    As a side issue, does anyone out there produce screw-on macro lenses
    that are achromats? Most appear to be singlets, which always add CA.

    I have one requirement for a lens; That it not compromise what the
    camera is capable of too much. IMO, Canon's kit lens does. I once
    had a Tamron 80-210 zoom. It sucked. I got rid of it. I also had a
    400mm Tokina. It had no contrast. I dumped it.

    I find exactly the opposite to be true with my point and shoots.

    Really? How often do you get that annoying "burned out" folliage look
    with a macro shot? You know, where the tops of trees seem to be
    disintigrating because of excessive saturation of pixels in the sensor
    where the bright sky meets the leaf edges? It see that with most P&S
    cameras.

    Are you going to ever make a valid statement?

    You can burn out highlights just as easily in a macro shot if your
    lighting isn't even.

    Sure, but you don't encounter that very much in macro work, at least
    not like you do with landscapes therefore macro is more forgiving
    than other camera work, for the average shot. The only real issue is
    dof.
