Wanted - Acquired: Pentax 100mm Macro - Tamrom 90mm Macro - Sigma 70mm macro

I'm looking for a Pentax 100mm f/2.8 macro. It doesn't have to be the current model, it can be the F or FA. I would also be interested in the Tamron 90mm macro and the Sigma 70mm macro. So basically I am looking for a longer range macro that is 1:1.

Please PM me here if you have one for sale.

Thanks!

Yes that's a nice lens if you can get it for a decent price...I probably wouldn't want to pay any more than $65 or max $70 for it. Not sure if you know about the Pentax A lenses or not...they will have auto aperture(and a aperture ring), but will be manual focus. This is not a knock on the lens at all, but more of an fyi that you will have to focus it manually so more than likely you will not be able to use it when you need fast focusing.

One of the great things about Pentax is you can use all of their lenses from throughout the years. This is a great way to explore some different lenses at very reasonable prices.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I agree about the weather...hopefully things will cool off a little soon so we can get some nice pics. Everything is brown and and it's so hot that it seems like even the bugs don't want to come out for some macro shots. Lol!

Not the "buy it now" price...it's a little high. You can get it new at Amazon.com and many of the other online stores for $469. But if you can get it for the starting bid of $275 or somewhere in that range then that would be a good deal. I purchased the older model, the 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 a couple months ago for right at $255.

Hello from one newbie to another. One lens suggestion I'd like to throw in is the Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4, or the older 2.8-4.5. I consider this to be one of the better walk around lenses. It had good image quality, is fairly fast, good build quality, and a nice range. You can find some pretty good deals on ebay for them if you keep a close eye out. The only con is that some think it's kind of big/heavy, but I like the solid lenses with an nice large objective.

Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to take a minute to say hi. I'm a newbie here and am the proud owner of the amazing K-5. I've had it for a couple months now and it really is an amazing camera. I used to shoot Canon...had a T2I and then a 60D, but decided to sell it all and jump to the world of Pentax. The Canon's were nice, but the K-5 is on a whole different level. I've been a frequent visitor to this forum since I got my camera, but have yet to post. Figured it was time to register and say Hi and Thanks to all those on the Pentax forum who have provided me with a world of helpful info. Anyway, I look forward to getting to know everyone and being a part of the Pentax community.
