Konica released a few special edition Hexar AF cameras
This is your chance to own some of them (or all of them). I have currently got three very special Hexars available for purchase. These are all exceedingly rare cameras, so you be be the envy of your friends by owning them.
I don’t really need to go into detail about the Hexar AF, I have done that in other posts.
So, without further ado, here are the Hexars.
Gold camera
Konica Minolta Hexar AF 35mm Rangefinder camera Gold anniversary Exc
No 98 of only 300 made, this camera is boxed and with all original paperwork.
This camera has signs of use and marks on the coating of gold, it is by no means a mint camera by my standards. Though it is still a beautiful camera, of that there is no doubt and it would be certain to have the laydeez swarming around you, as if you were a movie star.
The camera is in perfect working condition and the lens is clean. This is still a collectors camera, but not a showpiece collectors camera.
¥130,000 plus shipping
Rhodium camera
Konica Minolta Hexar AF 35mm Rangefinder camera Rhodium Mint
This is the ultra rare and ultra desirable Rhodium version of the camera. There were hardly any of this version made, and they came with the beautiful off-pink Rhodium coating and custom brown leatherette.
The lens and viewfinder are both clean with no hazing or fungus, there is no visible dusting. There are very very light marks to the body. It does not come with a case or anything, just as is. Regardless of that this is an extremely collectable camera and a must for any serious collectors set. This is a legendary piece of camera history, get it before anyone else.
¥100,000 plus shipping

Konica Minolta Hexar AF 35mm Rangefinder camera Brown leather. V. Rare. Mint
This is a very rare version of the camera, with brown leather covering the body. Officially these were never made, but a few made it out of the factory. Apparently from what I have discovered, this was a sample unit passed to select stores to check for sales viability, but this one made it out of the store! This is about as rare as it gets, you will not find another like this for a long long time.
The lens and viewfinder are both clean with no hazing or fungus, there is no visible dusting. There are light marks to the body, but that is it.
Come and own this piece of photographic history now.
¥75,000 plus shipping

So, there you go. Remember, I have mouths to feed (mine, mainly, my wife doesn’t eat much) which is why I sell cameras. Please don’t ask for silly discounts, unless you actually want me to call you horrible names. If you need more pictures or info about the cameras then please contact me and I shall send you everything you need.
