The Konica Hexanon 60/1.2 (and the Steve Huff Effect).

Today I noticed an unusual spike in traffic to this site, mainly because of increased interest in my write-up of the Konica Hexanon 60/1.2.

I was a little confused as to why an article that I posted almost a year ago was suddenly popular again (normally it’s my write-up of the Voigtländer Nokton 40/1.4 that gets the most attention).  Then I visited the website of my good friend Steve Huff.  Steve is about to host a photo cruise and he’s managed to secure a copy of the Konica 60/1.2 to use during his time away.   One mention of this lens on his site and suddenly everybody is interested in it (that’s the Steve Huff Effect :)).

It’ll be interesting to see how well the Konica Hexanon 60/1.2 fares mounted on the Fuji X-Pro 1 that Steve is taking with him.

    Where the heck can a person find one?

    Unfortunately, it’s really difficult to find one, but every so often one pops up for sale. The prices are now stratospheric, however.
