Thanks ! Yeah... It can be tricky! Especially when your lens (tamron 70-300) has got a tendency to focus before/after subject! Glass needs to be plain (shooting through bow-front glass is difficult), and clean! Moreover, you have to take photos in the dark to minimize reflections caused by back light! In my case (mentioned tamron 70-300) I've used "macro" function of the lens (90cm minimum distance) so IS-on is a must! I'm getting sigma 24-70 f/2.8...
