What are your views on these lenses before i buy? I have a Pentax K-5.

Kevin.

The pentax 100mm f2.8 is one of the highest rated 100mm macro lenses around, and it is the same lens as the Tokina AT-X 100mm macro. Unfortunately, Pentax users cannot get the cheaper Tokina version. Only Canon and Nikon users can do that. The Sigma is also a very good lens, but I would get the Pentax if cost is not a consideration. If I were to get the Tokina for a Nikon or Canon, I would go with the Tokina over the Sigma. Have you considered the 150mm f/2.8 Sigma macro lens?
