I have had this lens a good few years, it is my only true "Macro" lens
Well built, the same construction as the DFA 100mm.(not the WR version) I got it at a substantial discount over the Pentax version hence the high score fo vale for money
Sharp, decent Bokeh. AF can be slow, and there is no limiter so it will rack to one end of the focus throw and back, although I normally use it as a manual focus lens. I have used this on K20, K30 K5 and K3 bodies with no complaints
