I own and started with the 30mm too. Its true, the 1:1 distance is too close. After some time I buyer the okd Tamron 90mm and use it quiet often for handhold macros. The slow AF is sometimes hunting and basically slow for long corrections. Also the tube is extending. I wish I had the new one with USD and non extending front tube. If you have the money, then buy the new one instead.
