The Pentax smc D FA 100mm F2.8 WR Macro is a telephoto lens with ultra-close focusing capabilities. With high-quality, weather-resistant construction, it delivers clear, high-contrast images from both telephoto and macro perspectives. It is ideal even in damp, inclement outdoor conditions for close-up photographers looking for full-size subject magnification and outstanding depth of field control for the smallest of subjects.
Weather-Resistant The Pentax smc D FA Macro 100mm f/2.8 WR lens features a weather-resistant design, is ideal for outdoor shooting when used on popular Pentax weather resistant DSLR bodies.
Rounded Aperture Blades The rounded aperture blades help improve bokeh at wide apertures for silky smooth background de-emphasis.
Super Protect The front lens elements of the lenses use the special Pentax SP (Super Protect) coating to protect the front lens against dust, grease, finger marks or smearing, making the lenses exceptionally easy to clean.
Quick Shift Focus System The Pentax "Quick Shift Focus System" allows the photographer to manually alter the focus point at will without having to take the camera out of the auto-focus mode.
This review is from: PENTAX 21910 smc PENTAX D FA MACRO 100mm f/2.8 WR Lens
Pros: A sharp, very sharp, macro lens. Great for portraits. The lens is water and weather resistant; good for wildlife, and flower shots. No more worrying about rain, snow, or dew on flowers etc. Very tough, all metal design. Auto focus is fast, manual focus is very smooth. It is hard to explain my satisfaction with this lens; it has become my favorite, I always leave it on the camera.
Cons: No serious cons. No visable F-stops on outside barrel, not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: I first bought the Pentax 100 Macro with No WR (Weather resistance). We had it for about a couple of years, it quickly became the family favorite. We have four semi-pro to pro photographers in the family. We or I shot more photos that I loved with this lens than in many previous years. Both macro and portrait. The lens seemed very light and a little delicate, although it performed great under large physical stress (3 out of 4 of my kids use Pentax, and it was passed around constantly). When I read about the Pentax 100 Macro with WR, it got my attention. In the family we have a Pentax *ist, a K10, a K20 and a K-7 body all WR bodies; with many non-WR lenses to pass around. It seems time that we get a lens or two of the WR lenses. It’s been a great addition to the group, a highly favored lens.
