I just ordered my second copy of this lens, after selling the first one. My plan was to let the 40-150 Pro serve my macro needs, but planning a trip to Costa Rica this summer and I just think I might find a macro very useful. My first copy was only used once on a tripod to photograph wildflowers. I used it on a tripod and I thought the images were a little soft. I manually focused using focus peaking, and I did not turn off IBIS. Shutter speeds would have put me in the shutter shock range. I also found the 1To1 switch function a little confusing. I can return this lens any time for two weeks. What am I missing here? This lens is pretty highly rated by websites and users, although some report difficulty using manual focus. Would welcome any opinions.
