Re: FX/35mm lens on a DX body?

I actually did have my eye on that lens! The minimum focus distance of just under a foot is especially appealing to me. Since I'm new to this I overlooked a lot of things, including focus distance, when I chose my first lens, and then learned the hard way that I have to be nearly five feet away from my subject. Very unpleasant surprise when I was hoping to use the lens for close-ups and near-macro.. I'm not really sure what my reasoning was, but I think that I got plain old "zoom" confused with "macro". Oops...
