    But samsung dosent have the DFA 100mm f2.8 macro WR only the none WR one .btw can a pentax camera "communicate" with the lens because newer pentax lenses can do so so wondering if samsung lenses are FULLY compatible with pentax cameras.

    which aspect of "compatibility" are u concerned abt?

    the mount's the same, can auto-focus, it auto focuses correctly, can set AF point, can set aperture on body, the camera correctly identifies the focal length and as far as i've used it, i've not encountered any issues with it

    anyone with more experience with this lens can comment?

    and precisely because we have to make choices to stretch limited financial resources, its important to make wise choices so we dun end up losing money on unsuitable lenses.
    Thanks detritus, i really have very limited financial resources which est. 2 lens(1k+- each) per year is my limit... but lucky i am too picky on IQ... i will aim the DFA 100m macro for the next buy.. since it is within the buget and not very far different from the 35mm macro in terms of $$

    also really thanks about brother up there talk about 1:1 macro, else i will sure go for zoom macro lens...

    It's much easier when you've a strict CFO.

    Anyway, TS has already decided to go for the DA35. Don't mean to be a party-pooper, but close thread? Can talk about macro in the appropriate thread. Makes research easier too. Hope you guys understand.

    DA35mm takes a 49mm filter, which is getting harder to find.
    Good ones would be B+W, Hoya Super HMC, Rodenstock, Heliopan, but can be pricey locally.
    I'm looking for a few pieces of 49mm myself...

    I bought from OP today a B+W 49mm MRC. Still thinking for used on my 100mmWR or 43 silver limited. It looks awkward on the 43 sliver as its in black color.
