For my use, I set up the bill about 6 inches from the end of my lens.
I ended up with +5 being noticeable sharper in picking up the clothes fibers inside the bill.
This was with a tripod and bracketed sets of 3 shots at each MFA step.
The AF was consistently sharper at +5
I retested the lens on a few item, such as a soda bottle label at 3-4 feet and the lens was no less sharp with MFA +5

The AF and MFA will behave differently when comparing macro distances to infinity. But I am happy with my adjustments.
I have have to remember to set my ISO shutter speed to 1/125 even with the IS. But that's only an issue in natural low light.

Yeah its such a good all purpose lens. Love it as a Macro or 100mm prime. It really sucks too because I want a 135L but this thing does as good of a job as I need a 100mm prime to do that the extra 35mm of the 135mm will only be for sharpness.

This lens is ridiculously sharp for headshots. I didn't believe it when people said they want a slightly softer lens...I almost always have to soften the skin a bit which I'm not complaining. The details are just amazing :love:

Thank you, Annie; you're so kind. My son hates photos but he needed some shots, very casual with natural light only. Missy hasn't returned, so he was a nice subject :)

I dunno, Pani Renata, but that halo round his head I find extremely distracting and detracting. :(

Unbelievable lens. I waited a long time to add this to my kit because I assumed I would only use it for a small percentage of my images. But, I'm now seeing how versatile it really is.

We lost power for a day due to an ice storm, but I had my batteries charged and my wife suggested a photo of the two of us for our 17th anniversary:

Herr, Alveric, I weiss, es ist nicht gut aber mein Sohn würde sich nich photographieren lassen für mehr als 2 Sekunden :)
The background was ghastly, with his kitchen with a lot of stuff behind him. I spent 5 minutes processing in PS and I know the masking sucks etc but the objective was to have a simple casual shot. I consider myself a lucky mom to have a single shot of my kid in the last 15 years :) Liebe Grüße :)
