Quote:No one in their right mind is going to put an extension tube on the 70-200 to shoot at MFD. Next you are probably going to tell me that you have the whole rig on a heavy tripod running around after these critters? Didn't someone tell you that Nikon invented a macro lens decades ago?
I used to shoot macro using a 400 mm lens and tubes. Was great for insects. Great working distance, excellent subject isolation. You may be unfamiliar with this way of shooting close-ups, but that doesn't mean it's no good. In fact it's probably the best way for some subjects.
