The F50 f1,7 is one of the fastest focusing lens out there. The FA50 macro is not Just turn the focus ring manually and you'll see why : the throw is about 3-4 times as long on the macro. AND the f1,7 lets more light in, helping the AF system.
Hey, I wonder how that last quote above got attributed to me?

Yeah, I guess I didn't realize that the system wouldn't recognize that it was a quote (from someone else) within my post. No big deal.

I'm not sure that's true, at least on the FA50/2.8 macro. I just pulled it off the shelf and mounted it to my camera and regardless of whether the clamp is on or off, you can still focus through the entire range. I know the FA100/2.8 macro has a focus limiter, but as far as I can tell, the FA50/2.8 macro has just a clamp that has no effect on limiting the focus range.
Sorry, you are right. I made the misstake of assuming the FA50 macro worked like the FA100 macro.
