Just got a E3.5/30 Macro Lens and looking for general advice
Feb 17, 2013

The subject line says it all. I have used it a couple different times and it is more difficult to get good results than I expected. I was trying to take pictures of insects and it was really hard to get the insect in focus. What mode should I be using? I was using the Macro mode in the Scene menu. At what distance from the subject is ideal? 1-2 inches? What benefit will this lens provide for subjects much further away, say 3-5 ft? Thanks for any comments.
