mtngal : I am in the process of choosing one, at the moment it is the Tamron 90 but maybe the Sigma, or the Pentax or the Vivitar !

The 70-300 will stay with me until I get the lens above and the 55-300 (Mike's samples sold me on this) and then it'll go to balance the books ... sort of
Though reading Paul's comments above I may have to re-think my plan .... decisions, decisions !

I have the Vivitar Series One 105mm macro, the one I have is older (unsold new stock) and I think it was made by Kiron (it's an A lens so manual focus but I never used auto focus for macro anyway). However, the new Pentax WR macro, with it's round aperture blades and sealing, would be a hard lens for me to resist if I were buying now. It's probably twice what I bought the Viv for though!

If all goes well, I should have a Vivitar 105 on it's way to me soon. I've wanted one ever since all of you started getting them a few years ago and were enamored with them. Well, I finally broke down.

Harriet - one thing I've learned in this process is the Vivitar with the serial number starting with 22 was made by Kiron, the next three numbers were the year (1 digit) and month of manufacture. Just a tidbit of info for you.
