Photographers hear the word MACRO and thoughts automatically expect to see an image containing intensely detailed close up view.

However, this photographer thought a 70 – 300mm lens was on the camera when in fact a 105mm Micro/macro was mounted.

Macro* - Not what you expected1

Just because a lens has a manufacturers designation as Prime, Zoom, Macro etc. it doesn’t mean that alternative uses aren’t an option.

    1. Thank you Ivor. Since this incident I have been using this lens for more than macro the biggest downside of that is it is heavy and I get worn out before the battery 🙂
