[align=left]Hi,[/b][/align]


[align=left]I sill thinking to get D FA 50 f2.8, D FA 100 f 2.8 or other macro lens w longer zoom range. I come from film age and find difficulties to manage distance and occasionally missing great moment (1.5 x crop factor phobias).[/b][/align]


[align=left]I already have this DA 50-200 for a while and never did real test for short distance shots like I did recently. This is a great lens w possibility to handle broad lens assignment as other people said. [/b][/align]


[align=left]Have any suggestions?[/b][/align]


[align=left]Regards,[/b][/align]

wish you would not use this turquoise. it's impossible to read. get a sigma 70-300mm it'll also shoot macros at 1:2.
i have an APO version if you want it PM me.

turquoise sucks.

Robar,

How is your Sigma 70-300 matching visually w your Pentax body?

I so curious to know about this lens. Got any compatibility problems ?

Regards,

RTogog

no compatibility problems. quite a few have this lens. the first two lenses in the 1st post have NO zoom ability. they are fixed primes. both are great lenses.
thanks for not using the turquoise. have yoy seen this thraed?

ck out the ebay thread here. i posted a link to an auction for a vivitar 105mm f2.5. this is as good as either of the two you posted interest in for hundreds less. if you can get it for 150usd then it's a great deal. my only complaints about it is that it's longer than most current macro lenses.

Thanks Robar,



I change mine to default 2, I feel this setting good for my eyes. Sorry, I realize now how difficult you read w cyan color lettering.

I will use for portability reason when I do hiking w tight on weight, your Sigma give better range and nice macro features.



Thanks,

RTogog
