For some ambient-light sample shots of what the smc PENTAX-DA 35mm F2.8 Macro Limited produces on a K-3, check out some flower closeups

They're all from this year and should give you some idea of what to expect at close range.

However, the lens is also quite capable as a standard lens for APS-C:

Hope this helps.

Nice photo's! Do you have any thought of what these photo's would look like when taken with a 100mm macro? Just the background perspective? or also the DOF? (depends on f/ of course, but in terms of ease of use / getting the right DOF)?
