One drawback of this new elicar lens is that since it has the helicoid to go to one to one magnification built in, its bulkier and heavier than the Bokina but built like a tank.

Already bought a replacement for my defunct Bokina macro lens. So far, I'm very satisfied with the performance, spec, and build quality. Its branded ELICAR V-HQ MACRO MC 90mm F2.5 but supposedly its made in Japan by Komine. Its a KA mount, has nice multicoatings, and seems to be as sharp as the Tokina was. Whats better than the tokina, is this goes directly from infinity to 1:1, whereas the tokina
required adding an adapter to go from 1:2 to 1:1.

Heres a sample at f9 full size and a crop of full size.


P.s. I got the lens off an ebay auction for #113 shipped. I call it a poor mans
SMCA 100mm F2.8
