Morgan,
Should also comment on your question about tubes with the 50.  Focus 50 to
full extension, then add tubes.  Compensation will then be taken care of in
the lens by the floating element.

Tom's macro inquiry got me thinking about an upcoming project: Shooting
close-ups of an ornate pocketwatch that belonged to my grandfather.  I
have the 50/2 macro, but this lens isn't well suited for really close
work (I'm told) or (I'm also told) for use with extension tubes.  Why?
Would I be better off with the 100 2.8 (or the 50 1.8) and extenders?  I
probably need about 5 or 6mm of critical DOF.

I'll probably use the T32 off-camera with a half-milk jug grotto as a
diffuser, and the 2S or 2N.
