Unlike most other Macro lenses in the 50-55mm range, the Konica Hexanon AR 3.5/55mm is a simple Tessar type with only four lenses in three groups. The Canon FD 3.5/50mm Macro and the Nikkor 3.5/55mm Micro have five lenses, and the Minolta Rokkor 3.5/50mm is a classical Planar type with six lenses in four groups. Nevertheless the Hexanon performs quite well in the infinity range: its corner resolution is nearly as good as the Canon and the Nikkor, and even better than the Minolta.
