Da* 200 macro

I know, it doesn't exist, but using this lens on the K20 at minimumm distance can yield some good pix. Below Skipper at 1/1000 sec., F6.7..........

The DA* 300 works well too, but for some reason I like the 200 better......

200mm is about as long as I would like to go to try and shoot subjects like these. Any longer and you would have to be so far away that I don't think you would really be able to see you subject well enough with just your own eyes (unmagnified). I have often remarked I would really like to see Pentax introduce a 60-120 true macro zoom reminiscent of Nikons 70-180 macro. That's 90-180 eqivalent and a really good range for a macro lens.

Mike.
