Just wonder how you were able to focus 100 macro on such short distance.
I had it on manual focus if that would make any difference

Intresting, the minimum focus distance is 12" (distance from the sensor to the subject) for the 100 Macro and the lens is 4.7" without the hood. Add a bit for the distance from sensor to the rear of the lens and then add in the hood at ~3.125" and you still have about 4 inches from the front of the hood.
I never really thought about the numbers, I usually just get as close as I can with it in focus.

Mmmm, maybe the setup is an "example" and not "actual." He probably just set the camera there, shot the setup and then went and moved the camera to get focus...
just my opinion and opinions are like butt holes, everyone has one and they all stink
no, that's actually how it was set up.

With my 100L which is .99ft focus distance, I've had many instances where it will still focus with the subject nearly touching the glass. With the hood on, I've been able to completely cover the subject with it, and still focus. That's on the 50D, though, not sure how it would act on the 5dII.
maybe the 7D makes it different?

Having extension tubes mounted may make the difference.
Just my opinion lol
no extension tubes.
...hopefully someday though!
