Any tips for using this lens for macro? mine arrived in the mail, So far I struggle with focus, even at narrow apertures, I find that just a tiny bit of movement will mess the focus up!

You need a tripod or some other type of stabilization.

I think I am fixing to buy one of these to compliment my incoming 17-40L....I figure this and a Sigma 30 1.4 will give me a great lineup of lenses....plus I am a sucker for macro shots. I vastly prefer it to shooting people. :)

I'm very afraid of spiders so I don't know why I even took a picture of it (well, my bf thought it was awesome...)

It's been a while since I've posted here. These surprised me this afternoon after dumping off my camera so I thought I'd share.

Nice to see something more than insects and spiders with the 60mm. I toy with getting this lens, as I seem to have a hard time framing what I shoot with the 85mm.

So more general all around pics of the 60mm is my vote.
