Konica AR mount lenses

Konica AR mount is a lens mount designed in 1965 for 35mm film cameras. It is a bayonet mount with three tabs, a focal flange distance of comparably short 40.5mm, a throat diameter of 47mm, and a ~60° clockwise lock. It has “Auto” (A in AR) in its name because it was the first SLR mount to offer automatic exposure. The Auto-Reflex was the first focal-plane shutter automatic exposure 35mm SLR, and the Autoreflex T (1968.) was the first to have a TTL exposure meter.

The lens mount was discontinued in late 1988.

Hexar AR lenses

In the mid-1970s, Konica built a series of budget lenses. The Hexar AR lenses were of simpler construction, and very sturdily built, but also a lot larger and heavier than the Hexanon AR lenses. Optically they are decent, but definitely worse performers than their more expensive counterparts.
