That’s what I’m really enjoying about the 135/4.5. We’re shooting Prunus 
virginiana and Crataegus douglasii douglasii blossoms that are so far up in the 
tree we can’t reach them… at close to 1:1!

There’s a 135/4.5 on evilBay right now for $149. Add a ~$100 Telescoping 
Extension Tube, and you’ve got your long-throw macro that will also focus at 
infinity, albeit manual-focus only, and no bells and whistles like focus
