Oooh nice! Now I can take macro flower shots in the rain! :-D


Seriously, it does look sweet. The focus ring like the FA31 Lim in a nice touch.

I have serious doubts. Where is the focus limiter?

Well, it's just a rumor.

D-FA without A-Ring? Funny!

It looks like 35 Macro/77 Ltd getting long and long!

More specifically it means it can be used with full frame/film cameras, right?

I'm calling shannanigans. This just looks like a photoshop mock up of what someone wishes for.

As you may see, now it does not.

Also there were only two D-FA lenses, and both were macro.

As the lens use "limited" design it would have been easier to believe the rumor if the lens was called "DA 1:2.8 100mm Macro Limited"
I think it would be difficult to have this lens weather sealed with an open slit for the distance scale, instead of the closed window the DA* lenses use.

D-FA

Cool, I hope a FF Pentax DSLR is not far off. It looks like a lot of the lens manufacturers are moving away from aperture rings (Nikon, Canon, Sony and Pentax). Be different Pentax, keep the aperture ring! It might be more difficult to make the lens WR with a moving ring though.

It looks cool, I almost want it to be genuine... but, no focus limiter? That's a big mistake...
No collapsible hood, as well. Hmm....

Looks like photoshopped Limited lens to me.

While I believe there may be a new macro lens coming soon (current DFAs are quite old), it's not gonna look like that...

But hey, at least we have some rumors about lenses, not only cameras, cameras, cameras
