As described in detail in the Technical Report, this is a compact medium telephoto lens that uses the Ernostar type lens construction.
The solid rendering from the maximum aperture is common with other HEXANON lenses for M-mount.
Also, the accuracy of the rangefinder linkage was not a problem even with a maximum aperture of f/2.8.
Because of the infrequent use of the medium telephoto and the fact that it overlaps with the CONTAX G SONNAR 90mm, I sold it after a little use.
A medium telephoto lens for the Leica M mount, the longest focal length of the six KONICA M-mount lenses.
The lens hood is a built-in type and is pulled out from the end of the lens barrel.
The lens is compact, with an overall length of 69 mm.
