Earlier this spring, I bought a very nice 100mm f:2.8 lens, but have yet to find the time to give it a thorough "day in the field" test. What is your opinion of this lens? Many, MANY years ago, I had a 105mm M-42 lens and it was superb! I'm hoping the 100 is as good.
I bought the M100/2.8 and the M35/2 with an MX body back in -78, and that was basically my photo equipment together with a Minox for almost 30 years until I turned digital with the Pentax "cousin" Samsung GX-1L around -06/-07(well, I had a couple of compact digitals from Minolta and Panasonic also parallelly). The Samsung SLR has given place to a K-r and recently a K-3. Back to the lenses; I loved both of them and still do, although I must admit I hardly use them any more in favour of A-lenses. They are extremely well-built (as all M-lenses) compact, fast and sharp. In comparision had a Super Takumar 135/3.5 with an older M-42 analog body, and it┤s sharpness left a bit to be desired, so I sold it in India on a trip there -77 and got more paid for it as new due to extreme customs in India in those days (with the risk of being prosecuted when I left the country). The M100/2.8 is much sharper. The only thing is that it is a bit too long for my liking with the crop factor of 1,5.

I love my trusty SMC Pentax Macro 1:4/100 f4-32 even though it isn't 1:1.

50mm F1.7 wide open

Inside missing parts and not nailed stays in each numbering diaphragm or give this information to the camera. Therefore I treat as a -M

Thanks, Canada _Rockies, for your comment on my photo of the daylily with raindrops. Below is another recent image captured with the same lens -- SMC Pentax Macro 1:4/100 on the K-x.
