Hmmm, I wonder if they did that to target the D3? :lol: Probably a good move since the 1DsIII is near as well.

Hey Damian...what lens do you use for your macro shots?

I'm looking at re-evaluating my lens collection with the holidays coming up. I'm debating between a few lenses:

new Pentax DA 18-250 for lightweight all-around travel
Pentax 50mm 1.4
Pentax 70mm 2.4 Pancake limited
Pentax 50mm 2.8 Macro

I'm torn between any combination of these, and i'll sell my 18-50 Kit lens and the da 50-200.

(Sorry for the hijack....)

I don't really have a true macro lens. The one I shot this week's photo with is a 70-210 f4 SMC A. It's 30 years old or so, and it has macro at the 70mm end. I can focus as close as ~10 inches maybe? 1:3 magnification if I recall correctly. It's a stellar fucking lens though.

I'd try to find a 100mm 'Dental' macro on ebay for true macro capability on the Pentax.
