Designed for Samsung cameras but it also fits on on Pentax digital cameras bodies, the Schneider 100mm f/2.8 macro lens offers true 1:1 macro shooting, and is compatible with both digital and film lenses. The 100mm focal length equates to 153mm (35mm equivalent) when used with a DSLR, allowing the photographer to maintain a slight distance from the subject, with a minimum focus distance of 1'. On top of that the f/2.8 maximum aperture allows extremely shallow depth of field. This fast aperture and mid-telephoto focal length has the added benefit of making this optic an ideal portrait lens. The lens includes a distance scale showing the distance in feet and meters, as well as a magnification scale. A clamp (focus lock) enables the lens to be locked so the focus doesn't move between shots, and prevents the front element from succumbing to the forces of gravity if shooting from above, for example during flat copy work or flowers.
