No Longer My Go-To Macro

Crazy thread.

That's just nuts, how can a 1:1 macro lens be replaced by a huge and cumbersome tele zoom lens that only goes to about 1:4.7?

Better would be my Panasonic 45-150mm lens with a Raynox 250 on the front where I do get better  than 1:1 (real macro) at a huge working distance, now THAT could replace the 60mm macro lens, but it hasn't for me. The 60mm is just so nice to use.

Get the rating back to 5 or whatever, you unjustly reduced it because of your preference for closeups and not for macro.

Regards.... Guy
