    Ya u can convert it to macro, i using the Raynox DCR-250.
    A simple adaptor to attached to the lens like the lens cover.
    Focusing distance is abt 10-15cm.

    Use it as reverse marco Lens.

    I will use it to throw in someone's head who wants to grab my cam...

    To TS.. just like what others said.. leave all your lenses behind except this lens and you will know how to use it...

    AF is possible, although there will be extreme hunting and it misses nearly 99% of the time. However, just release the shutter button at almost the right spot and you'll have a good chance of locking on it with AF on the next attempt. I did this with a 300mm (tripod) + 50mm reverse handheld. Although everyone says AF is not possible, I don't see why.. :S
    Looking for Canon 100mm F2 USM :)
