Macro? Why? I can't figure out why this has a dedicated macro mode. Even when I'm in normal shooting mode, I can close focus the same distance away from an object, compared to being in macro mode and focusing on the same object. Also, I am a bit disapointed that the close-focusing ability doesn't extend through the zoom choices. You can be 5" away from a subject at 25mm, but you have to be about 2 feet (or more) away from the object if you're shooting at 100mm.

Is there ANY zoom lens from ANY brand that has a constant close focusing range?   I dont think so.
