Finally getting some photos with the M100 f/4 Macro. Seems like a very sharp lens, I like the bokeh and colors so far. It does have a little haze which is going to affect shooting directly into the sun and other situations, but that was a know issue when I bought it.

still quite a bit of color to work with in the garden and the DA35/2.4 makes it easy to pick it up:

feeling a nibble of LBA...


I'm considering selling/trading my K/300 and A/400 for an upgrade to a 200mm f2.8 or a 300mm f2.8 prime....


of course, I've been reading reviews, etc of DA/FA lenses, but also Tamron Adaptall 300mm f2.8, and 180mm f2.5 (in conjunction with a 1.4TC)....






thoughts - opinions - rants..... al welcome....

I can't help you much here, since I rarely shoot beyond 200mm or so. This might change soon, however - I'm talking to another member about getting his DAL 55-300. That will likely be plenty for me, and I can try to sell off a couple of my shorter zooms to help fund it. But anyway....in the "A Lens Club", member cleaverx has posted some stunning work with his A400 - worth a look if haven't visited there recently. Normhead is another member who makes use of TCs and posts some nice work. Seems like wildlife and birding are the primary uses for the long lenses. Is that something you're looking into doing?

yes - more nature shots that the 55-300 does OK with, but I want more and I think that a good, long prime is the way to go.... I really like my DA L 55-300, but when shooting bison or elk or kestrels at long distance, it just doesn't spark any joy for me....
