    My 19-35mm has an MFD of 1.75ft(.5m) and it's not much of a problem when using on landscapes, but when shooting at random subjects, I get a little annoyed how far that MFD is. I used a Tamron 17-35mm on my Canon DSLR and that had a MFD of 0.98ft(.3m) and it was really useful.

    Anyone out there have any methods for getting a closer MFD for their lenses?

    Well, you can use extension tubes or a closeup filter, but you lose infinity focus with either option.
