    Well, it finally arrived. My new EF-S 60mm f2.8 Macro USM.

    I have taken a few shots already, which have turned pretty good, but I would like some advice.

    Whenever I used macro before it was only as as part of a zoom lens, which had the macro switch on it. So, using the EF-S lens is very different.

    Have any of you used this lens? If so, how do you find it? I was surprised how close I have to get to the subject I want to take a shot of. I find it near impossible to fill the frame with very small subjects. Is that normal?

    I know this might sound pretty stupid, but I just want to know whether I'm using the lens correctly, or if I'm making some stupid mistake.
