Sale is pending on DA* 60-250.

The Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 DI is available. I know I am going to miss this macro, the only reason that I want to sell is because I want to try the Pentax WR 100mm f/2.8 Macro.

Thanks,
Hin

Hi Hin - Too bad you missed my D FA 100 Macro, but it's not too late to get my AF160 ring flash! Works great with the 100mm lens.

Thanks! I sure miss your DFA macro. I am a LENS guy in and out of LBA and ring flash will take a back-seat in my planning.

The DA* 60-250 is now sold and is on its way to new owner. The Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro is available.

Cheers,
Hin

I don't have many pictures with this lens yet. Here are two casual shots with K-5

I hate to post it on ebay but I am hoping someone can help me with a purchase. This lens is in mint condition and I am stumbled with little interest.

I am surprised that you are selling this Tamron 90/2.8 because you want the D-FA 100/2.8 WR. The latter is a fine lens to be sure but the Tamron 90/2.8 is ever so slightly sharper across all aperture than the D-FA 100/2.8 but I believe that you also shoot multiple platform - a Sony MILC wasn't it? The lack of aperture ring on the new D-FA 100/2.8 WR, means that you cannot port this lens to your Sony. I shoot with M43 (maybe a Sony down the road as well) and being able to share the Tammy between the K-5 and the G6 is a huge bonus.

Thanks for the valuable pointers. I am aware of the limitations especially the absence of aperture ring in D-FA 100mm WR, I do have three separate copies of Pentax K to Sony E adapter with aperture adjustments and that is not the ideal solution but it will work to adjust the apertures in 5 steps with estimate. I usually shoot 1 step from wide open or a mid-aperture as in f/5.6 and f/8.0, I should be okay. If no one buy my Tamron, I will stay put and not splurge for another macro lens. The Tamron fits me well but the recent price drop get me for the exchange idea as I am hoping WR in the lens get me more comfortable with the rare wet winter in CA and occasional ski outing in Tahoe area.

I will roll out other lens for sale as well such as a Super-Takumar 105mm f/2.8 and possibly a Contax G 90mm f/2.8 with E adapter if I manage to exchange the macro lens successfully and that the usage without aperture ring goes well for my use.



I was hoping that the Pentax WR 100mm can somewhat replace my Tamron 90, Super-Takumar 105mm and Contax G 90mm, and with weather sealing, it seems like an idea worth pursuing. But that is only if I manage to find a buyer for all three lenses.

Missing the focus limiter is a concern and that will hamper my usage but I am hoping the quick-shift focus makes up for the lost of focus limiter and MF/AF toggle in the Tamron.

Again, thanks for your valuable inputs.

Hate to list on ebay but it is now in Tamron SP 272E 90mm F 2 8 AF Di Lens for Pentax Ricoh Mint 725211727149 | eBay in case you prefer to buy it on ebay. It is US only on ebay and I prefer to sell it on PF.

You can help with my dilemma in getting Pentax DF-A 100mm f/2.8 macro WR in Price Watch thread

Thanks,
Hin

If you use the Novoflex adapter with the blue ring for aperture control, it matters not that there is no manual aperture control. I've used it on my Leica MP 240 with Pentax lens.

I find it frustrating and slow, metering wide open, rotating the ring, tracking the exposure needle in the EVF until it's stopped down where I want it, then altering the shutter speed or ISO back to the right level.

I ended up buying an FA35 so I didn't have to keep doing this drill with my DA35. 😕
