Moderators won't say because they don't discuss moderation action against individual members, other that people will only get a permanent ban when all other options have failed or when they are spammers. Adam even goes so far as the advise not to do business with DCshooter. On why not he is silent.

Typical for politically old fashioned Pentax Forum,run by 19th century anachronism.

Try Brian Gohacki @bwg7@law.georgetown.edu

Nice lens and pics. I should dig out mine and do a test. Having been busy collecting 135mm preset, I almost forgot my beloved 135mm CF.

I use it mostly for non-macro work and find it excellent too. Here are a couple of samples on full frame:

At f2.8:



100% magnification of the photo above:



At f/8 (straight out of the camera):



I find it very sharp, and I like its bokeh.
