M 100/4 Macro

My wife noticed the way the sun was hitting the water drops from an overnight rain shower on her clothesline. I tried with the DA* 16-50, but it just did not come out the way I wanted it to, so I switched to the M 100/4 macro and this is the one that grabs me. The results from this 35 year old lens don't get any complaints from me. The white lump on top of the line is also a water droplet, by the way.

K10D, ISO 200, M 100/4 Macro, 1/180 @ f/8, hand held, shake reduction on, minimum focusing distance gives 1/2 X magnification.



and a 100% crop.

I have used M's on my wife's Panasonic and results were not bad. The toughest thing I found was focusing but the Electronic Viewfinder magnified the image so in that respect pretty nifty. Metering was quite easy and accurate compared to the green button method...

M's on MFT
