Focusing ring looseness on 50/1.2 M-Hexanon

Sorry, this is not a digital camera but an interchangeable lens for a Konica Hexar RF 35 mm film rangefinder camera. The focusing ring has about a 1/10 mm play or looseness but the optical unit within the focusing mount appears properly tight with no play. There are no external screws that can be tightened and removing the bayonet flange from the back of the lens reveals no obvious means of adjustment.

    Sorry, your telling me something I already know. Konica is out of the camera business and there are no authorized service centers for this item that I know of.

What lens mount do you have on the lens? In other words, with what make film camera did you use the lens? A DSLR from the same company should be able to use the lens.

So you probably have a camera where you have to put in a 35 mm film. Like we all used to have some 10, 15 or more years ago. You telling me, the camera has a zoom lens fixed to the camera, I think it is one of the cheaper cameras from that era. I still have some camera's with film in them and I do use them of and on. I do have to tell you that most of these camera's are very cheap these days. Cheap like 5 to 50 pounds. Only the very good looking camera's that used to be top of the bill, for years, still cost some money. If you have a mint camera, some times it brings lots of money, but only one camera each year is found at the max. I think if you still can find a repair shop, it will cost much more than a second hand camera on ebay. If you can't get the camaer to work, with a new set of batteries, don't spend your money on it.

If you had a compact camera it would say 10x zoom what is the equivilent in a 70mm -300mm tamron


A 35-80 mm lens is 2.3X zoom. Divide 80 by 35 and you'll get the result.

It is usually better to know what the focal length of a lens in "35 mm equivalent" is and judge by that, rather than relying on the "X" power of the lens. For instance, most point and shoot cameras start at about 35 mm and have either a 3X or 4X zoom. This would make it a 35-105 or a 35-140. I've seen some that start at 28 mm, though. A 3X starting at 28 mm is 28-84 and a 4X is 28-112. Neither one is a particularly strong telephoto lens and the 4X is just about the same as the 3X that starts out at 35 mm.

It's also important to realize that tradition dictates that lens focal lengths are usually expressed in terms of "35 mm equivalent," where "35 mm" refers to a 35 mm film camera. This is because of the relation between the sensor size and the actual focal length of the lens and the resultant angle of view of the lens.

I have one point & shoot that is actually a 5.8-24 mm zoom. This is a 4X zoom. The 35 mm equivalent is 28-116 mm. The sensor is 7.2x5.3 mm. (1/1.8") (And I wish I knew someone who could explain how the heck they came up with sensor size terminology!)

I have another point & shoot that is actually a 5.7-17.1 mm zoom. This is a 3X zoom. The 35 mm equivalent is 34-102 mm. "How could a shorter focal length give a longer 35 mm equivalent?" you might ask. It's because the sensor is only about 5x4 mm. (1/2.5")

I have a few Nikon DSLR's and - thankfully - they all have the same size sensor. They all have a "lens factor" of 1.5. This means that you just multiply the actual focal length of the lens to get the 35 mm equivalent and then you can make comparisons accurately from camera-to-camera. Most Canon's, for instance, have a lens factor of 1.6. On a Nikon DSLR, a 28 mm lens is the "35 mm equivalent" of a 42 mm lens. On most Canon DSLR's, the same 28 mm lens is the equivalent of a 45 mm lens.

These example are just to show you how freaking confusing it can all become if you try to make sense of the "X" power of a zoom lens.

Bottom line...

Check the 35 mm equivalent specifications for the lens. This way, you will be leveling the field and comparing apples to apples. More or less.

Focal length equivalents

If you are considering a Nikon such as the D60, D80, D90, etc.,the standard lens sold with the camera is 18-135mm. This is not the sameas an 18-135mm on a 35mm film camera. The equivalent 35mm film cameralens would be 27-202mm (you multiply by 1.5), about the same as what youhave now. If I were planning to do wildlife photography, I would buy a usedNikkor ED 70-300mm AF lens on E-bay. You should be able to get one for$200 or less (the new price is $550+). This lens is designed for a 35mmfilm camera and is the equivalent of a 105-450mm when used on a Nikon digital cameras. Additionally, it is compadable with the automatic features of the Nikon digital camera bodies. This would give you an excellent portrait lens at 105mm and extra long reachfor wildlife. The fast shutter speed and stabilization circuit on thedigital camera should make it usable in daylight without a tripod. I havethis lens on a Nikon film camera and it is a superior lens. At a 1/1000second or faster shutter speed, I get sharp hand held photos.

Focusing to infinity


Hey redbarnz,
If the lens won't focus to infinity then there is probably something physically wrong with the lens. With the dominance of digital equipment you can find fantastic deals on manual focus 35 mm lenses. I would look at Canon manual focus lenses rather than sticking with vivitar. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Dropped the lens, nothing broke but focus ring came undone


This will need technical service eventually. Try temporary solution with Sellotape or similar
