Question about Tamron 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 LD Lens for Minolta Maxxum
Hi I have model 672D and it does not have a switch to change it to Macro like model 572D or 772D....I bought it along with my Canon Rebel xsi....and the salesperson said it would be able to convert from a zoom to a macro....I don't know how to do this (since there isn't a simple switch) and of course the salesperson is not getting back to me....I am new to all of this....:)
Thank you for your time...
From my experience, many zoom lenses that have a macro feature simply kicks into macro mode when the lens is in fully zoomed position. Remember, macro is used to take pictures of something (usually like a flower, insect, etc.) and to magnify it several or many times larger than it really it is. And as a result the subject is huge and sharply focused with a very blurry background. Another thing to keep in mind is that there is usually a focusing limit for the lens in terms of how close one can focus a subject in MACRO zoom mode. In other words, you (the lens) may have to be at least a foot or more away from the subject in order to automatically focus sharply. On this note, if you have manual focusing capability, you should be able to take pictures in macro zoom mode from even shorter distance from the subject, resulting in more larger than life pictures!
