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.Woodwideweb said: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.
I've been very close to moving to the 2.8L II several times but in the end I don't do it either. The combination of size, weight, IS, close focus and price make me stick with the 4L IS.MrFotoFool said:I will continue with my (perhaps vain) attempt to bump this thread and entice others to post. Sometimes I wonder if I should sell this lens and get an f2.8 version (probably Tamron G2), but the sharpness and ergonomics of this lens make me stick with it.
