Hello,
I have been hanging around in the Pentax forum for awhile. Since macro shots seem to be my primary interest I thought I would post this set here instead of there. I have only been using a Dslr for a few months but my Kiron 105mm 2.8 macro has become one of my favorite lenses on the K100d. Constructive criticism is welcome, I am new and looking to improve:

Tim

Third bee. I was actually supposed to be mowing the yard when these were taken. :-)

I have had one bad encounter with wasps. While photographing a spider I backed into a wasp nest. I was proud that I managed to not drop the camera during my mad dash for safety.

These are very nice. I need to post mine of a wasp on a sunflower. I love macro as well. What I find amusing is when bees are covered in pollen and they don't seem to mind or care. They are doing their God given job and could care less. They are so efficient. Nice shots!

Well, I can't give you advice, cause I am just learning, but I can say these are wonderful. I will have to keep my eye out for that lens...I have a Fuji S2 pro, but haven't been able to afford many lenses for it yet....Thanks for sharing! What lighting did you use? just the flash from the camera? were these taken outside? in the shade or sun?

Thanks. The same lens is available under three names. Kiron actually is the manufacturer and listed it as a Kiron 105mm macro, f2.8. Most of them were sold under the Vivitar name as a series 1 105mm macro, f2.5 (same lens though). My example was marketed under Lester A Dine, a dental equipment company, for use taking closeups of teeth.

These were all taken outside in daylight. I sometimes use the flash if I stop down beyond f11. The only flash I have thus far is the onboard flash.
