This is a very special lens.

Re: This is a very special lens.

Jeff I know this is always a frustrating thing with macro lenses in AF and as you say sometimes a slight change in focus can be the worst; I think this is because when the motor kicks in it goes past the point of perfect focus and gets lost because you dealing with such fine tolerances hence the need for long throws.

When shooting macros you can't beat manual focus and moving in and out.

The longer the macro lens the more hunting seems to happen eg the 50 is better and the 35 is best ( it hardly hunts at all ).
