    I saw a thread for the Kiron and the Vivitar but not one for the Lester Dine, so I figured I would start one. The three lenses are all made by Kino and have identical optics.

    I just got my E-M5 so only have a few samples using this lens (have many more using my old Fuji X-E1 if anyone is interested). The first ones I will post are not macro photos but wildlife photos I took today.

    I had a Lester A Dine 105mm dental macro lens back on my Pentax k10d / k20d. Amazing lens. Sharp, sharp, and sharp.

    I just picked up a mint copy of this amazing lens and this is my first shot with it.

    Great shots ! I actually bid and won on EBay on one of these but didn't meet the reserved price, I was so upset that I just ended up getting the micro Nikkor 105mm f2.8 ais but I do regret not trying to get another one.

    Here is another I took today. Very sharp lens, but the length makes it a little hard to evaluate correct focus in the viewfinder.
