Is that the 10-20 focused down to about 3 inches?

While I didn't check the exact measurement website says - Minimum focusing distance of 24cm (9.4”) at all focal lengths

I was pretty close to the min as I don't have a great deal of room with my desk at work being "U" shapped; iPhone photo from behind and above makes it look much closer.

I wonder if that is 9 inches from the sensor and not the front element. I haven't tried focusing that close with this lens. For some reason I thought this was more like 18 inches on this lens. My 17-70 "macro" does about 2.5" but this is news to me. I'll have to give it a try. :-)

Looks like you are correct;

Makes the object 6" from the lens; that is pretty close for a non-macro lens.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

What filters are you guys using on this lense for everyday use if any at all? Haze, polarizer? New user but long time canon owner. Unfortunately I have neglected to use my camera for quite some time and have fallen behind on the digital side of things. so please excuse the noob post but want to order this lens with filters at the same time.

I have full set of filters for my film lenses but I know from research that the digital side was different when it comes to the haze and uv filters.
