Re: 40mm macro does 1:1

The problem with the short focal length macros, like the 40mm, 55mm, etc. is the working distance. If you are taking pictures of, say, stamps or coins it doesn't really matter But if you are looking to take pictures of bugs, you need a longer focal length (and more working distance)...at least 90mm (I had the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro -- and sold it to move to 105mm), if not 105mm, 150mm or 200mm.
