Got a 60 2.8 macro lens yesterday. I was also bidding on some Kenko tubes on eBay but was outbid in the end :(

Anyway, I'm interested in macro tips for newbs, etc. Also, anyone use a 60 2.8 with extension tubes?

Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.
