Ummm... Then how abt Samsung Dxenon 100mm 2.8? since it manufactured same place. Using Scheneider lens.
Actually I bought that one since its cheaper than DFA. :P
Quite alright for me.
Will post a pic of it. Dun mind if I share this lense since its the same K-mount and design all the same with the DFA 100mm 2.8. But the WR DFA looks more Chio and compact.
But I still want the DFA.

I was the one looking for Fengwei lah!!! I have an offer to get a used but very good condition DFA100 (Non-WR) version so checking with Mr Fengwei on the main differences between the new and old version. I have read my reviews on both lens and seems like the pros for the new version are as below:
1. nicer and round bokeh... (but does not really make a diff to me)
2. better finishing (the lens really look very very chio)
3. smoother manual focusing ring (tired at SAM last Saturday and got to admit that it is damn silky smooth)
4. WR obviously
5. Can't think of anymore now...
So I have to evaluate the cost savings for the used lens as compared to a new copy of the WR version since I will be testing the used lens later this afternoon with the seller. Need honest opinions from those who have used both. Thanks.

The second hand DFA100 macro you are buying is at least 3 year old, the DFA100WR macro is brand new lens. If you think the $340 difference is significant enough to you, then just buy the earlier DFA100 macro. It's a great lens anyway. But to me the newer WR version is a better lens, worth the difference. I'd go for the newer WR one given the choice.
As to the comparison, please take a look at my thread here:
