Summary: I'm not sure that words can express how much I love this lens. It is the finest that I have ever placed on any of my cameras, ever. It's durable, stable, and I have no idea why Pentax would want to change it but I'm glad I found one of the out of production lenses before they were all bought it.
Summary: This is the best lens I own. I still have the Lester Dine 105mm Macro, which is known as a classic macro lens, but find I now only use this Pentax 100mm. The autofocus is wonderfully accurate: 100% blow-up photos are still as sharp as a honed edge.
Summary: I bought this Pentax lens for my Pentax K-5 and haven't used it much lately but it seems like a very good lens. The construction quality is first rate and the optics are really good too. This is my first macro lens so I'm still getting used to it.
Summary: Absolutely stellar. The build quality is superb. The manual focus is smooth and consistent which makes close macro work much easier. given its reach (100mm) and bright aperture (f/2.8) the lens is surprisingly compact.
