Mid-Telephoto Club 100mm-200mm

Thanks for the opportunity to show off our special lenses, special techniques, and special focal lengths in this forum! The newest lens club (24mm Club - Any and All 24mm) got me thinking that there's a pretty large swath of focal lengths that seem to have been forgotten. And these are some of my favorites because Pentax has a few unique lenses that fit this description.

This lens club is for all lenses from 100mm on the short end to 200mm on the long end, and all focal lengths in between. Primes preferred, Zooms welcome. If the focal length is between 100-200, then bring it on!*

*except 135mm. You have your own thread for that. Unless you really want to post here too, then bring that on as well.

Top to bottom:
M100/2.8
M120/2.8
M150/3.5

awesome idea, Jason!

unfortunately, I only have a 100m and a 200mm.... nothing in-between...

perhaps I need to remedy that, but not a 135mm (been there, done that, found it uninspiring)



in the mean time, SMC A 200mm f4:








I've recently used this lens for the SIC and it's a keeper!

and the SMC A 100mm f4 Macro








but I had to admit, I've always had a fascination with the Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX lens...

My contribution is from my Super Takumar 150 f/4. I was really shocked at the images from this lens on the K-1, not what I expected...

My version of this lens is the "Super Multi Coated".
Good little mid-tele.
