F/16 seems to be the general sweet spot for my macro needs (at least for bugs). If you are using the macro filters then try to get away with using the lowest one you can to preserve the image. When I first started the set i got had two bad filters #2 and #10. I couldnt get focus manually at all.

Manual Focus via Live view if possible for precision, and a higher f/stop like rick said. Once you start stopping down then prepare to use flash, lighting or a stable shooting platform if your not already.
