Yeah, every part of the lens can be a photographer's mount

The FA version ?!? Who needs AF with a macro lens, I for one would never use that feature. I would get mad because of the constant hunting

That's a cool pic! Too bad the person who made it didn't change the filter to say SMC 58 cm, instead of mm's.

Hey frank, our brother marcus is already living out his dream since he already has this lens...

Yeah I agree with you the FA version is so much better. It would be a stunning as a tele as well.

That looks like A* 200mm macro.

It is sooooo bizarre. Funny as well. I think I am hugging books to sleep at the moment

He needs to grow longer legs to wrap around his dream properly

By the way check out the dof scale, tiniest I've ever seen on any lens.

There are only 4 states in America where that kind of thing is legal! Maybe Singapore swings a bit more.

Yeah, I know, actually tried Marcus's A*200/4 macro already. Great lens, but I do prefer auto focusing nowadays, unless it's a wide to mid lens

Yeah, you are right. 58mm can't be that big

It's not just about AF, it's about the DREAM I've tried the A*200/4 macro, a great macro lens. Actually I can have it anytime I want because I still can find it. It's the FA*200/4 that is really hard to get That's why it's my dream lens
