1. cutlerish asked: I think I would adore using a macro, but I'm just worried I won't get enough use out of it. Still, all the glass I have now have unfortunate minimum focusing distances....

    It’s a pain because you need to swap lenses to specifically get macro shots, so things like hiking are annoying if you want to pack light. However, I LOVE MY TAMRON 90MM. Best $400 I ever spent. I use it all the time, and it makes a great alternative portrait lense if you can get far enough away ;) The macro novelty hasn’t worn off and I’ve had it for 6 or 7 years now.
