I have a Tamron 90mm Macro, would adding a 35mm or 50mm Macro do anything for me?

I concur. My 90mm is an excellent headshot lens amongst other uses.

I have seen some good prices on the Sigma 50mm EX DG and that got me thinking.

I do like bugs, but I have done flowers and other objects.

I enjoy macro photography so I am wondering if a shorter focal length lens will help me explore other possibilities.

Thanks.

I like my Tamron, it is a good lens but I wonder if there would be any value to me adding another macro lens of a shorter focal length.

I also have a reverse lens setup for extreme macro.

I do already have 35 and 50mm lenses but not in the macro category.

Are there things I could do with a 35 or 50 that would be better or easier than with the 90mm?

Thanks.

Right now there is no super zoom in the Pentax world so an 18-300 could potentially be a viable option. I love my Sigma 18-300. Excellent vacation lens and sometimes I just walk around with it. For example, during the worst days of the Plague I would just stroll around town with it. It was a safe and easy outdoor pastime.

I particularly like the deal on the second page with the 16-85. If I haven’t been spending my fun money on Telescope gear that would be my purchase.

Thanks for the update.

The pre-announcement of this lens with it just showing up on the roadmap makes me wonder if this will be the policy going forward.

People will need to search a bit by different colors and mounts. In some cases they list both Pentax and Pentax K.

But some of these might be appealing.

Yes, screwdrive does work and for things like my 35mm 2.4 it makes for a light lens that still focuses okay.

But other SLR macro lenses have quiet and fast focusing motors. Why shouldn’t Pentax? I certainly use my Tamron 90 for macro work but I also use it because it is a great focal length for head shots.

A modern lens design with at least a decent motor at “slightly more expensive” (which I would take to mean anything up to maybe $900) could be a product that would appeal to a lot of people that like that length and/or macro work.

If it is a modern design with a motor and “slightly more expensive” it will probably be something I will get at some point.

If it has a focus motor I am very interested. I guess I need to just wait and see what they do.

Lots of speculation here but only a few lines of facts.

I tried it on tripods, backpacks and filters and it seems to work on everything.

I don’t know the expiry date so use you best judgement.

K&F Concept: Professional Photography Accessories

The code is KFFB15.

This lowers the cost of the tripod I reviewed to $91.
