Well this is disappointing...

When I first looked at the Celtic I found this page (several years old- 2005):
http://minolta.rokkor.de/celticlenses.htm#Celtic%20135%20mm%203.5

I see no markings in the photos saying it's a macro lens.

So I went back to the receipt from B&H (used equipment) and... no mention of macro there either. And the listing is gone so I can't look at that for the 8th time.

Apparently I read what I wanted to read. I have a hard time accepting I read the listing on several separate occasions and got it wrong each time, but there it is. So now I'll have a 135mm legacy prime. I don't see me throwing more $$$ at extension tubes and a flash just to make myself feel better, so I think a friend with a NEX-5N + kit lens may get a gift in the near future... then he can feed the white elephant!
