Konica 50mm f12 for leica M



thks Jeffery, it seems quite nice for this lens but would it be difficult to focus ? And what's the price of it ?

I bought a Konica 50mm f/1.2 last year. I am not satisfy its result because its contrast is not up to my requirement. I prepare to sell it out soon. I prefer the Leica Noctilux 50/F1 or Summilux 50/1.4 for low light photographing.
