An excellent choice for an additional lens.

  • Summary: Excellent macro abilities, 100mm telephoto angle of view is perfect for cropping out unwanted subject matter. F 2.8 is great for some low light conditions, but is even better combined with the macro for depth of field control. I'm looking forward to shooting many close up shots with this lens.

  • Summary: I was courting this lens for long time, and I didn´t regard when it comes... It works well, fast, a little bit noisy (like old motor-engine), and in few times will become a rare jewel from Pentax.

  • Summary: Great lens... Aperture is 2.8, great images ! Ideal for macro, but also portraits... Much lighter than the other macro lenses such as Sigma or Tamron... Highly recommended !!

It's just what I wanted only better

  • Summary: Easy to focus and finetune with the focus ring but sometimes hunts, but less so now I'm used to it. Pin sharp macro work and good depth of field. Camera usually set at 100 ISO and lens is fine even in dull light.I took a long time deciding as I'm quite new to digital, this lens is equal to any of my film medium format and 135 kit.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Quick Focus, Rugged, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
