On Sunday I explored what the 40/2.8 can do as a macro lens. I found it works fine in AI Servo on a 31mm extension tube -

Also tried it on a 13mm tube with a 250D. It doesn't like to AF with the 250D so these are MF shots -

These are cropped a fair bit, some down to maybe 40% of the original frame. I used a 270EX II with a home-made diffuser on a Magic Arm. IMO the 40/2.8 makes a fine cheap macro lens, much better than the 50/1.8.
