I just got this Sigma 70-210 lens and it looks something like this:
The focusing ring cannot go beyond the 1.2m mark and yet there is a MACRO written down there. The manual also writes something like "With Sigma zoom lenses, you will enjoy macro photography simply and easily."
Question is, how am I supposed to 'enjoy macro photography' when I have to be at least 1200mm away from my subject to have it in focus? Is it because I have yet to understand what 'macro' actually means?
It is really making me wonder.. and if you are wondering too, the manual isn't of much help at all.
Can someone help me out on this?
