  2. I shoot with the Fuji X system and usually do my close-ups with either my 55-200 or my 18-135. I also have an extension tube. I sold the 60 macro because it was too short and I was never using it. I’ve been wanting to attend one of your workshops and the WV one is very close and perfect timing for me. Do you think I will still get a benefit from attending even though I don’t have a macro lens.
