It will not produce a true 1:1, so it is not a macro lens. It will get as close as 9.8".
Oh I completely agree! There is no way I would hand my 65mm to a new macro shooter. It inspires frustration in me, and I know what it is capable...

Awesome! Now you have a definite winner, I like it a lot! :)
Make sure to post the results! :)
