Using a longer lens will help you more with the macro, the 35mm is quite wide. Of course landscape and portraits are possible, you can use it to shoot whatever you like.

ya i know what it does and im just wondering if i can dont take it out and do normal shooting anot
Without infinity focus, I don't see how you could do potrait that easily. I mean it is difficult to find the correct focus point.

Extension tube is more useful for macro work only (I believe). Plus... it wouldn't take much effort removing extension tube from your lens, yes?

Erm.. do you mean you want to attach the lens without tube? (Please avoid Singlish..)
Of course you can do that and shoot whatever you like. Just take note of the specifics of the focal length in terms of perspective.

Then plan your shooting more carefully. Jumping from macro to portrait does not sound like a planned activity, rather like mindless snapping around.

Maybe Dslr is not for you? If you are that adverse to switching lenses, maybe you should switch to a prosumer camera.
