A6000 and the lens.

The grip is a Case Logic grip attached to a Manfrotto 200PL style quick release plate, a special plate made by HorusBennu for their grips. It allows you to use the camera, with the grip attached, on a Manfrotto RC2 Rapid Connect Adapter.

Sample pictures: You may click on the sample image (except closest focus) for full resolution. The full resolution image opens in a new window, so you can keep it open for comparison. Focus is on the satellite dish in the center of the photo.

F 1.8.

F 8.

F 22.

Closest focus is only 36cm from outermost edge of the lens, F 8. Focus on the program wheel of the camera.

Already wide open picture sharpness is o.k., my lens has scratches on the front and dirt inside. So the haze at F 1.8 is most probably due to this (I got it for next to nothing). Stopped down it's fine. Have a look at the full resolution image at F 8 and you know what I mean. The lens has good close focussing capablities. At F 22 there is only a little bit of diffraction, which is much better than other lenses. Diffraction is a problem of the APS-C sensor size, not the lens (see comparison page).

Konica AR lenses are 40.5mm FFD. This is shorter than most of the others, except M39. So the adapters are shorter as well. On top of this, AR lenses are very compact. It's a small and lightweight lens and it is cheap. A good lens for the A6000 with one stop more than average.
