I had the lens and it is a keeper. About the only negative is the cheap silkscreening of the distance scale which can rub off over time but optically it is a nice lens.

Hi Gerry,

I have this lens and it rocks! Make sure you get it with the life size attachment, so it'll go to 1:1. It's a fantastic lens wide open and the it has great detail. It is a little prone to flare if not used with a CPL. If you'd like to see some examples, check out my macro page on Flickr. I love this lens for portraits and macro.

Looking at the mount on the lens, that gold pin at about 2 o'clock looks like the Ricoh pin. You will want to remove that before putting it on your Pentax.
