Very nice images. But this brings up a question about the SX40 and close-up(AKA: macro) shooting.

As I understand it, you can set the camera for "Macro", but need to have FL set for full width......no zoom? Correct? With this setting you must be VERY close to your subject.

But if you choose to use the full zoom length(150mm), you do NOT set the camera to "macro", but to "normal"?

How far back must one be for the closest that you can get to your subject when using full zoom? Will the camera fail to produce it's "focus beep" confirmation sound if you are too close?
