Whoops

Tax return arrived in the mail this morning, causing–yes, causing–me to immediately log on to B&H and order myself a smc Pentax D FA 100mm/2.8 WR Macro.

I even stumped for next day so that I can take it with me to England tomorrow night!

Good deal!

Did you order one for the rest of us too! What, not enough tax return!

Great lens. Enjoy it and enjoy the trip! You'll need that WR in the UK!

Cheers!

It arrived in time for the trip and so far, I am loving this lens!! It's truly wonderful to use and the results look promising on camera review.

Only three days of rain so far in the UK ... but it's due to brighten up tomorrow. I'll post any keepers on my return home.

Some shots with the new lens!!

Finally back from the trip and found time to upload my initial shots with the new lens... all I can say is that I am super -pleased with this purchase. Easy to use, perfect out of the gate on my K-7, almost every photo was a keeper -- at least from a quality standpoint.

Some camera flash shots here, which are a little harsh... but generally very little PP overall, with just a little tone/contrast adjustment and some noise reduction from LR3 on the ISO 800s.

Here's a few samples:
