You are right, but the Paris fair takes place in a park where with a nice sunshine, i had the opportunity to take picts in good conditions, supported by my knee. I compared it together with a number of other lenses like 150/2.8, 400/5.6 ... the 120/4 was simply decieving as far as colour and "piqué" rendering were concerned, what ever tripod or not (which was the case) were available. I have practised macro for a long time and got better results even with my A*200/4 + *istDS.
But of course this was the only one 120mm i tried...

Huh, what, did I miss something? What is that there which Zygonyx has there in his hand. Is this some thing new coming very soon for 645? All the lens roadmap has on it for this year is a med telephoto zoom for this year. That is no zoom. Any better guess on what it is?

Héhé, personally i must say i was not impressed at all by the copy Pentax France held in the paris medium format fair last june... but i used it only in macro shots.

I bet this one (the second pict looks really like a 120 or 135mm) will be far better, and SDM, probably just a few month to wait :
