A weather-resistant wonder with a tough all metal body (including the lenshood), and 1:0.94 magnification. Excellent sharpness with smooth manual focusing, but a slightly whiny AF.
With a sleek, retro style, Pentax’s latest version of its 100mm f/2.8 macro looks much different from earlier iterations. The $700 (street) lens, joining the WR (weather-resistant) line, now has a metal body instead of reinforced polycarbonate, and a metal manual-focusing ring, along with weathersealing. Perfect for nature and travel photographers who are hard on their glass.
