These don't appear too often, and with the upcoming purchase of the new Pentax 100mm Macro, I guess it should move on to a loving home.

This one is in superb condition, Boxed, case and original caps and metal hood.

I'll put some photos up when I get a chance but if you are interested please send me a PM

Price: 249 inc P&P (No Offers)

UK Only, Bank Transfer, PayPal Gift or Cash on collection, inspection welcome.

Somebody grab this little beauty before Lennybloke decides that:
a. Some lenses are just too good to let go; and
b. There's always a good reason to have more than one macro lens.
If I hadn't bought one last year (from SRS, paid a bit more) I'd have jumped at it. It's a very, very good lens. And for APSC users it has a classic FOV - same as what you got with the usual 105mm on 35mm film.

Go on, make Lennybloke's day!

thanks Steve - I was just taking another look at some of the images I took with this lens the other day and spotted one that illustrates the thin D.O.F. and detail it is capable if capturing :

Look at the tiny "hairs" it has picked out just in front of the yellow corn (just above centre) it's a shame the highlights blow it out a little, but you get the idea
