    i love the voigtlander. its a wonderful piece of glass.

    i know of 3 copies in the local pentax community

    may have more but i dunno the other owners.

    There was A200 f4 going at US 2.8K, either evil bay or the other forums, not too long ago.

    As far as bokeh is concerned, its easier to have creamier bokeh from A200 f4.

    Hand held is difficult and the downside is the weight.

    For Ben, he is looking for FA 200 f4

    Well... cheaper but different.

    Anyway, important thing is the pix la not the gear.

    I'll prefer a dfa100wr to the tammy. I find it to be a much more elegant lens. Wr also doesn't hurt.

    FA200 macro is a real gem if it can be found its super rare. Only 1000 ever made iirc.

    upgrade to a K5 lor... and nobody ever said that u can't use a WR lens on a non WR body...

    i never read the review but its not impossible for the sigma to be "sharper".

    more to the point is whether this kind of marginal performance increase matters for a macro lens which is normally stepped down to abt F8 when shooting at 1:1 magnification, and whether u want to lug the heavier sigma 105 HSM around all day.

    i consider the DFA100WR as my "lightweight" macro setup when i don't want to lug around anything heavier. it gets the job done.

    1st of all, its not fat.

    2nd of all, for THAT price, i can get a new 7D with MPE-65. just need to top up for the MT-24 twin flash.

    i'll buy it if they refresh it and make a DFA or DA* version.

    this one at this price? no dice.
