Hey sem, that was a very informative post! Thanks.

Let me see if I get it right: regarding 1:1 macro shots, all 4 of them will require the tip of the front glass going at least 10~11mm close to the subject, that means I "get" a few more inches when framing the same subject, 1:1 with the tamron, right? Due to the extending barrel.

Following this logic, I think after-all the extending mechanism is beneficial, cause it would decrease the chance of the subject getting scared, also less light would be blocked.

I was really under the impression the FL had somewhat a stronger influence on the actual framing but I got it that MWD is all that matter. Now that I realized they will deliver roughly the same macro quality, I have to look for other attributes to make my decision.

What would you recommend sem?
