Fine for single shot, not so good for tracking Smile

Fine for macro, insects, that sort of thing.

I`m not big on macro Paul but from what I`ve read the new macro lens seems very good.

I have no doubt Paul that the Macro lens will be very good but its got to have a lot of development to even get near the results that Canon, Nikon, Tamron, Sigma have for Dlr,s....

I wont even start to talk about IS in macro lenses combined with a decent AF system in an slr to eradicate the need for a tripodSmile

I`m not really the right person to be talking about macro, last time I tried it was with film camera`s and using predictive focus half the time, and that was many years ago Smile

I never used modern Canon, Nikon or Olympus for serious macro, so i have no idea how good this is compared to anything else.

..and no doubt many more toggers - if it was that simpleSad

Out of curiosity, how did those of you find switching from a crop sensor (1.6x), to full frame? - I do mean for wildlife, not other genres

I moved from 1.6x to 1.3x and didn't really notice any difference

I wouldn`t make any rash decisions just yet, there could be a replacement for the 7D on the way.
