View Full Version : Good lens for macro

14th June 2011, 04:00 PM
Hi all,
I'm trying to get more macro shots, I'm using the oly 70-300 lens but just can't the detail I'm after?

By the time I have got the distance right I just can't get the thing to focus

So a couple of questions

1 is this lens the one to use for macro
2 is it better to manual focus
3 any other help or points that may help with macro shots

Many thanks

use manual focus with this lens
use live view to focus
when you have the money buy a 50mm f2
