Following up on Part 1 of Fujinon Fast Lens Alternative, here i show the Konica 57mm 1.4 which is much closer to the recently announced yet to be released Fujinon 56mm 1.2. This has to be one of my favorite lenses from Konica, it’s got serious mojo in terms of the way it renders on the X-Trans Sensor. Fantastic saturation, color and pop… Wide open you get that lens softness – not to be confused as a flaw. In Leica land they call this glow, go figure. All shots in Raw @ f/1.4 processed in Aperture with minimal tweaking except B&W conversions using my Tri-X preset. Other than that everything else is straight out of camera in Raw.
