Pros: Very light, uncluttered, sharpness of images

Cons: Long autofocus because the limiter is missing

Opinion: I use it with a k1. Excellent macro lens, very light and compact and that one can always carry with you in the backpack if ever happen some strange insect or, why not, some portrait (the blurred is not bad). They have it in the macro sets at the 50 macro f 2.8 for a greater versatility of shots, although the definition of 100mm is in the specimens in my superior possession. Manual focus is always recommended in low-contrast situations to avoid confusing your photo machine with a crazy screwdriver.

Pros: returns very detailed images, bright, compact, pentax colors

Cons: autofocus without limiter

Opinion: It took me a while to appreciate this goal, at first I considered it unusable with autofocus; in fact, it was very difficult to focus even outdoors in the sunlight. The Reflex moped kept going back and forth seamlessly. Then there was the turn with the most appropriate setting of the maf on the k1 (in afc spot mode on the center points), at which point the blender is still there but much less. The optical quality is exceptional as well as the weatherproof construction, in conclusion if it had the internal ultrasonic engine and the limiter as its counterpart Tamron 90mm macro 2.8 would be much more usable , to resume insects for example. We hope that Pentax will update this goal, which in many ways is a jewel of optics and makes it adapted to the times and the competition.

Pros: Really great sharpness at every aperture; Excellent construction and valuable materials; Contained chromatic aberrations, versatility in the use of various photographic genres (portrait on all).

Cons: In my opinion one: no focus limiter.

Opinion: It happens that you buy a lens for a photographic genre and then you discover its versatility of use in other types of shots. That was my case. Taken to make Macro, as is normal it is, and used on par for portraiture. In macro, on tripod, with remote shutter release and micrometric sled it is difficult to put the autofocus in crisis. By clicking in manual focus the ring responds with fluidity and gives a certain pleasure in the use. The bokeh of the lens is in my opinion really intriguing, never nervous, but it is the transition from the focus area to the out of focus to be a true added value because it is really gradual and, although very engraved, never annoying or contrived. The surprise is to see him work well in the portrait because, although we can think the opposite, the lens behaves well within a certain range of distance from the subject, say from 1.5 Mt. Up to 4/5MT. In this scissor the portrait is amazing: The lens returns an incredible detail and I like it very much, even in this genre!. It seems to me that beyond that distance the lens does not work as well as it can do for example a 70-200 or a fixed 200 (but it is a simple impression). In this context my reduced experience has not made me notice any particular criticality in autofocus, of course it takes a little patience with subjects not really static but the children can still photograph them. It ends up being a bright tele that is worth considering also as a portrait lens because, moreover, the Pentax colors in this have a lot to say!. Simply the lens with more sharpness than my wretched optical park!!!. I recommend the purchase dispatedly.

Pros: Sharpness, bokeh, weather resistance.

Cons: Autofocus

Opinion: If this lens had a height autofocus it would be first prize in its category. I did not want to take a vote for this because I often use a manual focus and I must say that it was love at first sight. A unique design and still unimitated, does not resemble any other Pentax lens or other brands. What about, it's one of the first I bought of the Pentax and I don't really think about giving it away. On the K-1 then found its right size, that full frame. It is very valid not only for the macros and all in all quite bright, resistant to rain and bad weather... what else can you want?

Pros: size, optical quality, fabulous blurred

Cons: AF

Opinion: I added 10 of the evaluation, the limits of the AF - strictly speaking - should preclude the maximum rating of this lens, but over the years I have had the opportunity to try macro lenses of other brands and there is an aspect - for me fundamental in a macro lens - that makes this Pentax lens irreplaceable: a blurred so softly blurred I find it only with this 100mm, a passage so soft between fire and out of focus I get it only with him and then when a lens becomes irreplaceable as you do not to give it 10? rnOf course then has the advantages of Pentax optics, the build quality, the incredibly small size to be FF optics, the tropicalization that makes the pair with the tropicalized cameras of the brand.
