New 90mm Macro

Hi Guys,
I just bit the bullet and bought a slightly used

Pentax DFA 645 HD 2,8 / 90 mm ED AR SR Macro.

do you guys have any feedback or comments on this one?

Hope that I'll use it enough to justify the expense...

cheers
Stephan

Update:
got the lens, but AF has delay, before it starts. it's about 1/2 sec before it works, then it's quite quick.
can anybody check theirs, if they got the same behaviour, I gotta decide, if I send it back. it's a bit annoying for portraiture, and that's what it's for, in my book.

I'll echo the sentiments.....it's got Zeiss-like qualities.

I agree, the most outstanding 645 lens. It rivals the Zeiss Otus 85mm in terms of sharpness, but has less micro-contrast I would say.

Congrats!!

I'm sorely tempted to get one myself for more telephoto landscape shots but am also concerned I wont use it enough to justify the expense. I'm sure you will enjoy it though!
