First test shot of Vivitar 100mm/3.5 Macro (pics)


just received my Vivitar 100mm/3.5 Macro, it comes with the 1:1 matched converter but it's a Pentax K/ Ricoh so i did remove the pin to mount it to my K-01. It's in very good condition but certainly feels plastic compared to the DFA 100mm Macro WR !

Here it is in comparison to my Tamron 90mm Macro VC:

Here is a quick shot i too in my backyard of a newly born fern (with the 1:1 converter, and on a tripod at around f/5.6-8):

Taken with the 1:1 converter.

Crop from the shot above.

IQ with the 1:1 converter is quite good, i didn't expected it to be good enough for my taste but looks good, now i will have to try it on Frogs !
