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 :sweatsm: the Samsung D-Xenon 100mm macro :lovegrin:



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

took it for a spin ard almost immediately after getting it (it was drizzling too :sweat:) 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 :embrass:

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 :bsmilie:

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

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