Welcome aboard! Plenty of old primes to enjoy, that's for certain. And the DFA 100 is an excellent lens, both as a macro and as a short-ish tele. A bit slow to focus, sure, but you'll be hard pressed to find a sharper lens.

Welcome aboard!
If you're interested in insects you'll find lots of people here using the 100mm macro lenses.
