SMC Pentax A 100/2.8 macro

Great lens - suitable for macro, nature shots and portraits. Razor sharp.

It doesn't have to be used as a macro lens, it picks out detail beautifully as a short telephoto....



Fairly heavy crop

I haven't actually done many macro photos with this lens since I got it earlier this year, but that's OK... it's good for about anything a 100mm lens would normally be good for.

He smacked the window and was stunned for a while, so we took care of him while he recovered. He didn't thank us or nothing.

I've put this lens up for sale twice, and nobody has bitten (twice), I guess I'm twice as stupid as I thought I was (and lucky it didn't sell)....
