all as-pictured and as-described, with no other items included.

  • The lens has been tested and used separately on Sony full-frame and APS-C mirrorless bodies for digital use, and on multiple AR Mount bodies to confirm full mechanical operations, but has not been 'film tested'.
  • NOTE: Given the current public health circumstances, I will only ship this item in 'Click-n-Ship' approved packaging with scheduled USPS carrier pickups. In this case, it will be a USPS 7" x 6" x 6" Priority Mail box, with calculated shipping cost to your address, and insured for the full purchase price.



All samples were taken handheld, on a Sony A7R full frame mirrorless camera, and using a standard 'dumb' manual adapter. They show both magnification levels while using the included extension tube. All photos had minimal processing for digital and color noise, and were converted in Adobe Lightroom v6 from 35MB raw ARW files to >250k 'jpg' file types. No other post-processing was done.
