Re: What's the difference between a lens labeled "Macro" and one that isn't

Stepping slightly outside of your immediate interest, I matched my 17-40 f4 L

basic lens with the 60mm EFS Macro - initally with the expectation of using it as a moderate telephoto; which role it plays very well. Find myself using it more often as a macro.

No telephoto is that adaptable.
