Re: Question for macro experts and macro lens owners

Both the 40 & 60 macros do not have VR. You will have to hold the camera very steady in macro mode. You can get a small 3 led tripod then hold 2 legs against your body to hold the camera/lens steady. You should use a tripod + a spirit level + a 2 second timer release or a remote release to hold the camera/lens very steady.

If you need VR for handholding, you will need either the 85 or 105 macro lens.  You may also use one of the VR normal kit lens at the close focus distance.
