I purchased an MD 35-70mm f/3.5 for $30 and I have not been disappointed with it. Love the constant aperture, very sharp even with my Lens Turbo attached to it, and it's a focal length that I love to deal with. Not too wide and not too long. Unfortunately, this lens does not have the 1:7/1:4 macro mode that the new version has. I don't do macro a lot, but the MFD is really long for my taste (1m). It's good for working with 70mm but when working with 35mm it gets kind of annoying. Is there a way to shorten the MFD whether it'd be from a Close Up Filter or an extension tube? I'm just looking for a way to decrease the MFD.
