Hmm... they didn't mention the curved aperture blades in the DFA 100mm WR. Maybe they didn't even notice. :bsmilie:

they did in paragraph 2: "the aperture blades are rounded - helping to produce smoother out-of-focus areas and better bokeh" i felt it was quite a superficial but still positive review.

Some Chinese website made a comparison of the DFA100 WR vs the Canon 100mm macro awhile back. Pentax pwned the Canon. Even the folks at OP tell me this.

Oops, you're right, I must have missed it. :confused:

Unfortunately, still not available in Sgp. Maybe I should ask my Jap colleague to buy one for me. I tried the one without WR, and it produces great bokeh and very sharp portrait pictures. It was an immediate feel from the 70mm one! This was during the model shoot at Kallang, courtesy of SLR Revolution. Wonder when they will organize another one; with a different twist perhaps!

I'm afraid of the answer to this, but anyone knows how much it will be sold for?

Is this lens here yet... :angry:

My money will be spend on the diapers if it doesn't arrived soon :bsmilie:
Just reference your budget to a similar C product. With that, you will be able to buy a cheaper pentax lens PLUS money for the diapers.:).
