And we have a new entry into the Macro family!

Who is it?

It’s the 36-72 f/3.5 E Series! Smaller and cuter and less beloved than its bigger brother (prominently featured on this website as in early 2012), the 36-72 is sharp, contrasty, has little or no zoom creep (unlike the 75-150, which can only be described as a complete creeper—and provides brilliant color rendition, so it’s a shame it doesn’t get more love.

It’s a pain to use reversed and extended, though, since the maximum focusing distance is about an inch and a half.

ISO100, 4 seconds, f/11
