Testing new lens
Lens: Phoenix 100mm F3.5 Macro Camera: K-3 
Posted By: boriscleto, 03-05-2016, 02:53 PM

Testing my new Phoenix AF 100mm F3.5 Macro. It's a Cosina, same optics as the Pentax FA 100mm F3.5, shows up as the FA in Exif too.





I think my Sigma 50mm is getting sold, even though it is 1:1 and the Phoenix is 1:2. I got the 1:1 adapter with the lens...My Rokunar 90mm F/2.5 might go too. Or maybe I will sell the Tamron 90mm F/2.5 52BB.

Your test shots look like a pass IMO.

OK, you can stop testing now. You have perfected it.
