Thread: New Lens Acquisition: Samsung D-Xenon 100m Macro

    Default New Lens Acquisition: Samsung D-Xenon 100m Macro

    Hi all,

    was lens shopping the other day for a macro lens for my KX and read from many reviews and advice from fellow hobbyists to invest in a 100mm macro instead of a 50mm, as its more useful for taking insects... less likely to "spook" them.

    unfortunately, i couldn't find the D-FA 100mm macro anywhere... didn't feel comfortable shipping it in from overseas cos of uncertainties over warranty issues so was feeling lousy for awhile...

    until i found its clone the Samsung D-Xenon 100mm macro



    really liked the blue ring on the lens as it matches the colour on my K-X body

    took it for a spin ard almost immediately after getting it (it was drizzling too ) and here are some samples.

    Please feel free to give your comments. i believe any inadequacy in the photos are due to this amateur hobbyist's flawed technique rather than the shortcomings in the lens

    the K-X is indeed, a very fun and very forgiving camera...

    just wondering from more experienced pentaxians: would you consider a samsung lens for your pentax if the equivalent model from pentax was unavailable?

    cos i'm personally tempted to get a a few more samsung lenses cos the blue strip is really quite nice and matches the navy K-X very well

    I've owned a Samsung 18-250. The build quality is good & it's made in Japan.

    Yeah, this FA 50mm f1.4 is one of the favorite lens of Pentaxian.
    I bought this lens twice.
