K3 with DA* 50-135mm and 1.4x TC
This is one of the best bubble shots I've seen! I don't want to think about how many tries it took to get right. (and if you tell me you got it on the first try I am going to hate you, LOL!!!!)
Thanks for sharing,
Eric

What he said.

Many more great images here. I just went over four pages, having been tied up with non photo stuff for a week.

You have to get your priorities in order.

How true, but how else am I going to get the $$$ for the FA 100 macro I just chased in the marketplace?

I had PF Marketplace send me anything on Pentax 100 macro and it came today and I just sent my Paypal info to the sender. Sorry you are too late. O; It must be that new leg that isn't broken in yet. How is it coming along?

It stil hurts, but it's getting better. I don't know if I'll ever get the lens. Tess has th tamron 90 macro, I have the Sigma 70 macro... it wold just seem a bit redundant, except for the par where it saves me 150 grams over my Sigma 70 macro. How much can you pay to save 150 grams?

Yes it was my first time I have ever shot bubbles. The K3 has turned out to be a great camera for me.

I purchased the 100mm DA macro when the price went below $400, despite owning an excellent Tokina 90mm f2.5 with 1:1 adapter that I've owned since some time in the 1980's. But, the Pentax 100mm is a LOT smaller/lighter than the Tokina + adapter. Is it also better? Probably at least as good, but significantly more convenient because of its size, weight, filter thread, and focusing to 1:1 without an adapter. The deep hood is overkill, but OK. The Tokina did not come with a hood, and the front element is far forward, unlike the Pentax with a front element far back from the filter threads, enough to obviate mounting the hood in many situations.

The wall is like a barrier between two universes: one orderly, clean, hard-working, purposeful; the other unrestrained, chaotic, care-free, maybe a touch lawless, arguably creative.
