Pentax D-FA 100 Macro as a Telephoto

I love this lens used as a telephoto as this is as long as I would ever shoot. Effectively a 150mm lens...Very sharp and Light.

Truley one of the better lenses I have purchased during my LBA phase. It doesn't have a star by its name, but the clearity and sharpness of this lens I think pentax should give it a honorary one. I will...Seeing is believing ...example of a full size picture and cropped on the tractor . No loss of detail. Not many of my lens can do that.

Given the recent photozone review on this lens, D FA 100 macro is not as weak and unsharp as other competition brands.

Maybe this lens is not fast enough but certainly very very sharp between f4.5 to 5.6.

Colour just stands out from the sign postage in the photo
