    I almost bought her the Minolta 100mm for Mother's Day, but some asswad stole my debit card number and a good chunk of my money so I couldn't buy it.

    That sucks. It happened to me once, but luckily I was depositing something at almost the same time at the opposite side of the city so my Bank knew it was stolen and refunded me promptly.

    My bank has refunded me now, but still, it was a pain in the rear end.

    Macro work is best done in Manual focus mode. select an f number between 11 and 22. Use flash . Achieve focus by moving camera. Try this and you will work out a system for obtaining crisp images.

    She knows this, but doesn't like to use flash for some reason. I offer to teach her, but she claims it's too complex. I keep telling her it isn't...

    Don't feel alone. My wife will put the head of the subject in the dead center of the frame every time. That is, if I fail to remind her to see the image in the viewfinder as she would like to see the resulting photo. It does take a lot of re-training doesn't it.

    I've actually had good luck with AF and macro lenses, but that's just me and I know how to focus/recompose or put the focus point on what I want and crop later. I am jealous of all the focus points she has though. She's got like 70. I've got like 9.

    There's only one focus point that is important.

    Like your wife (not meaning I "like" your wife ... since I don't actually know her ...), I hate shooting with flash ... even though I have had much training in using them ... I prefer not to use them, even though it does help with macro.
