SMC M 100mm macro & 400mm; Any Pics?


Picked up a SMC M 100mm macro & SMC M 400mm; Any Pics? Any comments on these M lenses versus their other Pentax versions?

Sorry no pics for or from M100/4 Macro or the M400.

Just want to say that I prefer M and K lenses over A lenses in terms of the construction. K and M lenses are made of metal, very very sturdy and smooth focusing. K lenses are generally bigger and heavier than M lenses. So M lenses are "just right" for me, not as heavy as the K lenses and better built than the A lenses.

That said, A lenses are easier to operate on "crippled" mount DSLRs.
