F 35-105mm f/4-5.6 Macro help

Hi,

Can anyone tell me how to do Macro on this lens? It appears from specs on-line that you should be able to close focus to 25cm but I can't seem to get any closer than just over a meter. I noticed another red mark next to the A settings but still could not figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

If it's anything like the A-series variety, you have to actually push the focusing ring away from you when you get to the end of the zoom range and then it'll engage the macro mode.

I just figured it out.

Thank you for the quick response. Played with it some more and found you need to rotate the focus adjust ring past the 105mm mark and click past it to the Macro____ designation.

I was being too gentle and over thinking it.

Problem solved.
