A7 and the lens.

The grip is a HorusBennu 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.

F 1.8.

F 8.

F 22.

Closest focus is only 31cm 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 or cast 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 or F 22 and you know what I mean. The lens has good close focussing capablities.

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 with one stop more than average.
