It seems fairly robust and easy to use... worth the money.

1) Not a good low light performer. Don't think you are going to set this up in a low lit room and a tripod and get the AF to cooperate unless you provide additional light. You will have to manual focus.
2) No AF limiter, which wouldn't be a problem if 1) wasn't a problem.
Ok, bad news out of the way, lets go over the good news:
1) This lens is TACK SHARP. You won't find a sharper lens. This thing could resolve out to 200mp is my guess, but we won't know about that given the current state of sensors.
2) With well lit situations this lens is an AWESOME macro AND portrait lens.
So the dilemna is how much to punish it for the low light performance. In my view, not much and here's why: For what this lens does well you are not going to find a lens that does better. This lens max's out the categories it does well in (sharpness, color, contrast) when properly lit so I'm going to give it 5 stars. To do otherwise would be like taking points off the Canon 300mm 2.8 because it didn't take decent picures in the house at the last birthday party. One lens cannot be all things to all people.
This Pentax 100mm Macro is light, very sharp, easy to use and almost perfect for the specific use for macro and portrait photography. In my family we have four photographers; this lens quickly became the favorite. I like it so much that it became the lens that I always leave on the K-7 body.
The slow focus problem that has been mentioned I have not noticed because I never autofocus on portraits or macro photography. I almost always use a tripod and use manual focus. I also have a preference for prime lenses; they seem to have a richer feel. You will not regret this purchase; it has made my photo's better, especially the pictures of the bugs and flowers. I will admit that I am going to replace it this week with the WR (Water Resistant) version. I wish I would have bought the WR macro first.
