Click and rfd78, thanks for the complements.
Jack, how do you find the macro mode when not using the centre point of the 6D AF? I struggled when using it handheld in the macro mode.
Thanks
Chris

I was influenced to buy based on macro but haven't used it a whole lot and probably mainly center focus because from experience I learned that non-cross points aren't too good.  What happened to me is that my 300 2.8 II ended up being my "macro at a distance" sometimes using extension tubes or otherwise cropping.  I found distance to be my friend with most bugs etc.

Just looked for macro and didn't find but here is my contribution at the wide and narrow ends.  A great walk around lens.

I am still loving this lens. Here is a shot of Salzburg, Austria, taken a couple months ago (with a 5D3).
