My first Macro lens, the DFA 100mm Macro WR. Here are my 1st few shots with it!

Just got my 1st macro lens, the DFA 100mm Macro WR today. I love the build and feel of this lens, it really handles and feels like a Limited. The IQ and colour rendering is quite similar to the DA 70 imo and it is pretty sharp even wide open but AF is slower due to the longer throw so might not be as good for street photography.

I took a few test pics with it to share.

1) F2.8

2) F2.8

3) F2.8

4) F3.5

Very nice looking series from such a great lens! I really hope to pick up one of these soon as your shots really show how good of a lens it is.

Thanks for sharing,

Thanks guys! It's really a great little lens and I am pretty amazed by it's Limited-like IQ. It is definitely a keeper for me! Will try to take some macro pics and post it up soon.
