I was thinking to buy a macro lens when I thought I may try with what I have first. I shot this jurrasic era sd card for sample (plus leaf) with the kit lens at 55mm. How much more can the macro lens go further? If you can shoot one of your sd card with your macro lens at least I'd know the difference. Thanks in advance. I tried few times with this in manual, they all came out reasonably accaptable. Lucky the sun was up.
