An interesting focal length.

Great to see alternative lens suppliers, and the Irix 150mm f2.8 Macro has almost enticed me in once or twice, but this focal length is so close to the D-FA*50/1.4 that it'll have to be one hell of a lens to compete (unless it's dirt cheap) - just my thoughts

It's a really, really lovely lens. Repeat after me: "Resistence is futile, resistence is futile, resistence is futile ..."

Seriously, if the 45mm is as good as the 150mm, those who like that FOV are in for an optical and tactile treat. It is manual focus only, though. That doesn't matter for macro but might be an issue for some potential 45mm users.

I was just pleased to see at least one manufacturer having the confidence to produce a new lens in a Pentax mount
