You can't borrow that lens forever, can you?

OK you guys, you can just stop it right now! I have a Tamron SP90mm with the pk/a adaptal and it work just fine even if it is a manual focus and 25 years old and I'll just have to make do with that.
I have about 10 others I need to put on ebay...

Great, sharp, colorful and well composed!
KEH has a used Pentax 100 f2.8 smc D FA macro for "only" $415, and a Sigma 105 f2.8 macro for "only" $379. I think one of these has your name on it!!

Yes, I agree, very nice pics. I'm wondering if we should start a pool trying to guess how long you'll be able to resist buying this lens. I'll be generous and give you six weeks. (But I won't be surprised if you cave in after 3 weeks!)

well... I wish I could, and I would if I could afford it but, I have too many other things taking priority right now, like a badly needed re-roofing job, some work that needs to be done on my Goldwing before my trip to Tenn. in Oct. and on and on...

Hey, I just thought of something. maybe I should start a "feel sorry for GW"
fund where everybody could make donations!
