Ok BobT, I don't use macro mode at all just have camera on full zoom with 2.0 TC and aperture priority set all saved in my C1 setting.You need to be about 5 or 6 feet away for this to work well the camera just won't focus when closer and you don't get focus confirmation

Just to clarify, Andy, you can use this set-up effectively from 4½ feet measured from the plane of the sensor (approximately the tripod mount on the bottom of the cam.) See my post here that shows the results at 4½ feet:
