Re: No Longer My Go-To Macro

I had the converse experience.  Had been using the 60 mm only for macro, and 75-300 II for birds.  Was in the back yard stalking bugs with the 60 mm, and was presented with squirrels & woodpeckers instead, so I took the shots, thinking they would be throwaway due to insufficient reach.  Wow!  Suddenly I understood what all the fuss about "prime" lenses is about.  It was like I had done a pretty strong Photoshop "unsharp mask" to my photos, but it was all done by the lens!
