A pleasure to use

  • 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. The hood makes it quite long but it really does a great job at keeping out weather and glare so I leave it on most of the time.

  • Summary: I love this lens. It is the sharpest lens I own. Also works really well with the new Pentax 1.4x teleconverter.

Pentax macro shooter - this is it!

Gabriel Cardoso, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: Have to echo other reviewers here... Too many pros and only a few cons. These first: Too specialist of a lens - because of that 1. hard to autofocus - long focus travel makes it tough when it doesn't lock right away it takes a while for the 2nd try because the focus travel is really long, you usually focus manually macro shots so understandable but the 2. lack of focus limiter undermines the lens versatility. 3.

Best price (as of 11-5-14) I've EVER SEEN on this INCREDIBLE lens that's also FF compatible!

Jeff Hayes, Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned this lens since September 2011, and it's one of the best lens purchases I've ever made. At the time I paid $620, and got what I considered a decent deal, as the MSRP on it was $749 at the time (I think). Since then, they've RAISED the MSRP on this lens to $849.95, which as good as it is is still a bit too much, I think. And often its NOT been discounted, OR it was only discounted BACK to its OLD MSRP of $749. Seeing it for $576 here on Nov.

Great Glass Great Lens

Michael, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been looking for a solid macro lens for my Pentax K5 and after reading reviews all over it was an easy decision. Of course, the price was always more than I could cough up. After patiently watching Amazon for several months now I watched the price drop then jump back up. It was like watching the stock market. In any case, the price dropped again and I made my move. I'm now the proud owner of a remarkable 100mm Macro.

superb lens

A. Hoffman, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: Amazing glass. By far my best Pentax lens. Super sharp, amazing bokeh, nice build quality. A "Limited" lens but without the name attached to it. Only downside is slow autofocus due to having no focus limiter (can be avoided by using quick shift focus to get into the ballpark of focus range before auto focusing). Manual focus is preferred and with a macro what most will be using anyway. Also great for portraits at f2.8.
